Oh hell yes! Devuan has Raspberry Pi 3b arm64 images @ files.roundr.devuan.org/devuan I use Devuan on my Thinkpad, and like it quite a bit.

@jynx TIL that a 64bit OS on an RPi 3b+ is just not a performant choice. This conclusion was reached while running st on ratpoison and having cd take 8 seconds. I think that I shall reserve this experiment for an RPi 4 (sometime in the future, no current plans to buy). Also, firefox ESR 60 on Devuan never successfully attached to browsh. Nothing ventured, nothing something something...

@jynx And what is the root of this behavior? An unoptimized kernel, VESA instead of a normal video driver for X, a journaling file system on SD?

@yrabbit likely muliple of these... cueing up my collection of *install gentoo* memes... I was surprised by this behavior as well. As I need to wake up early in the morning I threw in the towel. I may give gentoo a shot on RPoP (RPi 3b) on some other day and see what I think.

@jynx Hrm, my experience with devuan today has been that it's reasonably performant, no slower than raspbian. It's looking like it will replace my Ubuntu arm64 deployments in the near future.
