Subject: Re: [devuan-dev] [DNG] Migrating from Buster to Beowulf - feedback needed
as for my personal machines, I use a series of scripts to upgrade from ascii to beowulf and install the various desktop environments
they are very simple scripts, just some function and some variable nothing particularly difficult.

If someone want to work on it they could become scripts for migrating from debian-buster to Devuan-beowulf

I have just had a go in a couple of scenarios using a VM.

The basic process is:

1) Install sysvinit-core (if you don't have it already), remove libnss-systemd
    and reboot.
2) Manually download and  install devuan-keyring (wget, dpkg -i).
3) change apt sources from buster to beowulf.
4) apt update.
4) apt full-upgrade or apt-get dist-upgrade.

Should you also be installing the devuan-baseconf package? Or does that get pulled in automatically during the transition?


base-files will be pulled in automatically.
devuan-baseconf is useless and shouldn't even be in the repo.
