Someone had a how make devuan which specific packages?

Hi there, Someone had a how make devuan which specific packages? is not directly a derivate from Devuan. i want to learn how make for example

Devuan Live + Installer + The packages i need for personal use.

Because i am from venezuela, and the internet conection for download packages is really slow and in to many cases, i just had a usb stick of 1 GB and for that reason is not practical for me just download the DVD ISO Image of Disc 1 of Devuan installation.

For me are better just download the packages i need.

Someone had a tutorial for make this?

If you want packages personally for your aims you can use checkinstall+fakeroot to build them: https://debian-administration.org/artic … eckinstall

This is the easiest way.

Looks like you need a local mirror of Devuan repository. It will be about 150-170Gb for AMD64+i386 architectures. If you will find or organize local LUG (Linux User Group) it will be possible to make a local infrastructure for that.

upd.

There is also AppImage package format. you can consider it for desktop apps. It doesn't require package manager at all. Just download and run an application.

Ok, i try to convience a friend to mount a local mirror for country because he work on ministry of technology.

The problem with AppImage, is the tutorials are just for Ubuntu exclusivity and their packages, not exist any anothers explanations, for example "Generic How-To" or something similar for any distribution, because i try to make my own packages few years ago, using my another distro "Slackware64 14.2" but the software need packages just appears on ubuntu.

Maybe refracta-snapshot and refracta-installer could help you here? Not the devuan installer but still an easy way to make an iso with all the personal packages you want in it.

It seems you need the following manual: https://wiki.debian.org/DebianCustomCD

Since tools for Devuan are same you can try to make a custom iso.

I didn't see anything ubuntu-specific in official AppImage manual.

Besides, there are a lot of pre-built appimages:

https://bintray.com/probono/AppImages
https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageKit/wiki/appimages

Hi,

Devuan has its own devuan-sdk:

  https://git.devuan.org/sdk

which is a tool to create different kinds of Devuan-based images. In your case, you can create a live image by using live-sdk. It comes with two pre-defined "blends" (desktop-live and minimal-live). It's an easy and extremely customisable way of getting your own live Devuan derivative.
