Subject: network-manager doesn't install, depends on libpam-systemd

Package: network-manager
Source: network-manager
Version: 1.6.2-3
Severity: serious

Dear Maintainer,

Attempting to install network-manager from ascii fails because it
depends on libpam-systemd, and libpam-systemd requires systemd.

Hi,

You might be interested in the network-manager patches, originally meant
to be used with the Debian source (stretch).

Thanks Edoardo. The patch applied fine, but needed a little bit of
stitching around to remove a few more systemd deps. This is now
solved. network-manager 1.6.2-3+devuan1 is now in ascii. Please help
testing it out.

I am closing this one, since the new network-manager is now
installable in ascii.
