Some updates. I did find some time to upgrade from ASCII to Beowulf Devuan on my other computer. The greatest surprise is "libsystemd0" is now purged out with the latest elogind & co installed. Icing on top as far as me is concerned, I managed to run Gnome 3.30 on Beowulf now without noticeable issues. Udisks works.I used lightdm as display manager. So, the answer seems to me, as of now is Devuan Beowulf is good to go. May be not so good for novices.

By the way, Gentoo CAN use systemd but does not unless you tell. it to. I have used Gentoo pre and post systemd and have never used it with systemd. You can add it to your USE flags (as a '-') so it doesn't get pulled in. Gentoo is a source distro though so make sure you know that going in and be prepared for a long install.

I managed to get Gnome 3.30 run on wayland. Chose gdm3 as display manager and it worked. Only thing is, pulseaudio startup is failing (start-pulseaudio-x11). I added "pulseaudio -D" to the /etc/X11/Xsession.d/55gnome-session_gnomerc file and it works. Yes, I know it's a shoddy fix.

I had sysvrc with the ASCII. Now, using OpenRC init with Devuan Beowulf after the upgrade and it's reasonably fast. The behaviour is predictable. Hope some work will be done to spin off a newbie friendly version based on Devuan Beowulf with OpenRC and Gnome/Cinnamon/KDE-Plasma variants.
