Re: Meh

"Providing you've got /home and as many of /opt, /usr/local and /srv that you use on their own partitions why not go for a clean reinstall?"

Not so much on their own partition, but backed up elsewhere is what I did, on my desktop and remote server. I wrote a script that started with -

debootstrap --arch amd64 --variant=minbase ascii /devuan

Note the minbase, which when combined with 'APT::Install-Recommends "0"; ' makes for a very clean install.
