Pretty sure I did. I have Wayland running on a Debian 12 box but didn't bother with on Alpine - might give that a shot soon on a non-server machine.

My condolences.

I'm running alpine on a spare laptop here, but it's a pretty spartan install.

Thought id take a serous look at Devuan again. Ditch systemD perhaps.


Grab the latest desktop installer. 1/2 thru. BOOOM  something about
"bla bla not compatible with an unmerged /usr directory bla bla"  Um
its a fresh install on a brand new VM folks, using your installer.. 
it should 'just work'

 

Oh well. lost interest if its going to take troubleshooting just to
install.  


I wonder what you did there. I perform lots of Devuan installs for testing random crap and I rarely find any issue.

These days i use FAI..  Its also pretty minimal, and auto install.
Its not quite a headless install, but zero effort other than hitting

enter to reboot, to give you a chance to pull the boot USB, but that

is the only interaction.  And you can add any package you want to
the installer, easily. Sure you can always 'roll your own' in most
distros, but this is painless.


I have a tencendy to roll Devuan LXC images for when I need a Linux container. Alpine works fine too. I don't use Linux all that much since all the important stuff runs on OpenBSD here.

I find Tiny Core Linux quite ok to work with if you need a light Linux disibution as a desktop (or as an emergency light server) but the entry barrier for acomplishing meaningful tasks is high. Still, you can remaster your Tiny Core Linux images and boot media quite easily and build a neat package with the software you need to perform a specific tasks, consuming nearly no resources at all and running blazing fast.

Booted. Ran install. It did some stuff ( past the point of making the file system and copying files. I think it was on the tail end of the setup ).. then *Poof*. I didn't even get to the point of doing anything to break it.

I might look at it again later. Might not. I donno. Long ago i did have it running but too much stuff was missing for me personally to use it. ( forget what now, but enough )

Really? I think it has worked as a Debian drop-in replacement pretty much since the first day of release. I had not noticed any missing component.

This was REALLY early on, perhaps pre-release days. Not sure now. And i cant tell you what i was missing, but there were a couple of things i use on a daily basis that were gone so the experiment didn't last long. It wasn't until now that i thought id peek again.  Could i have compiled them myself? Most likely. But really didn't feel like messing with it. If i have to go to that extent, might as well just go all-in and go Linux from scratch..  Or back to BSD.

 

( and speaking of BSD, not heard from our resident kitty for a while. Hope kitty is ok out there.   And Cat..   i cant imagine what her life is like in a war zone )
