installing it, I made some live isos. I expect that there will eventually
be an official Devuan-Live, but this is not it. HTH.

Here's the README:
UNOFFICIAL LIVE DEVUAN JESSIE BETA
This live image was created in the following manner:
Installed Devuan-Jessie-1.0.0-beta with XFCE4 in VirtualBox.

Added refractasnapshot-base, refractainstaller-base and their
dependencies. (see below)
Created live isohybrid image with refractasnapshot.

No other changes were made. All software with the exception of
refractasnapshot and refractainstaller came from the Devuan repository. No
other software repositories are configured.
You can burn this iso to DVD or copy it to a usb thumb drive with the 'dd'
command or 'cat' in exactly the same manner you would with other isohybrid
To install to hard drive, run 'refractainstaller' from a root terminal.
You do not need a network connection during the installation.
You will be asked a few questions, and then the running live system will
be copied to the selected partition(s). Any configuration changes you made
during the live session will be copied to the installation. There may be
some excpetions to this, as certain system files are excluded from the copy.
See /usr/lib/refractainstaller/installer_exclude.list and
(/)etc/refractainstaller.conf for details and additional options.
Once installed, you can create your own live-CD copy of your system, with
your software and configuration changes by running 'refractasnapshot' from
a root terminal.
See /usr/lib/refractasnapshot/snapshot_exclude.list and
(/)etc/refractasnapshot.conf for configuration options.

Edit: If you install and then make your own snapshot, be sure to set $edit_boot_menu to yes, so the user name gets added to the boot command. Any name other than "user" must be specified with something like
- Code: Select all
Login - Password
devuan - devuan
root - devuan
Edit3: refractasnapshot-9.3.3 will put the user name in the boot command if the name is not "user".
