Direct download from mirrors

Getting started

Package repositories

Devuan package repositories are exclusive. Other repositories, including Debian’s, should NOT be used directly. Devuan recommends using the codename (jessie, ascii, beowulf, ceres) rather than the suite (oldstable, stable, testing, unstable) in sources.list entries.

Devuan has recently put in place a network of package repository mirrors. The mirror network is accessible using the FQDN “” or “{CC}”. To use the Country-Code repositories, change {CC} to the location that you wish to access e.g., ‘us’ for USA, ‘fr’ for France, ‘nl’ for Netherlands etc.

IMPORTANT NOTE: auto.mirror is now deprecated and will be decomissioned. 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 2.0.0 ASCII (stable)

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

Country-code repositories

deb http://{CC} ascii          main
deb http://{CC} ascii-updates  main
deb http://{CC} 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

Source repositories are stored in /etc/apt/sources.list. More detailed information and additional sources options can be found on that page.
