Hi mknoop,
Have you run 'mysql_secure_installation' before trying to launch the service?
Mariadb works flawlessly on my Devuan Daedalus machines.

On my machines, I always disable 'Secure Boot' before installing a Linux Distro. Is it the reason why it failed for you?

Thank you very much for Devan Daedalus DVD installer ISO's availability. smile
My laptops really enjoyed 'Daedalus' and also 'dwm'. Simplicity and speed !!!

#4 Re: Installation » Can you unravel where this went wrong? » 2022-07-22 09:48:00

Devuan is the most "significant" non-systemd distro I hadn't tried, so I was curious. I thought it would be easier to install than the ones I'm used to, if anything. But I was wrong.

Fantastic !!!

#5 Re: Devuan » Experiences with Ceres? » 2022-07-05 08:10:03

Almost the same as xinomilo. I use 'Daedalus' as my daily driver since march this year, replacing Debian Sid, on 4 different machines.
Daedalus is OK for me, with apt pinning (a preferences file) and a good knowledge of APT.
I'm looking for the june 2022 ISO DVD of Daedalus, I can't find it on the download page ???

Hi golinux,
"...We are mulling over possible options to get HP's attention."
Devuan would be the best Linux distro for a 'developer' laptop. It would be much better than their PopOs Gnome thing  ;o)

#7 Re: News & Announcements » Linux Pro Magazine revisits Devuan » 2022-06-23 08:17:09

Thank you very much for the PDF golinux!

Hi czeekaj,
have you tried the following:
sudo rfkill unblock all
and reboot?
Sometimes missing firmware are found in firmware-linux-nonfree or firmware-misc-nonfree.

#9 Re: Other Issues » Daedalus Bluetooth problem... » 2022-04-27 13:31:28

Updated today : bluez 5.64-2. No more issues (at least for mice and keyboards).
Daedalus looks like being mature now, and became my preferred distro (Xfce - sysvinit).
Thank you for 'init freedom' smile

#10 Re: Other Issues » Daedalus Bluetooth problem... » 2022-04-08 16:38:03

bluez 5.64-1 is now available in Devuan unstable.

~$ apt-cache policy bluez
bluez:
  Installé : 5.64-1
  Candidat : 5.64-1
 Table de version :
 *** 5.64-1 100
        -10 [url]http://deb.devuan.org/merged[/url] unstable/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     5.62-2 900

It works fine at least for mice and keyboards.
Thanks for init freedom wink

#12 Re: Other Issues » [SOLVED] Vim theme doesn't work when vimrc is there! » 2022-04-07 17:17:23

Well, I can't help you more because I run Daedalus and, for me, Vim works flawlessly. Maybe somebody else here will help.

#13 Re: Other Issues » [SOLVED] Vim theme doesn't work when vimrc is there! » 2022-04-07 14:11:54

Hi sudo,
What you call "the vimrc file" should be .vimrc ( dot vimrc).
Then, normally it should work.
Hope it helps.

#15 Re: Other Issues » Daedalus Bluetooth problem... » 2022-03-31 15:48:47

Hi dzz,
As you said, Chimaera's bluez version 5.55 is OK.
I'm trying Exe Linux on a VM because I do not know TDE smile

#16 Re: Other Issues » Daedalus Bluetooth problem... » 2022-03-28 09:20:05

@GlennW: Devuan Chimaera has version 5.55 of the bluez package and Bluetooth was working normally on Chimaera. Is it OK with your headset?
My concern was about 2 different brands of mice: Lenovo Bluetooth mouse and Xiao Mi mouse. I do not use other BT devices.

#17 Re: Other Issues » Daedalus Bluetooth problem... » 2022-03-26 10:22:01

Last build with arguments --disable-systemd and --disable-udev
No dependency on systemd and udev!

I had to install 2 include files to compile the binary :
sudo apt install libical-dev libreadline-dev

Then : ./configure --disable-systemd --disable-udev
Then : make

#18 Re: Other Issues » Daedalus Bluetooth problem... » 2022-03-26 09:08:39

Hi,

In my last message about the bluetooth bug in Daedalus, I only found a workaround to make bluetooth work on my Devuan Daedalus installs.

I noticed that some Linux distributions have the new version of the bluetooth stack (5.64), for example OpenSuse 'TumbleWeed', unfortunately with a dependency to systemd. So I looked for the 'official' source code of the latest version (5.64) and found it there : http://www.bluez.org/

Release of BlueZ 5.64
19th March 2022, 06:18 am by Tedd Ho-Jeong An

This is another release mostly with the bug fixes on HOG, GATT, A2DP, Media, AVDTP, AVRCP, and scanning failure. Also, this release includes a fix for building with old glibc (< 2.25), and other minor issues found with the static code analyzing tool. ISO packet support is added to the emulator as a part of LE Audio development.

Source code from : http://www.bluez.org/
Tarball : http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/bluetoo … .64.tar.xz

I downloaded the tarball and examined its 'autotools' scripts and configuration files.
Looking at the source code from the tarball in the (autotools) configure.ac file I saw the possibility to get rid the dependency to systemd with the '--disable-systemd' argument to pass to ./configure, so I decided to try to compile the source code.

I had to install 3 include files to compile the binary :
sudo apt install libudev-dev libical-dev libreadline-dev

Then : ./configure --disable-systemd
Then : make

In the src dir, the 'bluetoothd' daemon is built.
In the obexd/src dir, the 'obexd' daemon is built.

obexd => OBEX(OBject EXchange) daemon. OBEX is communication protocol to facilitate the exchange of the binary object between the devices.

I moved the two daemons to the /usr/libexec/ after renaming the old files.

I rebooted my Devuan 'Daedalus' ThinkPad laptop and ;o)

I think it is possible to integrate these two binaries and maybe build a fully working up to date package for Devuan Daedalus. I'd like to contact someone of the Devuan programmers to do this.

Within a few days, I'll know if the new daemons are bugs free and investigate a bit more...

Thank you for 'init freedom' : )

Hi fsmithred,
Thanks for your reply.
I have several computers and I compared Devuan testing installs with Debian testing ones.
The same bluez package works flawlessly on my Debian testing desktops and laptops. It has the same size as the bluez package from Daedalus
How can one runs fine and the other not?
Anyway the bluez package from Chimaera (versions 5.65) works fine here and it will not stop me to migrate to Devuan smile

Hi,

What I wrote previously :
I first installed Chimaera and Daedalus (older ISO) on qemu/kvm virtual machines, easy stuff and no problems!
Then I installed Daedalus on two laptops - a ThinkPad x270 and a ThinkPad 13 2nd gen.
It's a preview and I had some difficulties with partitioning and the network while installing but finally succeeded.
Once installed, Daedalus runs perfectly except for the bluetoothd/bluez service. From time to time it stops and I have to restart the service. The mouse I use works flawlessly with Debian testing, so I believe there's something wrong with Daedalus Bluetooth implementation. For example, when I put my mouse off the Bluetooth service stops.
I've been using Debian testing for years on my computers (DE=Xfce) and Debian stable for my Web server and I intend to switch to Devuan. I'll install Devuan on other desktops and laptops, old and new.
For now I use my 13" ThinkPad with Daedalus installed and except for the Blutooth (5.62) problem I'm very happy with Daedalus.
Thank you for 'init freedom'!

I found an immediate solution for the bluetoothd problem that I found while enjoying Devuan Daedalus on two laptops.
I extracted the bluetoothd daemon executable file from Chimaera's bluez_5.55-3.1_amd64.deb package and put it in /usr/libexec/, replacing the 5.62 version.
And it works now.o I believe that Daedalus bluetoothd version 5.62 maybe needs to be debugged and/or repaired.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for 'init freedom' smile

Thank you, Head_on_a_Stick and Marjorie.
I'm a long time Debian "testing" user and I discovered Devuan 'Daedalus' a few days ago - what a suprise! it makes me so happy ;o;)
Your tips about nftables on Devuan helped me a lot.
