Devuan Template

Could we please get a Devuan Template?

That's an Debian Jessie but with a SysV-Init?

While I've upgraded most my OpenVZ's following this guide:

https://devuan.org/os/documentation/dev … -to-Devuan

Having a template would be nice.

Thanks.

Re: Devuan Template

Ran through this, on a container, it causes issues with the node being able to control the container, I am not sure why exactly, something to do with udev/legacy tty so I cant provide a template, obviously anyone is welcome to do this themselves and it really only takes 2 minutes but support options will be limited if you do.

What happens if you install Wheezy then side-grade with apt?

Re: Devuan Template

I bet it'll roll up without an issue, provided you setup apt properly.  I really am digging Devuan for my Debian needs (without the parasitic systemd).

Here's a jessie (devuan) setup with the latest debian backports for, uh, jessie.

# deb http://us.mirror.devuan.org/merged/ jessie main contrib non-free

deb http://us.mirror.devuan.org/merged/ jessie main contrib non-free
deb-src http://us.mirror.devuan.org/merged/ jessie main contrib non-free

# jessie-security, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://us.mirror.devuan.org/merged/ jessie-security main contrib non-free
deb-src http://us.mirror.devuan.org/merged/ jessie-security main contrib non-fre
e

# jessie-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://us.mirror.devuan.org/merged/ jessie-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://us.mirror.devuan.org/merged/ jessie-updates main contrib non-free

#Debian Jessie-Backports (contains KPTI patched kernel)
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main contrib non-free

Re: Devuan Template

I mean it works, but I can no longer manage it from the node if you do it, no promises on solusvm actions either, so it's more of a knock your self out... but

Re: Devuan Template

Shouldn't you just need to make sure inittab/gettytab binds to the virtual interface?

Re: Devuan Template

That was what I thought the problem was initially, I have fixed all that now (well checked it), I am going to try again with the wheezy > jessie path you suggested.
