OK, I'll repeat back what you said as far as I understand it. You said you
used the installer to create a custom partitioning scheme, but the
installer ignored your partitioning scheme, and installed the entire
system into /, instead of mounting various partitions in the
appropriate mount points under /. Correct? If yes, then a /etc/fstab
must still have been created, else the system wouldn't boot; it just
wasn't the /etc/fstab you wanted. What I said is still correct. I was
able to use the devuan 3.0 text installer to create a custom
partitioning scheme inside the installer, and have various directories
placed in the partitions I wanted.
You still haven't explained exactly what you did, or which docs you
followed, so confirming that what you want to do is possible at least
in the text installer for devuan 3.0 is the best I can do to help you
at this point. When you create a partition in the installer, you need
to be sure to specify how the partition is to be used (E.G. swap,
ext4), and where it is to be mounted in the target directory tree.
