PeppermintOS Devuan arm64 possible testing.

Hello forum from Peppermint OS world,

It has been a minute since I have posted over here. Since we released our Devuan spins we have gotten so much positive feedback, particularity in the realm of speed and choice options.
Much love to Devuan and it's community for what you do. I personally use all the Pep Devuan spins as I am not a real big sysd fan LOL

This just keeps getting more fun.... While we were prepping for bookworm and daedalus this year, MrReplicant contacted us, about a Devuan arm64 spin.   

With his help this has resulted in some, ISOs being compiled and tested. Very interesting to say the least...  to see a peppermint look and feel on that.
I have tested them in a qemu, runs no problem

But MrReplicant suggested possibly posting here to see if anyone in this community would be interested in testing the Pep Devuan arm64 spin  if you have the hardware available.

If you are let me know I will make sure to post the testing links here

Thank you! All for what  you do.

I'd be interested in trying an ARM release on my Raspberry Pi 4. smile

Just be aware, this is a full-fledged live ISO, one of few in existence for this architecture.. You'll need the UEFI firmware from the link below in order to use it. I've tested earlier versions on my own Pi, so I know it works. If you need help, let me know!

I, also, am willing to give it a 'spin'.  wink

Re: PeppermintOS Devuan arm64 possible testing.

Is it worth trying Peppermint on a BananaPi M5?

Does it have any way to use UEFI? Via u-boot or otherwise? As of right now it's an ISO, nothing as of yet to migrate existing systems to PepOS

Then I don't see why not! Contact us on our Matrix chat and we will work on getting you a copy of the latest working ISO, then you can try to use U-boot's UEFI implementation and we can work from there.

Thank you. Is it possible to show me a download link here, as I am not active in Matrix.
