devuan testing using debootstrap

1.prepare disk  

doas fdisk -l  find available disks name : ex sdX,nvmeX,etc

doas cfdisk /dev/sdx

mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdxx

mount ext4 part to /mnt


2.find needed release codename

here stable at time is Chimaera


3.get debootstrap script

 ls -la /usr/share/debootstrap/scripts/  to search  Chimaera 

if not available pull ceres as Chimaera since all other codenames of devuan are symlinks of ceres in gitlab


 doas cp  ceres /usr/share/debootstrap/scripts/Chimaera


doas debootstrap --arch amd64 chimaera /mnt




mount --rbind /dev /mnt/dev && mount --make-rslave /mnt/dev
mount --rbind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts && mount --make-rslave /mnt/dev/pts
mount --rbind /proc /mnt/proc && mount --make-rslave /mnt/proc
mount --rbind /sys /mnt/sys && mount --make-rslave /mnt/sys

doas chroot /mnt
