The best thing to do with Devuan is to use a graphic expert install. The 
only time you need to use the terminal is basically first run, where you 
edit the /etc/apt/sources.list (commenting out the "CD" and adding the 
trinity repositories). Then you run "sudo su apt-get update" and "# 
apt-get install <your additional software packages>. Assuming that you 
use sudo like I do, rather than root. Restart and you are off and running.
