FAI (Fully Automatic Installation) from debian to devuan

Hi
grepping the conf for active lines

 /etc/fai/apt/sources.list 

shows

3:deb http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye main contrib non-free
4:deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-security bullseye-security main contrib non-free
11:deb http://fai-project.org/download bullseye koeln

Should not point line 3 and 4 to deb.devuan.org to get a clean devuan install on the client?

cd /etc/fai/        
root@myhost /etc/fai (git)-[master] # grep -isr debian *
apt/sources.list:deb http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye main contrib non-free
apt/sources.list:deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-security bullseye-security main contrib non-free
apt/sources.list:#deb http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye-backports main contrib non-free
apt/sources.list:#deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-security bullseye-security main contrib non-free
grub.cfg:menuentry "        |        (c) Thomas Lange  lange@debian.org            |" {
grub.cfg:      if [ -f (hd0,gpt1)/efi/debian/grub.cfg ]; then
grub.cfg:           configfile (hd0,gpt1)/efi/debian/grub.cfg
grub.cfg:      elif [ -f (hd1,gpt1)/efi/debian/grub.cfg ]; then
grub.cfg:           configfile (hd1,gpt1)/efi/debian/grub.cfg
grub.cfg.autodiscover:menuentry "        |        (c) Thomas Lange  lange@debian.org            |" --unrestricted {
grub.cfg.autodiscover:      if [ -f (hd0,gpt1)/efi/debian/grub.cfg ]; then
grub.cfg.autodiscover:           configfile (hd0,gpt1)/efi/debian/grub.cfg
grub.cfg.autodiscover:      elif [ -f (hd1,gpt1)/efi/debian/grub.cfg ]; then
grub.cfg.autodiscover:           configfile (hd1,gpt1)/efi/debian/grub.cfg
NFSROOT:PACKAGES install-norec DEBIAN_9
NFSROOT:PACKAGES install-norec DEBIAN_10
NFSROOT:PACKAGES install-norec DEBIAN_11 DEBIAN_

I feel there is some need for adaption. Please comment.

Re: FAI (Fully Automatic Installation) from debian to devuan

Are you able to change these lines at all?

Which suite of Devuan do you wish to install? I presume Bullseye's Devuan counterpart,Chimaera?

if so, this is the line you need:
deb https://pkgmaster.devuan.org/merged chimaera main contrib non-free
deb https://pkgmaster.devuan.org/merged chimaera-security main contrib non-free


systemd?  more like systemdung

Re: FAI (Fully Automatic Installation) from debian to devuan

i think, the trick is to modify
/usr/share/doc/fai-doc/examples/simple/basefiles/mk-basefile
and to include devuan amongst the other distros.
probably needs a contact to upstream

merry Christmas
