Refracta Chimaera 64bit iso (Solved for me Hope this thread helps)

Found here: https://get.refracta.org/files/experime … 5_2006.iso

Tested this iso running on an old HP Pavillion dv6000

Had to install libmtp-runtime and crda.  Lingering issue is when booting I get "Configuring network interfaces ifup waiting for lock on /run//network/instate.eth0 - taking ages to boot

Referenced here:  https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … bug=892229

Is there a fix for this bug??

Otherwise this is a sweet system - Looking at using this longterm.

Re: Refracta Chimaera 64bit iso (Solved for me Hope this thread helps)

To get rid of the network delay on boot, edit /etc/network/interfaces and change 'allow hotplug' to either 'auto' or 'manual', or else you could apply the changes to /etc/init.d/networking as described here:
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=15493#p15493

I don't know about that old bug report for 4.15 kernel. Someone else was having problems with the 5.6 backports kernel, maybe related:
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=3621

I added crda and wireless-regdb to that system and previously added ca-certificates. I'll upload a newer iso soon. (I almost deleted it yesterday and then changed my mind!)

Updated iso:
snapshot_chimaera_01-20200702_1212.iso
https://get.refracta.org/files/experimental/

This one is bigger because it has both 5.6 and 5.7 kernels (and headers).
It boots 5.7 by default. To boot 5.6 you need to press TAB or e to edit the boot command. Change vmlinuz and initrd.img to vmlinuz.1 and initrd.img.1

Also added crda, wireless-regdb, ca-certificates, firefox-esr.

Thank you Fsmithred for prompt reply and for Refracta and the work you do for Devuan.

P.S. Problem with waiting for eth0 waiting resolved by changing to auto in /etc/network/interfaces
