Installing openmediavault on top of devuan

Is it possible? It's quite possible to install omv on top of freshly installed debian. Can I do it with devuan?

Haven't tried it but their colllectd .deb has a sysvinit script as well as a systemd unit file so it looks promising.

Why don't you experiment in a disposable VM and report back?

Didn't work. It gave this output:

requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable

The following information may help to resolve the situation:

I've looked at porting OMV to Devuan a couple times, but the author of OMV has tied the majority of his code directly to systemd behavior.
It will require a fork and a lot of unwinding of hardcoded systemd stuff to get it going.
