Miyo outside of the devuan community is starting to get quite a following and what I have read has only been positive - thanks Miyo for your work.

Nice to see back in the saddle.  don't let anything kill your passion.:)

"I think your objections should be considered but I don't agree that OpenBSD is completely free of these things either. It's quite easy to install most of what you mentioned in OpenBSD as well. I do agree that Chromium is awful, I don't use it either. I don't like Firefox much either, I'm going to work on repackaging iceweasel-hardened and icedove-hardened for Devuan from Parabola since they are lightweight and hardened which is rather nice,."

That would be awesome I'm using version 45 of GNUIcecat which still uses alsa so an up to date browser like that would be cool.

Well I can only give you the example of Puppy Linux where Barry Kauler has copy righted the name of Puppy Linux example but you are free of course to use Puppy to remaster as you please,  If you do a remaster and it is a pupplet (not an official release) you can't go calling it Puppy Linux instead calling something pup instead or another name.

My point is this protect the name Miyo and as for harm caused by using it you have covered yourself by saying "MiyoLinux comes with no warranty and I'm not responsible for any issues caused by using this software"

I would also put damage in there as well.

So protect the name so no-one can steal it and no one can go you for using the name Miyo Linux when you have used it first,

Its name Pottering and said person bought us Pulseaudio and Systemd which is a problem on the desktop.  In my book invading viruses in the Linux Ecosystem.

Running your lovely Awesome version absolutlely lovely.

#10 Re: Devuan Derivatives » Announcement Regarding MiyoLinux » 2019-03-11 08:04:18

Hi Miyo,

I am very sorry to hear about your decision to stop Miyo Linux - it was a beautiful distro to use when I used it. 

I want to wish the best for the future and hope you stick around the forums.

Loving the awesome 32bit version - easily the most usable version of awesome I have used.

Machine: Dell Inspiron 6400.

First up thank you for this nice little distro.  I am running this on a Dell D620.

Only issue I struck was getting my Iwl3945 to  work and I could not mount usb flash drives.  Finally figured how to do that from command line and was able to install the firmware from that - other than that very nice will probably be a keeper. :

#18 Re: Off-topic » Arguments against systemd » 2017-10-08 10:17:45

Joshua - you seemed very enthusiastic about the creation of your distro ideas - I think you should focus on those goals and make something truely special to be enjoyed and used by all who download and check it out.

#19 Re: Off-topic » Arguments against systemd » 2017-10-08 10:15:01

Hi Joshua,

I found your posts interesting about systemd.  However I'm like a lot of people who are anti-systemd - kind of sick of hearing about it.  Especially as I and others have seen its destructive effect on Linux.

I would rather focus on enjoying Devuan and its derivatives and testing and giving feedback where it is needed.

I have come from Puppy Linux namely the Murga Forums and there was a lot infighting and trolling there and its my sincere hope this forum remains a relativly peaceful environment where creativity can flow.

#20 Re: Devuan Derivatives » Early doors: King-Pigeon series and friends [AKA Modular Linux] » 2017-10-06 08:52:35

JoshuaFlynn]King-Pigeon ASCII upgrade has a couple of issues (seems to be with the dist-upgrade process? Unclear):

There's no LXDE shutdown or reboot option (terminal also doesn't acknowledge shutdown or reboot as commands.) [edit: using VM to send a shutdown signal results in nothing happening. Does the dist-upgrade pull across all appropriate options, or has this been disabled due to systemd madness?]:

Same issue with my ASCII Refracta install using nox 9 version - have to logout and shutdown from lightdm.

#21 Re: Documentation » HOWTO: My Devuan Installation (minimal netinstall) » 2017-10-06 08:46:03

Yes I use this method either Refracta 9 nox or Devuan One net install on my T42 Thinkpad - I use forcepae option booted from unetbootin.  Install and install basic LXDE core and reboot.  Install non-pae kernel that machine requires and make a snapshot.

#24 Re: Devuan Derivatives » Early doors: King-Pigeon series and friends [AKA Modular Linux] » 2017-10-01 10:06:54

Interested in your 32bit version any idea of a release date?  Your idea of pidgeonising a distro is a bit like Barry Kauler's idea of Puppyfying ubuntu/Debian a few years ago.  Mmmm come to think of it your ideas of modulism sound very Puppy Linuxish.
