Recently tried Linux Mint Debian Edition and, while nice, it seemed a little slow.    Also by default, they try to shove a system restore program on you.  Hoping that someone is working on a Linux Mint Devuan Edition.
Thanks

The CD version seemed to lack a browser and Synaptic.  Installed again from the DVD version and have no problems.  Not sure if I have to edit the sources list.  Still using Virtual Box until final comes out.  Looks nice.

Third time is the charm.  Tried again, carefully considering my install choices.  After installing the base system it asks "use a network mirror?"  This time I chose "No"    Later it asks what software to install.  Only three were available.  Devuan desktop, Xfce desktop, and utilities.  I checked all three.  Success!  Log in was fine.  The only problem I see is that when I hit log out the reboot and shutdown options are greyed out.  Both the application menu and the action menu.

Is that a PopEye the sailor man reference?

I understood it to mean, hit F1 and select Xfce, even though that is the only option available.
I tried "just user name-hit enter then password and enter for normal login" nothing.
Type in user, hit enter, box goes blank
Type in password, hit enter, box goes blank again
Nothing happens, can not get to desktop
I must be doing something wrong if no one else is having this problem

I tried two virtualbox installs: the live (devuan_jessie_1.0.0-RC_amd64-live.iso)  and the cd (devuan_jessie_1.0.0-RC_amd64_CD) ISO.  Both get to the screen where it says
"Press F1 to select session."  I press F1 and nothing happens. Using a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse.
Going to try making a live USB next.
