Spectrwm in Debian 8.7. In my opinion, spectrwm is simple and more intuitive to use than i3.

Am I the only one that finds that sun "cute"? BTW nice setup :mrgreen:

Debian stretch now offers runit-init in the repositories and it seems to work very well indeed as a straight drop-in replacement for the init-system-that-shall-not-be-named:

https://packages.debian.org/stretch/runit-init

runit is a cross-platform Unix init scheme with service supervision, a replacement for sysvinit, and other init schemes.

runit is optimized for reliability and small size. The amount of code in process no 1 should be minimal.

:lol:

Yes, but can you pin the unnamed init completely out of existence for the life of that install version? What apps will want to pull the unnamed init in? Enquiring minds want to know, dum dum dum dummmmmmm (for emphasis on the drama, lol). This is bittersweet good news though, I sincerely and deeply miss Debian. :cry:

Alas not, my friend :(

The systemd-shim is in use along with systemd-udevd and systemd-logind is assigning the user sessions, as is required by any dbus-dependent programs:
Code: Select all
root@Helium:~ # pgrep -a systemd
407 /lib/systemd/systemd-udevd --daemon
1915 /lib/systemd/systemd-logind
root@Helium:~ #

But systemd is *not* booting the box and runit is firmly in charge:
Code: Select all
root@Helium:~ # cat /proc/1/comm
runit
root@Helium:~ #

It should certainly be possible to use runit-init in Devuan though, I may try that myself...

EDIT: I booted into a snapshot of the system and ran `apt purge systemd`, this removed the systemd-shim along with networkmanager and lightdm (among others) and I could not `startx` from a console login afterwards because of permission-related errors:

I will try to get this working...

@Head_on_a_Stick, thank you for your very thorough answer, regardless of the info contained therein is somewhat troubling. :(

You are welcome, but ,
We don't deserve the credit for the development of Debian, and it's creation.
Most every body here are Debian users, not developers.
In any even , as far as the forum goes, "your welcome", there are many members
that contribute, in trying to help other Debian users, etc.
