Does anyone know if it is possible to install a devuan gnu/linux ?

Idk about devuan. Probably more luck with artix linux (manjaro openrc's successor) since it is more active.

If you are only interested in the systemd aspect, then you are lucky. The preinstalled OS is Debian 9. I don't know about Debian 10, but it's quite easy to run Debian 9 without systemd. Just uninstall it and apt-get automatically pulls in sys-v. The only remains is the systemd shim layer libsystemd0.

On my intel laptop, I run Debian 9 with sys-v and it works like a charm. I expect this to be true for the Pinebook Pro, although I have not tried it.

Has anyone had any luck with Artix on the PBP?

Short answer: yes. There's a thread in the tutorial section of this forum (and actually, a number of them across the web) explaining how to convert a Debian install into Devuan. I've done it successfully with the original (Mr Fixit) Debian image, but don't see why it wouldn't work with a newer build.

You can simply Replace systemd as your init system and leave systemd in place to appease app dependencies (apt-get install sysvinit-core sysv-rc-conf - this automatically de-installs systemd-sysv. I believe this is basically what MX-Linux does). Or you can wipe systemd completely and switch to the Devuan repositories (this is a bit more involved. Best to read through the tutorials)

hack danielt's debian installer and use a devuan debootstrap instead.
