Distrowatch last edited by
The Devuan project, which rebuilds the Debian distribution after removing systemd and all related components from it, has announced the availability of the first beta snapshot of Devuan GNU+Linux 3.0.0, code name “Beowulf”: “The Devuan 3 ‘Beowulf’ beta release is now ready for review. What’s new in ‘Beowulf’? Changes in su - the behavior of su has changed, Use ‘su -’ to get root’s path or use the full path to commands if you use only ‘su’; PulseAudio - if you have no sound, make sure the following line in /etc/pulse/client.conf.d/00-disable-autospawn.conf is commented as #autospawn=no; note that Firefox ESR no longer requires PulseAudio, so you can easily remove PulseAudio and just use ALSA. Devuan 3 ‘Beowulf’ is available for i386, amd64, armel, armhf, arm64 and ppc64el platforms. Direct and easy upgrade path from Devuan ‘ASCII’ and migration path from Debian ‘Buster’ to Devuan 3 ‘Beowulf’ are available here.” See the brief release announcement and the detailed release notes for additional information.
