my snapshot Devuan CERES Star 32 bit 2024/02/22

It is really only MY (for me and a friend having birth day the 29. February!) snapshot, size 1,7 GB.

You use completely if you want at your own risk. No claim to me!

Download is

https://e.pcloud.link/publink/show?code … u7khtj1gSV

I did update yesterday but did get a broken package (concerning «qemu»! For those don't having to do with qemu, it is probably no problem: They can try to actualize!). This is the rease why 1 week old...

size: 1.7 GB
root passwd: .
user name: x
user passwd: .

Enjoy if you can's need!

Info: I have no WLAN at home (old house where the office desk is wired) and don't know something about this matter (Puppy Linux 32 bit bookworm also uses connman! Perhaps you can get help in connman there!)

Ah! Puppy Linux! You can find an other upload from me, also an experimental but from Extix (is itself a snapshot, see https://extix.se ) / Ubuntu (2025.04), size 2.1 GB, looking here at the puppy form!

did forget: keyboard is US INTL (works well with hareware having the brand US INTL) being usable for a lot of European languages incl. my mother tongue, French, and my family tongue, German (as it is an official keyboard variant, look for pictures in the web)

it is the keyboard used bei https://inputking.com ! using inputking, you can write about all languages of the world without to activate some input method, only open the page, select the language group and write... you will also find a picture of the keyboard in inputking! But take care: the build in editor of inputking has no commands! To save your text, you must use the mouse or CTRL C ! And if your browser crashes, the work is probably loos.

Browser: installed is Gnome browser with the complete Gnome office (plus the presentation magicpoint, command name for magicpoint is mgp ).

If online you can add seamonkey (I hate firefox, but it is also a possible option) with the command

sudo apt install seamonkey

as a depository for it (and firefox) is present in sources.list.

For a completely other keyboard in the first session,

setxkbmap some whatelse

and snapshot (you can select free each keyboard using refractainstaller after refractasnapshot)!

good luck...

Re: my snapshot Devuan CERES Star 32 bit 2024/02/22

Thank you!

Note: That iso fits in a USB card with only 2 GB (old portable phones out the time before smart phones ;-) ). The Ubuntu iso not but fit well in an fat16 file system (have 4 GB room). Fat 16 systems are better to burn the iso with dd into the drive because it was the native mode as USB memories came!

@oui
Please accept my congratulations!
It works,  "dd" is loaded on my lenovo s205.
Synaptic won't load from the menu, I loaded it from the terminal and it won't turn off, no joke. The shutdown menu button does not work.
And so, he runs quite quickly.

Re: my snapshot Devuan CERES Star 32 bit 2024/02/22

thank you very much!

yes, I shut down from terminal with

sudo shutdown -h now

(it is not from me, was so and have to be so  because it uses JWM! but JWM has so much profits espec. it size!)

REBOOT is more easy: CTRL F5 and after that CTRL DEL

synaptic: you can login as root and it works ;-)  !

as user impossible because you are not superuser ;-)

I have (only) 8 GB RAM but can load in RAM (3d option at booting time) and it works
It was the goal to rich with this action: a super Puppy linux: you load it (if possible in RAM, but also if you "only" the first load option not out the RAM it is the same: the start will also be forgotten next start!) - it works super fast and good - you shut down - no trace : you are free, nobody can follow you ...
start a full installation is only for circonstances and those willing let traces for tomorrow! think about that before you start!

(you can probably also save the ISO on the disk and START directly OUT THE ISO with grub start of CD images! Search in the forum, Our friendly fsmithred (thank you very much!) did give me examples in that forum how to do that)

... RACY, LIGHTNING as Puppy Linux because out the RAM (but rare were the Puppy Linux offering so much main software preinstalled as base!

and this one is not only compatible, it is Devuan (but Star in the configuration from Ozy, only changed by nursing through the different Devuan stages since the publication: divers incompatibilities did appear making divers involuntary remove needing! Puppy Linux to be comparable needs at least the devx.sfs ! But the execution speed is comparable after start out the RAM. My only one real deception: the load after the initial start find I long (full 2 minutes and 30 seconds at least - I find it is long! But also the normal start (1st option) is long because it never works OUT THE RAM!)...

Re: my snapshot Devuan CERES Star 32 bit 2024/02/22

as long and during month ago I did explain, my actual main Pc from DELL (XT3) does not support the new kernels from Devuan.

I did remove those kernels...

But you can probably reintroduce then easily using synaptic (that I did use to remove then...).

BUT

- Dell Aptitude XT3 is NOT the only one PC touched by the kernel terror at Devuan (I did loose 3 months of work because of that and did have to change the distribution and go to Ubuntu again, oh terror):

- my old Acer emachines has also the same problem!

and the new (2..3 days ago) bluestar linux (is not star from Devuan!!! not at all: is bluestar from Arch) works immediately without some problem on both!

Re: my snapshot Devuan CERES Star 32 bit 2024/02/22

My interest is twofold, to understand what we are talking about and to see what happens when we try to attach an unstable release to the old one.

Since the one in question was made “for myself,” it may well be that my conclusions apply only to my computers.

1. Programs that are present in the user menu, but require root rights, do not start. If it is supposed to be done in the terminal via sudo, then why are they in the menu? In a normal DE, a window appears for entering a password.
2. If you run the su command in the terminal, then all menus do not react in any way to pressing its items.

Unstable release, enough for me.

P.S. From a practical point of view, the image devuan_daedalus_5.0.0_amd64_desktop-live.iso is 1.4 GB, openSUSE-Leap-15.5-XFCE-Live-x86_64-Build12.26-Media.iso is 0.95 GB, but a hobby is an irrational thing. smile

openSUSE-Leap-15.5-XFCE-Live-x86_64-Build12.26-Media.iso is 0.95 GB

google did not find it (in the last times I get only tronck find list from google with links to things I have absolutely no interest like that:

openSUSE Leap 15.5
get.opensuse.org › leap
A brand new way of building openSUSE and a new type of a hybrid Linux distribution. Leap uses source from SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLE), which gives Leap a level ...
Es fehlt:  Build12. 26- 0.95

so it is not possible to appreciate...

Re: my snapshot Devuan CERES Star 32 bit 2024/02/22

google did not find it

It's easier to find it on https://distrowatch.com/.
Google is not needed to search for distributions, here is a page with a link “Alternative Downloads!”, when you click on it, a window with live images opens.
https://get.opensuse.org/leap/15.5/#download

Here is the direct link to the image
https://download.opensuse.org/distribut … -Media.iso

P.S.By the way, if you have time and desire, try it, they use kernel version 5.14... maybe your problems with the kernel will disappear.
