ISO Guide for i386 and amd64

desktop-live: Explore the default Xfce desktop before installing. Then install easily and quickly from the live session using the refractainstaller. Firmware is installed but can easily be removed.

netinstall: Preferred by more experienced users to create servers, minimal systems but also includes choice of several Desktop Environments (DEs). Not to be used for offline install. Internet connection and available bandwidth needed because all but the core components are downloaded during the installation process. The “expert install” allows user to opt out of firmware installation and a choice of alternate bootloader. A default install will provide firmware.

server: CD1 of a 4 CD set that allows for a complete off-line server/minimal installation. The remaining CDs offer several desktop choices and a limited selection of additional software.

desktop: Use this DVD if there is no network available and/or a need for multiple offline installations. The image contains several desktop choices and additional software options. LXQt and KDE are only available on DVD.

minimal-live: A full-featured, console-based recovery tool with a focus on accessibility for visually-impaired and blind users. Uses the refractainstaller.

Distributions Based on Devuan

The official Devuan installation options shouldn’t be considered the only way to use Devuan. A number of derivatives have already adopted Devuan as a base. When reviewing Devuan we do recommend taking them into consideration. They harness the power of our base distribution by targeting specific usage which is exactly what we hope to achieve with Devuan. Please go to the forum for Devuan derivatives discussion and support.
