I get an error opening the file in gimp and inscape

At gimp he tells me this:

Error domain 1 code 76 on line 54 column 8 of file:///home/zuzen/devuan/logo: Opening and ending tag mismatch: meta line 0 and head

you could send me another version.

I am enrolled in a course of silkscreen printing and would like to make a devuan T-shirt with the motto in my language.

It is possible that the person who has the original logo can give it to me to make the t-shirt


#3 Installation » Someone created an instance on with a devuan? » 2020-01-29 08:58:18

Replies: 1


I have hired an instance in development for 3€ per month in

But I only had a choice of debian (there's more OS) buster (need mailman3)

It bothers me a lot to use debian. I've asked them to create a standard image with devuan. I've been told to create it myself. with build image

I suppose "standard" is one image, but I'm not clear on this.

Did someone do this?

It would help to have a reference, I don't get along with virtual ones. 8={ I don't quite understand how an instance in scaleway works. There's a lot of docu but I don't really understand it.

It's an interesting solution that can be easily scaled.

I need a deb file from the ceres pool.

linux-image-5.4.0-2-amd64 or higher

I can't find the wax pool.

Where is it? How do I get that file?

I happen to have bought an asus ux333fa and have a lot of driver and module problems. They say that kernel version 5.4 solves it.

Any ideas

#7 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » What games do you play on Devuan?? » 2019-10-12 09:45:44

the most comfortable thing is if you use synaptic is to choose game metapackages.

The metapackages are sorted by game types, which guides you a bit about what you want to play.

You have thousands. supertux this death hooks a lot is an 2D game

You try games, the ones you don't like, uninstall them.

In the case of amarok we depend on debian kde team?

this in sid for powerpcspe architecture, not even for amd64

If they put him in the buster backport, do we too?

Amarok is the program I use, it is very good. And I'm burned

Forgive me for being such a jerk.

#9 Re: Installation » It is possible to install devuan on the new laptop pinebook pro ??? » 2019-10-10 18:21:51

I noticed that in debian there is an installation media for arm64.  Y se usa con el pinebook pro

But I only see media in devuan for amd64 and i86

One could raise the responsible for ARM of devuan create a medium for arm64 ???? or A image for pinebook pro

Otherwise the devuan ARM manager could help us install devuan on the pinebook pro ???

It bothers me a lot to use a debian, as I think everyone here.

pine64 is a project that I think connects perfectly with devuan's philosophy and thought. Perhaps it would be a good idea to pay attention to it. I guess everyone is overloaded.

I've been left out of the October shipment anyway. So I won't be able to have the pinebook pro until the end of November.

It's not something I need for today, I'm an advanced user, but here there's a lot of level. A little help would be very welcome.



P.S. I certainly don't know if I'm talking nonsense and this has nothing to do with debuan, my apologies in that case.

#10 Installation » There is a bug in beowulf's /etc/profile file » 2019-10-08 12:47:09

Replies: 1

There are two lines that are inverted and modify the root path

It's like this:

if [ "`id -u`" -eq 0 ]; then
export PATH

It should be like this:

if [ `id -u`" -eq 0 ]; then
export PATH

you can check it simply by trying a user@machine# reboot

Change order the lines and resolved

I'm waiting for pine64's response on the M2 disk adapter.

I've asked them if they can mount it for me, or if I have to.

And if I have to do it I need the demoulding manual.

And I also asked about the keyboard language.

They haven't told me anything.

But I think we can try to get it up and running.

I hope to have the collaboration of the mantainer of arm64

#12 Re: Installation » It is possible to install devuan on the new laptop pinebook pro ??? » 2019-09-27 09:41:10

if that's what I've seen.

But still the person in charge of arm64 comes up with a way to start.

The device I find very attractive is a low cost. And more than enough to go on a trip. It has an adapter to puncture an M2 disk. That makes it completely usable.

You can put the system in the 64 GB memory and put the home in the M2.

Another thing is the performance. but the distributions that appear use XFCE which is our default option.

What does our ARM64 maintainer say about this ?????

a greeting

NOTE: Until October, you don't know when they won't start selling it.

I don't have the level to get involved with an architecture but I do have the level to help.

These are the kind of projects I think I should be involved in.

If this can be used. But I would gladly spend the $200 if I have support and a work group is set up.

know it's a bit silly to say this, but you're anxious. The group of developers has to have an idea of where things are going............ I don't ask in days, with weeks you can see me.

It is possible to install devuan on the new laptop pinebook pro ???


You can see it here, it's the people who are making the linux mobile.

For the previous version there are a few distributions.

It looks like the place where devuan should be.

I think your principles are comparable. hardware <-> devuan

The list is here … re_Release

Thank you.


#15 Installation » I can't install beowulf using mini.iso » 2019-07-22 14:13:11

I can't install beowulf using mini.iso

I install it and in the reboot it jumps the console of grub.

I have tried it to install with the safe mode of the uefi and without it. In both cases the same problem.

I have to read but the grub console does not accept me device names that I initially recognize with a ls.

Someone has installed using the mini.iso ?????? this version: … t/mini.iso

I think it's very strange what's happening to me, the grub is badly installed.


#16 Re: Installation » mini.iso 16-2-2019 BUG does not install on M2 disks » 2019-03-25 03:48:34


I found this post

but he means jessi.

How would it be for ascii ????

do you use the package reportbug or the package reportbug-ng?

And the mini_16-2-2019.iso is not a package. how do you report it?

On the same machine on a mechanical disk the mini.iso 16-2-2019 installs without problems.

In the case of installing on a disk M2 at the end of the process of installing programs ... when you start to clean with 97% of the process freezes. The light of activity of the disk remains blocked as if the disk were being used intensively.

How are bug's reported? Who do I have to warn about this bug?

Could you name the mini.iso with the date of publication? for example mini_16-2-2019.iso

There's some confusion, I was using a mini.iso from last year.

W: The repository " ascii-blackports Release" does not have a Publication file.

#20 Re: Installation » Devuan running very slow on Raspberry PI 3 b+ » 2018-12-18 21:20:32

That scandisk card is not the most appropriate to opt for performance

The best option is a SDXC I protocol U3 card with 100mb/s read and 90mb/s read.

Luckily they've come down a lot in price. A samnsung evo 64gb is a good choice and I think they are at about 18€.

The ones from amazon sell it here: … UTF8&psc=1

Note that the 32gb is NOT U3 protocol.

I'm working on a version of the raspi3 image we have because it's in balls. A normal user can't do anything with it.

With a desktop XFCE, libreoffice, etc. etc. goes very loose. Watch out, you have to keep in mind what a raspberry is and the very big limitations that tiesne. You need to be patient and wait for the programs to open.  If in firefox you open a lot of eyelashes is piled up and hung.

I use several cards, instable, testing and stable. as in devuan.

I'm going step by step. but you have to do everything by hand. I'm writing a HowTo at the same time to make the image we have usable.

I have tried an application of raspian raspi-config does not work at all for us, but THAT is something we NEED. I couldn't find the package in raspian's poll.  So I made an image of raspian uninstall the application and reinstall it.  And obviously the package was in /var/cache/apt


To try this not bad. You realize a GIANT lack that we have. So to speak somehow with "four clicks" you have configured the raspberry. I have used it in console and graphical environment.

What that application does to me, costs me a lot more than an hour.

When the HowTo is ready then the thing will be simpler but at hand.

For not having even this: task-console-productivity

In my opinion, it's like they say here "in the balls."

I would be happy to discuss this with the person in charge of compiling the image for RaspBerry pi 3 B+.

And I'm willing to do a beta tester to improve our image for RaspBerry pi 3 B+.
