Devuan


#1

Slower than a snail !!!


#2

No good?


#3

Not for me. Nothing new, very slow, old software …


#4

Yeah Devuan does nothing for me. Personally I like systemd so I see no need for Devuan.


#5

Meh… I just go with 'de flow. I’m sure Devuan’s a fine system and intend no disrespect to those fine Ladies and Gents but systemd works just fine for me too.


#6

devuan is nice, because no systemd.
Sometimes it sucks though, because no systemd,


#7

I really wanted to like Devuan but it has really strange dependency issues that regular Debian doesn’t. I tried to apt purge vlc and xfburn and it was nigh impossible without removing other necessary packages…like the entire XFCE desktop. :rage:


#8

Uh, I think I will stay away from Devuan. It sounds like a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde system. Sounds like a lot of trouble, if one dependency changes then the whole system goes out of wack.

That’s a common problem for people unfamiliar with Debian’s metapackages and how to handle them, here is a guide:

And yes, pure Debian also has this feature :slight_smile:
