buster-to-devuan
================

This is a script for migrating from a Debian +buster+ system to either
Devuan +beowulf+ or Devuan +chimaera+.

It has two stages:

1. replace the init system to be +sysvinit+ and reboot
2. upgrade to the standard +beowulf+/+chimaera+ distribution and reboot

Copy the script to +/root+, and then run as +root+ in one of four
ways:

1. # ./script.sh 1
2. # DIST=chimaera ./script.sh 1
3. # DE=desktop ./script.sh 1
4. # DIST=chimaera DE=DESKTOP ./script.sh 1

The script performs the 2-stage migration without operator
intervention, with a first stage ending in reboot after having primed
the boot to enter the second stage automatically. It then performs the
second stage, still without operator intervention, and ends with a
subsequent reboot.

The script will migrate the system to +beowulf+ unless +DIST=chimaera+
is set in which case it will migrate to +chimaera+.

The script may uninstall the desktop environment used in +buster+ and
then not install a desktop environment unless +DE=desktop+ is set in
which case it will install +xfce4+ (using +task-xfce-desktop+).

Note that this script only handles systems with Ethernet cable
networking.
