Devuan GNU+Linux

Last Update: 2018-04-21 06:50 UTC


Devuan GNU+Linux is a Linux distribution forked from Debian in 2015. The project's primary goal is to provide a variant of Debian without the complexities and dependencies of systemd, an init system and services manager originally developed by Red Hat and later adopted by most other Linux distributions. Devuan's initial beta release was made available in April 2016, together with an upgrade path from Debian 7.0 "Wheezy" and a possibility to switch to Devuan from Debian 8.0 "Jessie". The distribution adopted Xfce as its default desktop.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 30 (318), 6 months: 39 (269), 3 months: 36 (288), 4 weeks: 55 (200), 1 week: 59 (182)

Average visitor rating: 8.97/10 from 213 review(s).

  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

I sold my Mac and am now back to my old Core2Duo Dell 1520 laptop. In the old days I ran Debian on this machine and it ran very well, but not any more. I installed Debian 8 and experienced long boot/shut down times, and sometimes the system just hung indefinitely with a blank screen. Then I began reading about the Debian fork and the systemd controversy within Debian. So I installed Devuan, and wow, what a difference! This laptop boots in a few seconds, runs flawlessly, and shuts down without delay.

Using Devuan since it's early alpha release, still running the same original install all this time without error or crash. Been using Linux for 14 years and it is the first time afforded that luxury of an error free distribution, more than luck I'd say.
About six months ago updated to ascii (testing) nd then on to ceres (unstable) with complete success and running perfectly since.
Give Devuan a try, nothing to loose and peace of mind to gain!

The reason this distro keeps getting less hits each day is that the search is over once you install it. It is a lot of work to remove systemd depends on the largest distro base O/S. I decided to write a review letting you know the "popularity" of clicks / day mean nothing. THIS is the O/S you've been looking for. Download Ascii installer, and get to it. You won't be disappointed.
