This is Devuan 2.0 ASCII desktop-live edition. It contains the same package
selection as the default desktop in the regular installer isos, with the
addition of a few packages for the live system, wireless firmware, a 
live-cd installer and remastering tool to make your own live-CD/DVD image.

You can burn the iso to DVD or use dd or cat to image a USB thumb drive.

	1. Set language/locale at boot.
	2. Wireless (non-free) firmware
	3. Install to hard drive
	4. Remastering
	5. Bug reports and support links.


Choose the "Other language" option from the boot menu.
Press TAB to edit the boot command.
Backspace to erase "it_IT.UTF-8"  (Ignore the repeating lines. Bug 
or misconfigured?)
Type your locale code in its place and then ENTER.
Note: When you install the system, your chosen language will be the 
default in the installed system.


To set up wireless networking, use wicd network manager or run
from a root terminal (or with sudo).

Wireless firmware is already installed. Most of the firmware packages 
come from the non-free repository, however the non-free and contrib 
repositories are not enabled. If you want to install packages from 
non-free or contrib, you need to edit /etc/apt/sources.list or add them 
through Synaptic Package Manager in the System menu.

You can remove all the non-free firmware after you reboot into the new 
installation by running (as root or with sudo):


If you need to reinstall a firmware package, they are located in /firmware
and can be installed with:

    dpkg -i <package-name>

Here is the full list of non-free wireless firmware packages installed:

This Devuan live-iso comes with Refracta Installer, which will copy the 
running system to hard drive and install the GRUB bootloader. Any changes 
you make to the running system will be copied to the installation. This 
includes desktop configuration, software added or removed, language/locale 
settings and other changes in system configuration.

The installer will allow you to create a separate /home partition and/or 
a separate /boot partition if needed. 

There is no automatic partitioning. You can create the partitions before 
you start the installer or from within the installer. Gparted, cfdisk and 
gdisk are all installed and available. For a legacy bios install, the 
minimum needed is a single partition for the system. For a uefi install, 
you must also have an EFI partition. Refer to the installer help 
document. (See /usr/lib/refractainstaller/readme.refractainstaller.txt 
or press Help from within the installer.)

IMPORTANT NOTE: grub-efi-amd64 is installed. If you boot from bios, the
installer will find the grub-pc package and ask if you want it copied
and installed or if you would like to proceed without a bootloader. 

If your hardware needs a 32-bit uefi bootloader with a 64-bit operating 
system, install the grub-efi-ia32 package before running the installer. 
This is true for both graphical and cli installers.
	dpkg -i /grub-efi-ia32

Note: UEFI implementations in motherboards vary in their adherence to 
standards from one manufacturer to the next. Read the Help in the 
installer, read the additional links in the help, and be prepared to do 
some manual fixing of your bootloader. 

That said, you should not be surprised if it all works perfectly.

HP WARNING!!! If your computer was made by Hewlett-Packard and uses UEFI, 
read these before installing!

You can also start the installer from a root terminal (or with sudo):
	refractainstaller		# Starts the text-only installer.
	refractainstaller-yad		# Starts the graphical installer.

You can encrypt the filesystem if desired. (root filesystem and /home).
The installer will use an existing swap partition. If there is no swap 
partition or if you un-check that option, the installer will create a 
swapfile in the root of the filesystem. The default size is 256MB, but 
this can be changed by editing the config file. (/etc/refractainstaller.conf)
This installer will not let you encrypt a swap partition; use a swapfile 
on an encrypted partition instead. 

If you want automatic partitioning, LVM or RAID, you must use one of the regular installer isos.
If you want to install on uefi hardware with an installer that has had more extensive testing, 
use one of the regular installer isos.

REMASTERING (Make your own live-CD/DVD/USB)

Run Refracta Snapshot from the applications menu or refractasnapshot-gui 
in a root terminal for the graphical version.
Run refractasnapshot from a root terminal for the text-only version. 

The program will copy your installed system and pack it into a bootable 
iso that can be burned to optical disk or imaged to a usb stick. 
See /usr/share/doc/refractasnapshot-base/README.gz for details.
