Devuan Jessie works well but is based on Debian Jessie which is moving
into LTS.

Devuan Ascii works well and is based on Debian Stretch and is well

Devuan Beowulf is in development based on Debian Buster in development.

I don't know what you mean by "Devuan Jessie-Beowulf merged version".  I
would not recommend Jessie as it is moving to LTS.  I would not recommend
Beowulf at this time except to bleeding edge users who are comfortable
fixing any problems they might encounter.  I would suggest you start with
a working Devuan Ascii before thinking about TDE PSB.


Sorry, that's totally my mistake. 

I've been running Debian for about a year now, but I've only been running 
Devuan for about a week. I am not familiar with what Devuan names correspond 
to the naming in Debian. I know that Devuan Ascii corresponds to Debian 
Stretch, and somewhere I thought I remembered that Beowulf corresponded to 
Jessie. Apparently they did not change the name for Jessie?  

At the time I was only sporadically online, had no list at hand to check, and 
no browsers installed so that I could look it up online. 

In any case, I believe I have solved my network issues (or at least found a 
workaround). There are some deeper issues that I will bring up in another
