Good to see ACTUAL positive press/reviews

Yet I would caution ANYONE to rely or trust

*   Government
*   Corporations
*   Mainstream
*  " News " / "media"
*  Central banks

#2 Re: Installation » Ansible role to migrate Debian to Devuan » 2022-06-17 22:43:57

Sounds Awesome

Thanks for your efforts

Does VPS/cohost box's need specialised drivers to work with Devuan
or would this work with most VPS providers ?

Might be a good idea to host based scripts not on ((( GITHUB )))
but something more self hosted/based/free speech supported

#3 Re: ARM Builds » Inquiriing, about router usage, » 2022-06-17 06:33:53


For an Router you could get

OpenWRT device
Linksys WRT54g

DIY Pfsense Router
DIY BSD router

I dont recommend ANYONE using a laptop or tabet
to share and route and do firewall stuff for a connection

I would love to see BSD and Devuan included in more networking, server stuff and router distros

ARM is still royality fee based and closed source

if you wanted a pro freedom device, check out RISC V

#4 Re: Devuan Derivatives » We are making progress » 2022-06-17 06:30:52

Great to see more distros willing to WALK AWAY from

* International Corporations
* Central Banking Cartels
* VC funding
* Anti Nation
* Anti Merit
* Anti Straight Males
* Soyd/Dbus/policykit
* Python + Dotnet + Javascript
* Censorship
* Pandering to International Authoritarianism/weak/emotional

Over to instead
* based distros,
* based communities
* people willing to put  experience, hard work, talent, drive and pride ins ones worth/effort/hard work

Instead of pandering to the
weak, always offended and those which pull down and subvert an community/group instead of aiding success
which are never happy until everyone is purged and they have completely taken over your thing/project/group/etc

I can see Linux spliter into 2 groups

Closed Source

Indie/Small/crowd/ground funded
No soyd,dbus, wayland,pulseaudio
Free Speech
Based Communties
hard work
Small business

Thanks for the good reply

You get a Kangaroo Thumbs up Approval

#6 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » How reduce starting Xorg time? » 2022-06-14 03:50:34

Im amazed any system that old still works

I would replace
and replace thermal paste

Also check all FANS to be working

Replace Celey or i3 with an Xeon if you can source it from Aliexpress for that old socket type

Might be worth UPGRADING to an X58 or X79
instead of a system that old - Socket 478/771/775

#7 Re: Off-topic » Linux Hardening Guide » 2022-06-14 03:48:03

Step 1 - Self Host, dont use ((( GITHUB ))) or corporatoins

#8 Re: Devuan Derivatives » GNUinOS - Libre » 2022-06-12 04:41:27


Is it possible to run commands or program that converts Dev1 into Gnuinos
without a complete reinstall

is the difference between dev1 and Gnuinos just the kernal being libre
or other stuff needed to change ?

#9 Re: Other Issues » Can we run .Appimage out of the box ? » 2022-06-12 04:38:13

99% of appimages work with Dev1 from my experience

SMplayer appimage does NOT work thou

Appimages that do work
- LibreWolf - browser
- Delta chat - messager
- leafpad - text editor
- Libre office - Office Suite
- Ungoogled chromium - browser
- Shortcut - video editor

#11 Re: Installation » Would it be possible please to add 'CoreCtrl' to the repo ? » 2022-06-06 22:08:20

Thanks for the deb link
It failed to install

It seems this is just too bloated with QT and various extra crap

#12 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » "extremely serious problems" with Gnome 42 » 2022-06-06 08:09:13

Found the problem
* Gnome
* Freedesktop
* Soyd/Dbus/policykit

Based Linux users are using XFCE classic

Would it be possible please to add


Into the repo

I followed the build info on gitlab , yet it failed

Is it possible to remove all the bad stuff,
replace whats needed and
get it going with Dev1 ?

It doesnt have a deb or portable runable install
or appimage

Thanks in advance

Build issues mentioned here … in_debian/

#15 Re: Other Issues » Alsa Default issues - Audiobox USB + mobo Onboard + AMD HDMI » 2022-06-04 06:56:48

I found these programs work with ALSA only

*   LibreWolf - Web browser
*   SMPLAYER - Video player
*   Shortcut - Video editor
*   Mumble - VOIP gaming mic chat software

*   OpenRA - Game (non steam)
*   ATS/ETS - Game (steam)

#16 Re: Other Issues » Alsa Default issues - Audiobox USB + mobo Onboard + AMD HDMI » 2022-06-04 04:47:34

Thanks for the response

Ive disabled onboard audio in the BIOS

Ive used that tip to remove HDMI audio

It now has no option but to default to Audiobox USB

I ended up installing {{{ PULSEAUDIO}}

I'm doing some benchmarks and tests

and ill look into removing pulse again

{{{ THEY }}} don't make it easy to remove the subversion corporation creep bloat from Linux

All the best
have a great weekend all

#17 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » What games do you play on Devuan?? » 2022-06-03 22:55:39


Ill confirm that OpenRA and the mods work with Dev1

OpenRA_CombinedArms-0.72-x86_64.AppImage works on Dev1 with Windows scrubs
you might need to port forward to host a game

Also limiting it to 75fps helps and turning off the background menu animations
It does not require steam , works on LAN , works on appimage on Linux

#18 Re: Off-topic » Attention! MESA No more OpenGL Drivers Support for i915 » 2022-06-03 22:39:10


How much 'fixing' does an old driver really need besides removing
DRM, bad language support (Javascript/python/dotnet/etc), closed source crap

Also why cant users download a Linux driver as a file
eg   Hardware_model.driver
and install it from GUI/CLI without everything throw into the kernel including the kitchen sink

Why cant we have a server someplace to store drivers that have been extracted from mainline kernel
that people may need and can access at their own choice

#19 Re: Off-topic » [SOLVED] New Github repo: Protect Children From Violence » 2022-06-03 07:05:44


If you want to protect
*   Disabled/Retarded
*   Mentally ill
*   Old
*   Females
*   Chillins
*   Communities

Then why are you using {{{ GITHUB }}}

I recommend avoiding International Corporations
that dont resprect

*   Freedom of Speech
*   Truth
*   Right to Repair

and have a known shady past and ties to untrustworthy groups/people/organisations

Having a dedicated
*   Website
*   Email
*   Mailing list
*   and self hosted wiki/git
Would be recommended


Is it your job to protect
*   Chillins
*   Wamans
*   Community
*   Others

or is it the states

or is it
*   The Community
*   The Family
*   The Parents
*   Our selfs


Can you have Responsibilities with NO AUTHORITY


Governments typically use force, lies and cohesion to pass 'laws' which remove freedoms, rights and abilities
while they are often the ones who are
*   Ill-moral
*   Corrupt
*   Violent
*   Blackmailed
*   Evil
*   Wrong
*   bought/paid for/puppets


Whats your solution to keeping people "SAFE"
*  Censorship
*  Removing 'bad' infomration'
*  Removing the ablity for self defense
*  Removing men from the family
*  Telling men they are wrong and bigots
*  Breaking up homes, family and community

Also how are you going to enforce this new 'safey'
*  at the end of a GUN in your hands or
*   the STATE using a gun via armed order enforcers ?

Also what happens when
kids or women/mothers lie about wrong doing

Are you and others FINALLY willing to hold kids and women accountable for false claims
and stuffing over men and fathers lives ?

#21 Re: Other Issues » [SOLVED] ungoogled-chromium, Iridium, or LibreWolf, please » 2022-06-03 06:36:41


I recommend
*  using Noscript + ublock origin
*  3rd party cookies disabled

*  LibreWolf instead of Default Firefox
*  Ungoogled Chromium instead of Brave/Default Chrome

* Librewolf appimage works on Dev1
   ( LibreWolf_100.0.2.1.x86_64.AppImage )

* Ungoogled chromium appimage works on Dev1
  ( ungoogled-chromium_91.0.4472.164-1.1.AppImage )

#22 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » [SOLVED] libreoffice fails to launch in Devuan 4.0 » 2022-05-08 14:27:12


LibreOffice Appimage works with Dev1

Also if you need a word processor and spreadsheet
You could always install Abiword and Gnumeric
or just type something up in text editor or mark down editor

I really like appimage
I have a folder for them all

I myself control when it updates or not
I can revert back to a older build if needed most of the time (LibreWolf changes the profile so you cant revert)


Anyone else using GhostWriter for Markdown editing ?
Its also got a Appimage

#23 Re: Documentation » [HOW TO] Compiling Lagrange on Devuan » 2022-04-16 08:25:47

#24 Re: Off-topic » Is wayland the new systemd ? » 2022-04-16 04:13:27

It really seems that { Wayland } and {pipewire} are methods to remove any trace of old systems - Alsa/X/etc

I ran pipewire for a bit of Fedora for a while
they changed the back end for the media session
to their sh1t which I had to undo … liebrownau

This is a DELBATE move by { THEM } to put the final centralisation and dependency all over Linux

Heck the Kernal seems to be heading towards so much bloat and pre included shovelwere ,
it might aswell be its own OS soon

What would stop them putting a SERVICE or program that talks to SOYD, KERNEL or SNAP Store
that checks if you have enough good boy social points and if you don't, you cant boot up ?

The creep never ends, it always gets worse
because people typically never have the strength, moral conviction or balls to say NO
and get rid of this infection from changing stuff ever again

I'm surprised that {Fedora} , {ubuntu} and various other distros
don't enforce online cloud accounts with gnome ui's
to log in like { Windows 8/10/11} enforcers

#25 Re: Off-topic » Why don't we just fork systemd and remove unneccessary bloat? » 2022-04-16 04:06:02


This is what I don't understand

Why cant the community fork or pull soyd/dbus/avachi from opensource programs?

Why cant we fork stuff like

without soyd/bloat/centralisation/etc  ?

Or do what the International Subversives do
* join a project
* inject their changes
* kick out the original group
* take over the project

Even if the community has to res a bunch of old abandoned stuff like leafpad and other stuff
that's been ditched by { THEM }

Does the soydless community even have a plan of action to go ahead ?
