#1 Devuan Derivatives » Kernel panic booting Dowse on a Raspberry pi 2 » 2020-04-27 10:37:17

Replies: 1

Hello I'm wondering if someone could help me with a problem I am having with dowse on a Raspberry Pi 2

When I try to boot the image I get a Kernel panic error. I have re flashed the SD card several times and re downloaded the image but I still get the same error below.

"end Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x0000000b
random: crng init done"

I have looked at a few forums about this error regarding the raspberry pi, the solutions are reinstall it to the SD card or replace the SD card.
Press enter on the keyboard or plug in a mouse.
Apart from replacing the SD card none of these seem to resolve the error sadly. I tested the SD card with Raspbian and it worked fine so I think the SD card is okay.

Hopefully someone might be able to help with this error, dowse looks like a really interesting project.

This is my favorite talk form the Devuan conference. I've watched it many times.
Hopefully one day I will be able to make it in person to a future Devuan conference.

Hi Monti I could be wrong but I don't think backports are ready for Beowulf.
I was able to run LibreOffice using an Appimage from here:
seems to work fine for me.
hope this helps.

Seamonkey user here yip old school Mozilla. though I wonder, Seamonkey and other Firefox based browsers, how long do they have?
Seamonkey 2.46 is based on Firefox 49 but eventually they are going to get to 57 and then what? I don't think they are big enough to go it alone.

I have Vivaldi installed and it's a good browser, I will try GNU Icecat looks interesting, hmmm maybe I'll just go back to using Lynx!

#7 Devuan » Devuan running seti@home on Digital Ocean » 2017-06-05 09:15:50

Hello, first off thanks to everyone for Devuan it's a great distribution!
I decided to setup Devuan on Digital Ocean to run as a Seti@Home server
Being a long time Seti@home fan and all things Astronomical in general, I thought it would be a good idea, and running on Devuan, a better idea.
I already have an older Ubuntu 14.04 server running seti but more the merrier I think, and it also does a few other things besides Seti.

I first upgraded Debian Jessie to Devuan then installed the boinc seti app and configured it.
It runs really well.
If anyone is interested in the Seti@home setup, I followed this tutorial here. … r-debian-7

Thanks again for a great Distribution.
