Thank you Head_on_a_Stick, I think you gave a good solution. To confirm what you wrote, I installed Devuan ASCII (stretch). Installed Gnome using elogind, and works very well. Both Xfce (sysV) and Gnome (systemd) in same install. Next, upgrade to Beawulf (buster) which upgraded smoothly, and works well.Head_on_a_Stick wrote: ↑Tue May 21, 2019 12:23 pmThe current release version of Devuan is ASCII, based on stretch, but their development branches are beowulf & ceres, which are based on buster & sid.
I was running beowulf briefly and it works very well indeed, they have now removed libsystemd0 and the Debian developers have adopted their version of elogind:
Code: Select all
