Package repositories

Devuan package repositories are exclusive. Other repositories, including Debian, Ubuntu, Mint etc, should NOT be used directly.

Devuan recommends using the codename (jessie, ascii, beowulf, ceres) rather than the suite (oldstable, stable, testing, unstable) in /etc/apt/sources.list entries. Please go to Devuan Release Information for more details.

Devuan has a network of package repository mirrors in place. The mirror network is accessible using the FQDN “” via http not https. County Codes (CC) are currently deprecated in Devuan.

IMPORTANT NOTE: auto.mirror is also deprecated. Please make sure you have the latest devuan-keyring package with apt-get install devuan-keyring and then point your /etc/apt/sources.list to

Devuan 2.1 ASCII (stable)

deb ascii          main
deb ascii-updates  main
deb ascii-security main

Devuan 1.0.0 Jessie default (oldstable)

deb jessie          main
deb jessie-updates  main
deb jessie-security main

We also provide access to our package repositories via Tor. Install apt-transport-tor and then use the following hidden services:

deb tor+http://devuanfwojg73k6r.onion/merged <release codename>          main
deb tor+http://devuanfwojg73k6r.onion/merged <release codename>-updates  main
deb tor+http://devuanfwojg73k6r.onion/merged <release codename>-security main

All software shipped with Devuan in the main component is free software. But if needed, non-free software is also available. Just add the non-free and contrib component to the appropriate line(s) in /etc/apt/sources'list like this:

deb ascii main non-free contrib

Devuan-specific and forked source code is available on the Devuan Gitlab.
