Don't do that.

Use "rescue mode" from the Devuan ISO image instead:

I can't make much sense of the rest of the post though. Sorry.

Re: libinput error rescue and recovery mode

sudo fsck -p fails to fix with recovery mode, live iso and live iso rescue mode.

booting into grub rescue mode with shift key, init=/bin/bash, F10

not showing grub rescue menu, command line only in large font. rescue and rescue/enable=true not launching rescue menu.

rescue mode not detecting wlan0.

So the problem is not caused by filesystem corruption then. No surprise there.

A soname error would suggest a FrankenDevuan. Have you been mixing stable with testing/unstable?

The rescue/enable=true parameter only works in the live ISO and that would only detect wlan0 if you used a version which includes non-free firmware. Did you try that?

Using init=/bin/bash would not start any services so a lack of network would be expected in that case.

Re: libinput error rescue and recovery mode

mixing stable with newer kernels from sysnaptic, which get patch updates upgrades. no testing or rolling config

rescue/enable=true in live iso not lauching grub rescue graphical interface, launch command line grub

That could very well have broken your system, depending on the exact commands used. Please provide those commands.

I have no idea what this means, sorry. Can you not ask about this on a forum in your native language?
