I do a  Teeworlds lanparty every thursday and friday at school. +10 i386 evos. I used lubuntu now migrated to Devuan.  Installed and demonstrated at the Devuan conference, thanks to Refracta made by Greg.
Teeworlds is a no-gore mulitiplayer shooter. It is opensource (C++) with easy configurable skin and map files.

There 50+ live servers to be found.
If you use old hardware - install glxgears to check if your graphics card it up to it.

It's just that I recently took the red pill by starting up Wireshark on my Mint 18 desktop.
I was puzzled (shocked) bij al the traffic from and to my machine. Even my fritzbox internetrouter,delivered by a trusted provider in the Netherlands, is making contact with its maker in Germany.,
The idea of being in control brought me to Devuan and Dowse.

That does not mean  I want to prevent anyone to take the blue pill when shopping :-)

I'm prepping my old laptops with devuan and want to optimize ifirefox for playing back youtube videos.
There are several pluggins and addons for firefox available but I do not know which one are the best to use form a  os/foss/privacy perspective.
I was surprised when I tried to install flash-non free that I got all these options for  not-sharing personal information. So from the players/add ons/plugins personal information is sent to other parties.
Yes - I will try out Dowse soon on my system.
Thanks for all the good work to the Devuan Team.

Problem is that devuan does not have a virtual machine in its repository, Then I have to run a virtual machine in Debian.
Another problem - to compile node.js GCC 4.9.4 or higher is needed. The latest version in the devuan repository is 4.9.2.
I remember making my own packages in Slackware a long time ago, but this process with devuan is getting complicated.

node.js still not working:
followed this procedure:

cd ~
tar -xzf node-v6.2.1-linux-armv6l.tar.gz
node-v6.2.1-linux-armv6l/bin/node -v

node is unpacked but not executable somehow.
I will to try it to build it on the raspberry itself (And take the kids out surfing in the meanwhile) … -platforms

So far I got this lead from a friend: … spberry-pi

I did no get it working yet. Tomorrow I will start with a clean image.

And I will try out dowse on a pi3. I saw a template of dowse in node red somewhere in a presentation.

Got this response when i tried

sudo curl -sL | sudo -E bash -

## You appear to be running on ARMv6 hardware. Unfortunately this is not currently supported by the NodeSource Linux distributions. Please use the 'linux-armv6l' binary tarballs available directly from for Node.js v4 and later.

Using binairy tarballs, or building it myself...

I think npm is old. There are some workarounds to be found but they refer to deb packages, which involve systemd. I can try them out if they run on devuan.
Yes node-red i preinstalled on the new raspbian distributions.

I want to install node-red on devuan.
I got this error wen after installing npm

module.exports.aliases = Object.assign({}, shorthands, affordances)
TypeError: Object function Object() { [native code] } has no method 'assign'
    at Object.<anonymous> (/usr/local/lib/node_modules/npm/lib/config/cmd-list.js:113:33)

It is a problem that also occurs on debian systems and seems related to an old npm package.

Any idea's?
BTW I got node-red running on devuan amd64
