Thank you! Sorry I missed that in man cal.

I know this seems awfully petty. The cal command (with no arguments) produces a calendar but today's date is not highlighted. This happens both in urxvt under X and from the console.

man cal says -h Turns off highlighting of today, but cal doesn't recognize -h:

% cal -h                                                                                                                                                            :(
Usage: cal [general options] [-jy] [[month] year]
       cal [general options] [-j] [-m month] [year]
       ncal -C [general options] [-jy] [[month] year]
       ncal -C [general options] [-j] [-m month] [year]
       ncal [general options] [-bhJjpwySM] [-H yyyy-mm-dd] [-s country_code] [-W number of days] [[month] year]
       ncal [general options] [-Jeo] [year]
General options: [-31] [-A months] [-B months] [-d yyyy-mm]

ncal does highlight today's date and -h does suppress it.

I am running chimaera and I installed it from the netinstall iso from 8/16. It is up-to-date. Just wondering if there is something else I should have installed.

Thanks!

Thank you. I have installed Devuan from the chimaera_4.0.beta-20210816_amd64_netinstall iso and so far it is working great for me. I plan to just stick with it. My sources.list just points to the chimaera repos.

Will it eventually just morph into the release by doing the updates?

Debian posts warnings about using testing with regard to security.

https://wiki.debian.org/Status/Testing

says "... If you want to have a secure (and stable) server you are strongly encouraged to stay with stable."

Would that apply to running Devuan 4 at this point in its development cycle?

Wow! Thank you so much for making that! Works perfect.

I wanted to try out devuan_ascii_2.1_amd64_desktop-live but I'm getting no wired network connection when booting from the stick.

When running artix:

% lspci -knn | grep -iA5 net
00:1f.6 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V [8086:15bc] (rev 10)
	DeviceName: Onboard - Ethernet
	Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. [MSI] Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V [1462:7b17]
	Kernel driver in use: e1000e
	Kernel modules: e1000e

and devuan:

% lspci -knn | grep -iA1 net
00:1f.6 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:15bc] (rev 10)
	Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. [MSI] Device [1462:7b17]

I realize I have fairly new hardware (late 2018). Is it possible to get network in this case?

Thank you both for your  replies. Installing 'elogind' and 'libpam-elogind' solved it.

Forgive me if this is inappropriate but I am trying out star kirk. I think I read it is really pretty much devuan.

I had switched from slim to lightdm and that worked without problem. I then purged both slim and lightdm and booted to the command prompt just fine, but X wouldn't start up by startx (I did create an appropriate ~/.xinitrc). Is there a description of how to do this somewhere that someone could point me to?
