    Hi Aitor.

    According to https://cumulusnetworks.com/blog/ifupdown2/ , 
ifupdown2 has been developped to replace ifupdown in switches, in which 
the configuration can be pretty complicated with dependency chains 
between physical and logical interfaces such as bridges. IIUC, it is 
supposed to allow dynamic changes of the configuration without needing 
to stop/start the interfaces. They claim it is backward-compatible with 
ifupdown. I guess it allows to do complicated things but I also guess it 
requires some serious learning. It does not seem fitted for a laptop or 
a simple server. We know that ifupdown cannot achieve all imaginable 
configurations, but it is a relatively simple tool usable in most usual 
configurations.

    The interfaces file describes actions which ifupdown performs  to 
set interfaces up and down, plus two special clauses "auto" and 
"allow-hotplug", which tell it which interfaces to set up 
automatically respectively at start-up or when the interface is 
plugged in (eg USB-Ethernet or USB-wifi interface). In the case of the 
loopback interface, "auto" is always fine because it isn't a hardware 
interface; in the case of other interfaces, "auto" works only if the 
interface is hard-wired and "allow-hotplug" works as well if it is 
hard-wired or hot-plug; this is why "auto" is deprecated in the 
installers except for lo.


    In the case of a  server, you generally want all interfaces 
(connected to different networks) to be brought up at start-up, 
therefore you just need "allow-hotplug" for all interfaces. In the 
case of a laptop with both a wifi and an Ethernet interface you 
generally do not want both interfaces to be used in the same time 
because they both play the role of the primary interface connected to 
the LAN, with identical configuration (typically "inet dhcp"). This is 
why you don't want ifupdown to start both; instead you need some tool 
able to detect if an ethernet cable is plugged in. When an ethernet 
cable is plugged in, this tool will tell ifupdown to configure the 
Ethernet interface and deconfigure the Wifi. If the cable is plugged 
out, it will tell it to do the opposite. I know two such tools: 
ifplugd and netplug. But there shouldn't be "auto" or "allow-hotplug" 
stanzas in the interface file in this case; their only effect is to 
cause a delay at start-up.


    In summary "auto" and "hotplug" assume that the interface can be 
configured. If you cannot assume it blindly, dont put them and install 
ifplugd or netplug. And this is the general case of a laptop. I 
understand that it would add more complexity to the installer to 
decide what to put in the interfaces file and it probably should not 
force the installation of ifplugd or netplug.

forgotten the name of.


    Didier



The origin of the startup delay is in the lock_interface() function of 
ifupdown in the main.c file:


https://github.com/wido/ifupdown/blob/master/main.c

between the lines nº196-209, surely because ifupdown is trying to lock 
both wired and wireless devices
at the same time that some dhcp client (isc-dhcp-client, dhcpcd5, 
udhcpc...) is trying to connect (in vain) to some of them,
being these resources busy. 


   AFAIU, dhcp client is invoked by the ifupdown logic only on 
interfaces already up. Logically, there might be an interface already up 
while ifupdown tries to set up another one, but it seems it starts them 
sequentially as shown by what we observe at startup of a laptop: 
typically, there is a delay in trying to set up eth, and wifi is only 
brought up after this delay, leaving the laptop hanging and without 
connection during the delay.


The C function used during the lock attempts is *fcntl* which uses the 
following macros:



Macro: /int/ *F_SETLK*

        whose error conditions are defined by EACCES in GNU/Linux and 
EAGAIN in GNU/Hurd.



Macro: /int/ *F_SETLKW  (= F_SETLK + Wait)
*

which causes the process to block (or wait) until the request can
be specified (line nº199 in main.c).


Read here for more details:

https://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/html_node/File-Locks.html

I replaced this code by an unique line:

        int flags = fcntl(fileno(lock_fp), F_SETLK, );

and the delay disappears (the same effect than removing 
"allow-hotplug" from /etc/network/interfaces.


As a final remark, the "auto " stanza seems to be deprecated, 
but some people still use it. In the case of


having both defined, that is:

auto eth0
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

the clause "allow-hotplug" has priority over "auto"; so, using both at 
the same time makes no sense.

ifupdown2 is another project similar to ifupdown, but developed in

2020-04-21 Thread Alexis PM via Dng
 I add other installer bug to the list: locales wrong configured.

In the installer, I choose Spanish (Spain). In the "additional locales" step, I 
don't add any, the header of the dialog indicates that "es_ES.UTF-8" is already 
selected, and "es_ES.UTF-8" is not in the list of additional locales, all seems 
fine. But in the installed system, apt, lightdm, xfce... are all in English.

perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
LANGUAGE = (unset), LC_ALL = (unset), LANG = "es_ES.UTF-8"
perl: warning: Falling bak to the standard locale ("C").

The solution:
dpkg-reconfigure locales
and choose the (unselected) "es_ES.UTF-8"

IIRC, the error message was about a file system error.  In that case,
I'd be fine with the message popping up everytime I insert a USB stick
or similar as well.  Seeing every few seconds irrespective of triggers
is overkill, as you mentioned already.

Unfortunately Debian's apt in buster depends on libsystemd0. See

We have a newly forked version of apt for ceres/chimaera, but not beowulf.

If this really bothers you, `apt install libelogind0' should replace it.

The option to uninstall does not resolve the main problem, which should be 
fixed upstream.

Practically it is important to be able to install packages even if they are not 
going to be used on the given computer (compare this to "Recommended" which are 
uncertain whether they will be used or not).

One specific case of value is installing many mostly identical computers with 
the same set of packages.

OT:
A similar issue is various services (like sshd) which are being started at a 
package installation time (not later, say after a reconfiguration, or never).  
policy.rc.d seems to be the only, inconvenient workaround. This is of course 
not Beowulf/Devuan-specific.

Thank you for your sentiment Steve. Devuan however does have an
accessible install option. This means that whatever accessibility
speech or braille output options were chosen during the install will
also be activated in the installed system. So, if someone initially
installed with for example software speech but not with braille but
that person needs braille later, that individual should be able to use
the already activated software speech to install and configure brltty
for braille output. For those who don't need brltty and who find the
log messages a problem, uninstalling brltty should resolve the issue.

I never thought about this before, but I think all packages for blind
people should come with all standard packages. Doing so avoids the
buried shovel situation where the blind person could install the
packages for blind people if only he or she could read enough to
install them.

Those of us who aren't blind can easily de-install them.

Yes, I think it came in that way, but its presence is not a problem.
The logs are, as Antony already wrote.

Including the package into a "task" just made that Debian/upstream bug apparent.

Aha - I wasn't aware of *that* Devuan-specific possibility, however I was 
basically confirming that the logfile entries which the OP was unhappy about 
occur on Debian too (provided someone or something installed brltty).

I'm not quite sure why brltty should be a recommendation for "console 
productivity", but the underlying problem would seem to be the logfile entries 
rather than the installation of the package, I think.

I'm happy to have packages installed on my machine which are (currently) non-
functional due to the required hardware not being plugged in, but I wouldn't 
want them constantly complaining about it.

Did you deliberately install accessibility for blind people?
[skipped]
 you will get these messages if the Braille display is not connected.
-

Then this is a bug, to fill the logs if hardware is not connected
(does not have to be Beowulf/Devuan fault, I did not test with Debian).

And no, it was not installed deliberately, but it could be. It came probably as 
a part of some task package.
Some of the computers which share the package set may have or lack the hardware.

brltty is the Braille display driver, and you will get these messages if the

Repeatedly I found security.debian.org to be several days ahead of
Devuan's security repos, which (according to 'apt-cache policy') at the
moment provides firefox-esr version 68.6.1 for beowulf.

When adding security.debian.org to the sources list, it could make
sense to have pinning rules like the following in /etc/apt/preferences
to prevent unwanted modifications: 

Package: systemd-sysv
Pin: release o=*
Pin-Priority: -1

Package: systemd
Pin: release o=*
Pin-Priority: -1

Regarding the "proposed-updates" mechanism, the _Debian_ documentation
states: 

"It should be noted that packages from security.debian.org
are copied into the p-u-new (o-p-u-new) directory
automatically. At the same time, packages that are uploaded
directly to proposed-updates (oldstable-proposed-updates) are
not monitored by the Debian security team." [1]

    I remember this was also the case in a previous version, wether

also remind you that the startup delay caused by the timed-out

there with the default interfaces file. The solution is to remove 
the clause "allow-hotplug eth0" and install ifupdown or the 
equivalent I have forgotten the name of. 
    Sorry for the typo. install *ifplugd* or an equivalent. 
After a reboot the network devices are properly brought up using 
different options like *auto*,

*allow-auto* or *allow-hotplug*.The differences between them are:

1) auto  - This stanza in /etc/network/interfaces file starts 
the network interface at boot

(this is the option used by the loopback virtual interface).

2) allow-auto  - Similar to the first one. I'm not pretty sure 
if there is any difference.


3) allow-hotplug  -  As opposed to the others, it starts when 
a *plug* event is detected.
The fact that it'll will be waiting for eventslike the linking of the 
ethernet cable or something that
involveskernel/eudev detection against the hardware, can lead us to 
think that thiskind of linking
configurationis the guiltyof the delay during the boot process, but 
this is only a half-truth.


    After experimenting I think I can state that "hotplug" here means 
that the interface itself - not the cable - can be hotplugged. This is 
usefull if you plug in a USB-Ethernet adapter. It has nothing to do with 
detecting the connection of an Ethernet cable. If your Ethernet 
interface is hard-wired, the "auto" stanza has the same effect.Once the 
Ethernet interface is detected, the logic of ifupdown is to bring it up, 
and then it enters a timed-out wait for the carrier.


    f you have several interfaces, ifupdown will try to bring them up 
one after the other with a timed-out wait for the carrier. In general on 
a laptop, you have one Ethernet and one Wifi, both hardwired. You can 
put an "auto" or "allow-hotplug" stanza for the Wifi because it will be 
tried last. If you have an "allow-hotplug" for the Ethernet and the 
cable is not connected, it will just add a delay to the startup but it 
will not allow the detection of the carrier when an Ethernet cable is 
connected; you need something like ifplugd for that.

This said, and being the different alternatives above focused to the

configurations altogether makes no sense in my opinion. Particularly, 
i'm using "allow-hotplug" for the
images of gnuinos because it's generated automatically at boot time 
during live sessions by some script.

    I remember this was also the case in a previous version, wether 
Jessie or Ascii. Obviously this isn't an issue when upgrading. I also 
remind you that the startup delay caused by the timed-out activation of 
the Ethernet interface (when not plugged in) is still there with the 
default interfaces file. The solution is to remove the clause 
"allow-hotplug eth0" and install ifupdown or the equivalent I have 
forgotten the name of.

Hello and thanks for Beowulf.

An issue:

it looks like

  devuan_beowulf_3.0.0_beta_amd64_netinstall.iso
  and the base system installable from it

do not contain the ifupdown package (nor other networking utilities besides 
busybox ip?).

The resulting base installation remains offline.

I'm not saying to throw away TLS in every case.  I'm only saying that
TLS offers nothing for the transfer of a public PGP key. Frankly,
blindly trusting a public pgp key "just because you got it from
"https://somewhere.com; is actively detrimental in that now you're just
giving yourself a false sense of security.

You will copy the link from the manual or the mail. Yes things can go
wrong everywhere, even there. Because so many things can go wrong, one
should reduce the risk that they do (and as well make it harder for
attackers to succeed). It's a none argument to say a technique doesn't
protects you from everything, so renounce on using it. In contrary, use
what you can as long as its somewhat reasonable in resource consumption
and effort it needs to set up. Writing https instead of http in a manual
for one package is not so much of a job and for that one package the
server will not go down because of increased load.

Unfortunately there is no DNSSEC on pkgmaster.devuan.org nor on
packages.gnuinos.org at, no CAA and no HSTS, still support for TLS 1.0
and 1.1. This could all be improved with not that much of work to make
it more save. If done and you type in the right server name you land
pretty much where you wanted (yes, enable dnssec on your resolver).
These changes wouldn't increase the load of the server too much, because
most of the users do not install apt-transport-https (~30% have, did
they also change sources.list?).

OK, so now you've "verified(tm)" that you successfully got
"devuan_a1gn1ng_key" from https://devane.com/pgp.asc.  Great that you
were able to verify the server.  But you still got a bogus key :)

Which was pretty much my point -- TLS doesn't protect you from getting
sent the wrong key, if you somehow got directed to the wrong site...

That is true, yes. But if you get other keys in your keystore than you
really wanted, packages do verify that you don't want that they do. You
need to verify imported keys, that they belong to the one you think they
should. That's why I suggested to use a https-secured  link, because at

I meant what I said.

You getting my pgp key (8e11ddf31279a281) from https://mysite has no
inherent benefit over getting it from http://mysite.  Or likewise,
getting "notDansRealKey" from "https://notmysite; doesn't actually
protect you.

Your trust in my key (and therefore, my signature) should not be founded
on _where_ you got it from, but your own personal web of trust made up
of (hopefully!) people you know and trust to do their due diligence for
confirming I am me. (Or in the specific case of the devuan signing key,
that the devuan key is actually owned by the team).

The entire point of the public key is that it can be obtained over any

Could you please change this to have a secured download or if not

The above holds even when the standard system utilities are installed.

The server ISO worked fine for an air-gapped install on non-UEFI
hardware.  I expect it to fail installing GRUB on UEFI hardware because
the grub-efi-amd64 package (and its dependencies?) are not included.

I have since stumbled across

 1. The *_netinstall.iso (~300 M) installs a minimal base system then
 downloads additional packages from the Devuan repositories during the
 installation process.  Not to be used for offline installs.

in the Devuan Beowulf Install Guide[1].  I guess the guide is serious
about the netinstall image *not* to be used for offline installs.

 [1]: 
https://beta.devuan.org/os/documentation/install-guides/beowulf/install-devuan

Fair enough but it deviates from, oh, a decade or so of previous
experience with Debian and Devuan netinst ISO image.  There was some
mention in the Devuan meeting notes for 2020-03-19 (cannot find it in
the devuan-dev ML archives yet) about perhaps "rectifying" this.

Keeping finger crossed ;-)

Hope this helps,

Thanks!  I hadn't considered the possibility of the installer
pseudopackage getting renamed (and have probably glossed over any
rename if it was mentioned on the lists.

Have just submitted bug#413 for the missing grub-efi-amd64 packages and
another for an I18N issue in (at least) the installer language selection
step.

Hope this helps,

Please get your keys always over secured connections. Use https.

This is also bad in the docs for Devuan:
apt-get install devuan-keyring --allow-unauthenticated

Could you please change this to have a secured download or if not
possible a check of the downloaded keys? This is a must. Put something
like the following to the docs:

wget
https://pkgmaster.devuan.org/devuan/pool/main/d/devuan-keyring/devuan-keyring_2017.10.03_all.deb

dpkg --install devuan-keyring_2017.10.03_all.deb

Olaf,

Thanks.

There is a devuan-installer pseudopackage which is probably most appropriate.

I prefer submitting issues at bugs.devuan.org to prevent them falling
thru the cracks :-) but I'm wondering whether they should go to

 - debian-installer, or
 - installation-reports

I've so far found a few issues installing from the amd64 netinstall ISO
(created 20200313)

 - grub-efi-amd64 is not included (but grub-efi-ia32 is :-?)
   - the server ISO seems to have the same issue
 - not installing any of the extra software, not even the standard
   system utilities, leaves you with a fairly badly broken system
   - no network (ifupdown not installed ... :-o)
   - weird behaviour of the backspace key (input is deleted but the
 cursor moves forward instead of backwards)
   - encrypted lvm with openrc only mounts / (with sysvinit other
 filesystems are mounted)

Background: I have been doing *minimal* air-gapped installs using the
  Devuan ASCII (and Debian buster) netinst ISOs without any trouble.
  Here minimal means zero extra packages, not even standard system
  utilities.  When following the same procedure with the Beowulf beta
  ISO this no longer works :cry:

Off now to try with the amd64 server ISO (on non-UEFI hardware).

Hope this helps,

Great news. Thanks a lot.


Yes, I've it working on my computers. Thanks, golinux and all the 
contributors!


Btw, i fixed my bugs in the config of amprolla, and the repo of gnuinos 
is working again:


deb http://packages.gnuinos.org/merged/  main
deb-src http://packages.gnuinos.org/merged/  main

deb-src http://packages.gnuinos.org/merged/ -security main

deb http://packages.gnuinos.org/merged/ -updates main
deb-src http://packages.gnuinos.org/merged/ -updates main

for jessie, ascii and beowulf.

As you know, you need to install the gpg key of gnuinos:

# curl http://packages.gnuinos.org/gnuinos_pk.asc | apt-key add -

Cheers,

Because a vanilla installation of devuan is basically like a vanilla

Dear dev1ers,

The Devuan 3 Beowulf Beta release is now ready for review. The installer 
isos,

desktop-live and minimal-live isos can be downloaded from:

https://files.devuan.org/devuan_beowulf/

### 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'. See the following for
   more information:
   
https://www.debian.org/releases/buster/amd64/release-notes/ch-information.en.html#su-environment-variables

   https://wiki.debian.org/NewInBuster
   https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=905564

Pulseaudio
 - If you have no sound, make sure the following line in
   /etc/pulse/client.conf.d/00-disable-autospawn.conf is commented as
   shown here:

   #autospawn=no

 - Note that firefox-esr no longer requires pulseaudio. You can easily
   remove pulseaudio and just use alsa.

Please read the Release Notes for more detailed information:

http://files.devuan.org/devuan_beowulf/Release_notes.txt

Install, upgrade and migrate documentation for beowulf and be accessed 
at:


https://beta.devuan.org/os/install (still a WIP)

Please report any issues you may experience to this list, 
bugs.devuan.org,

freenode irc #devuan-dev or the dev1galaxy.org forum.
