Refracta uses the Devuan main repository. The packages don't get changed
in any way. As I mentioned in another post, Refracta and Devuan are using
the same Debian kernel.

Can anyone tell us what commands/options are used in making the Devuan
isos?  (xorriso, genisoimage, mkisofs?)

Speaking of booting everything, someone brought an old PII laptop to a LUG
meeting. He was trying to install linux on it and not having any luck. We
were able to boot my refracta(wheezy) usb stick on it and install the
system. It worked great until I blew away the plop bootloader by
installing grub. :o
