# as root
mkdir /mnt/mkrefpup && cd /mnt/mkrefpup
wget -O- https://ptpb.pw/o17C > mkfreemos01.fig ; cat mkfreemos01.fig |  
sha256sum | grep  

requires fig (a free software python 2 script, link in source)

this automates removing systemd as trisquels init. it takes out every package  
that explicitly depends on it. mkfreemos does not automate its own  
installation, youll need genisoimage and syslinux (at least isohybrid) and  
squashfs tools.

the primary goal was simply to remove systemd and still boot. i was hoping  
for a graphical environment on the first try, but even startx icewm (it  
replaces mate with icewm) doesnt work. i havent taken more than a couple  
minutes to try to figure out why. but this does boot into trisquel (it also  
has a working apt system and network, at least in qemu) and lets you use the  
system. it doesnt automatically remove the files in /lib/systemd though you  
can remove those as well (i havent tried removing the subfolders, that  
probably wont work.)
