[SOLVED] How to choose runit while installing? Which iso provides that?

I downloaded devuan xfce live iso, I wasn't presented to choose any init system. What iso provides that? Should I have to choose that 5 GB all in one iso?

I am sorry but still dont get it. I got devuan live iso and there is no such option, its all live install. Is it netinstall?

Only the netinstall provides an init choice during installation. The "live" disk just copies pre-configured files of a default install.  Then you can change init post-install,

To obtain a root shell use su -. Using just su will result in "command not found" messages.

This SOLVED it.
But on artix the packages were like this, for example openssh has openssh-runit package which triggers it running at boot. It is configured to not work like this in devuan,right?

In debian/devuan, if the package includes runit scripts, runit will use those instead of the sysvinit scripts. Only a few packages include the runit scripts - the gettys, openssh-server and maybe a few others. You can add runscripts from other sources. (salsa.debian.org, antix, more)

Here are two more discussions.
