will there ever be NON-systemd Bunsenlabs

I thought this deserved its own topic as my question is
will there ever be a version of bunsenlabs that is non-systemd?

one way this could be achieved is by having a devuan based bunsenlabs.
Since Devuan appear to have a very stable non-systemd distro it
could make sense, plus they have done all the work of de-systemd-ing a distro

I have to admit that's what I have been using a long time now,
but I do miss the whole crunchbang/bunsenlabs way of life

Interesting idea.

I was thinking of trying Devuan, but like so many other things lately, it was put on back burner.

Re: will there ever be NON-systemd Bunsenlabs

I don't think there is enough interest in that.
BL is built onm standard Debian...
But, you can always install BL-packages in devuan...

Se more in thread: Bunsenlabs on non-systemd Debian (antiX19)

It could be better to install a cli-devuan, add bl-repos and install packages one after the other, that is installable.

BL also works well with either antiX and MX (both are available without systemd).  Here's my run at that a while ago.... https://eirenicon.org/2019/10/10/blam-openbox/

To be honest I hadnt thought of that. It sounds like a good idea. I could try that/
In fact that sounds like the way to go

Thanks. i will read that

Edited in....
ah what a great link
thanks

OK just read the webpage - that's pretty much what I'm doing with Devuan
I think I'm going to look at how to get a genuine bunsenlabs setup with openbox
on a Devuan base - I'll make it my hobby for a while

That sounds like a fine idea...

EDIT: you might want to check the miyolinux setup and modify it. (devuan respin for openbox)

Re: will there ever be NON-systemd Bunsenlabs

Hi guys. I'm currently running some of the lithium repositories with devuan. It's working for the most part, although some of the bugs about the gtk themes keep biting me. I came over here to look up whether there's a boron or beryllium repository to use, I'm currently in chimera.
