Hey y'all, haven't played with the latest Snapshot yet (been too busy to have any fun lately, lol) but am rolling myself new versions of my devuan minimal iso's, i'm currently still on a very modded version of the last beta Snapshot before 10.0.0.
I downloaded new copies of the latest Snapshot and Installer and am about to update the iso i'm building with them.
Just wondering if there's any new dependencies I need to install, and if I still need to follow the procedure detailed here for making both a uefi-enabled iso and also a uefi-installable iso are correct? :

I don't think they'll be able to to a grub-install since you don't have an efi partiton. It will remove grub-pc, but that doesn't have to be permanent. You can build the iso when the efi packages are installed.
The beta version of refractasnapshot that handles uefi is set to puke if you don't have grub-efi installed, but I just added code to optionally override that. I need to be able to do that to make an iso that can be installed on uefi or bios.
You can reinstall grub-pc, and it will remove grub-efi-amd64, but not grub-efi-amd64-bin. That one can coexist, and it's needed for the iso to boot on uefi. And you can make a uefi-bootable iso after you've reinstalled grub-pc. Just keep a copy of the grub-efi .debs for when you install on uefi hardware. And you must use the version of refractasnapshot that I haven't packaged yet. Should be ready in a day or two.
