[SOLVED] Running Devuan on Linode / Akamai

I needed to run Devuan on Linode, which I hope will keep running as-is even after the Akamai acquisition...

So here is a simple set of scripts using and Ansible to create a "private image" (previously known as golden image) on Linode.

Running this one can add the choice of Devuan to the list of available distributions when creating a new virtual machine.

The only available version for now is Chimaera, but should be easy to change and extend with Daedalus or Beowulf. The image is created starting from the default Debian one provided by Linode, then dist-upgraded to Devuan using the Ansible playbook I've included.

Happy Hacking!
