Re: List of Devuan derivatives

Are there any new Devuan derivatives announced since last year?

Also, and more importantly - is there a one-liner description of what's the focus or speciality of each of these distros? Would be nice to see more than just a bunch of names.

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

@golinux: Ok, fair enough in principle, but some of those descriptions are vague to the point of near-uselessness. For example:

Refracta is a GNU/Linux distribution built with home users in mind. It provides a simple layout that will be comfortable for the majority of users.

home users also run home servers, so... not sure how they differ from non-home users. Plus, what does it mean, to build a distro with X people in mind? Do you write odes to these people in script comments? And "providing a simple layout" - what's a "layout" anyway? And does that mean it doesn't provide complex layouts? And doesn't Devuan itself "provide simple layouts"? ... None of this tells me what Refracta has or drops relative to Devuan. Maybe just different artwork, Desktop environment settings and icon arrangement?

Gnuinos is a libre spin of Devuan GNU/Linux using the Openbox window manager.

But Devuan has OpenBox, so what's the spin? That OpenBox is on the installation media rather than other DEs?

Star is a minimal distro, with a small selection of apps

Then how can it be based on Devuan, which has Debian's huge selection of apps? Or again, maybe it's a bootable image with some preinstalled apps?

etc.

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

Refracta was around long before Devuan and based on Debian.  The live install media is for desktop as are many of the derivatives.  Again . . . if you would like to update the descriptions of those derivatives (which were mostly written by the creators), knock yourself out and submit them on our git or to forum staff.

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

@ einpoklum

These are ready made versions of Devuan - live/installable - saves people having to decide what to install for themselves from the vast collection of programs available - & very quick to install from the live media, usually.

I used to install from Debian CDs/DVD, until I found suitable live/installable media - now I nearly always use live distros to install from. smile

(To see what they look like, just go to their home pages.)

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

And why haven't they included DevuanDog in that list of derivative systems? DevuanDog was a nice project, unfortunately it was discontinued.

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

Has anyone taken a look at Expirion Linux - there is a Devuan based Linux there under the "Files" tab

Is it related to that free credit scam known as expirion?

If so, wait for someone trustworthy here to say its legit if you have sense.

No it is spelt differently the one you mention is spelt Experion - The Expirion Linux is legitimate and listed on the Waiting List on DistroWatch - https://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=links#new

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

Linuxman, you do know I was trollfacing you right?

big_smile

I am very well aware that you didn't mean that credit card company. This is a linux forum.

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

linwirepa . . . thank you for creating a new Devuan spin and posting it here. That being said . . . I find the Debian logo in the banner of your website inappropriate in this context. It could be confusing for some and who knows what Debian would do if they saw that association with Devuan using their logo!!

Re: List of Devuan derivatives

simple golinux, as to what debian would do, probably they would do some sort of cease and desist action.

If I had to guess...

But yeah, it is inappropriate.

Although, I have seen that wallpaper in devuan before... so idk. Unless I am wrong in which case correct me.

You can download it and try it whenever you want. It is available to everyone.

I ask for your help to spread it and to make grow the devuan community in spanish, thanks to all of you for your collaboration.

Hello. Please, fix your web site, because when I try to enter your website, the firefox browser says that secure access is not possible. The browser prompts you to go to a website that uses the http protocol. Which is not good from a security point of view
