I got antix 19.2 with runit in one of my other partitions, runs great.

In my opinion, is superior and faster than the other init systems.

The Devuan devs should incorporate it soon.

Thanks, heavy.

it did not work for me, server error, purged runit and re-installed sysvinit, rebooted and got sysvinit back.

The only options during install (Expert) is sysvnit and openrc.

#5 Re: Installation » dual boot setup question » 2019-10-08 11:40:53

Install GRUB on the first OS, install the second OS WITHOUT a bootloader, reboot, go to the first OS, and as ROOT:
# update-grub

Reboot, and choose from the menu the OS you want.

Boy, it's good to be back on Devuan and apt-get...
after hopping around for a while, I kept Slackware and Slackel, matter of personal knowledge I think I need.

There are many slackware videos in youtube, for my money, the best are from an old guy named 'eznix'.
He's got 2 videos on slackware, configuration on one, and installation of slapt-get and glapt and sbotools, in case
somebody wants to learn something new or old?

I'm curious. Did you have to manually enable DRM content, or does Void build Firefox/Chromium with that enabled by default?

 
No idea...

If it's enabled by default, this means that your browser automatically downloaded and installed the closed source, proprietary Widevine DRM plugin onto your PC without asking.

I installed chromium, updated all the repos, and then, installed 'chromium-widevine'
Logged into Netflix with my user/passwd and that was it, chrommium-widevine is in the repos.

I apologize for the delay, wasn't aware of your post.

Yeah, well, I'm guilty of being a minimalist and a tight wad, I still drive my mom's 1965 VW bug (made in Germany)...what can I tell you? My idea of installing, is to burn a CD not a DVD. That's why I love FreeBSD and OpenBsd, they got this 'boot only' cds (pretty small) and do everything thru the net.

I do a Devuan net install, install nothing, reboot, and THEN, install what I want:
http://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=1638

My post-installation sound configuration is like this:
$ sudo apt-get install audacious audacity mpv mplayer alsa-tools alsa-utils

then I launch alsamixer:
$ alsamixer

unmute with letter m, adjust volumes, press Esc to get out of alsamixer, go to youtube and play my favorite tunes and raise or lower the volume with my keybinds in my window manager.
In icewm, jwm, or ratpoison.

In icewm:

    #Sound
    key "Ctrl+Down"      amixer -q set Master 9%-            # lower volume
    key "Ctrl+Up"        amixer -q set Master 9%+             # raise volume

Ctrl + Up/Down keys do the trick... that's it!

Later,

Thanks to all you guys (Terence, golinux, fmithred, et.al.) I followed your instructions to the letter, reinstalled Devuan, moved to Ceres and got openrc, kudos to the devs and you too. THANKS!

By the way, small typo: there is a quotation mark missing after the word 'other', no biggie...

Thank you guys. I finally did it.

Installed synaptic and uninstalled pulseaudio, pulseaudio-tools and pulseaudio-utils which in turn dragged a bunch of others. Went to the terminal and got my beloved alsamixer big_smile Happy camper! Sound is great.

I always do a minimal installation and never get any package with "pulse" in the name.

So do I, I use IceWM

I got 2 boxes, and installed Devuan on both, the 64 bit one with (XFS) and the 32 bit with (ext 4).
The 64 bit gave me Pulse audio by default, and the 32 bit, ALSA.

Now I can't get rid of pulseaudio. I DID NOT INSTALL PULSEAUDIO!!
