I see from DistroWatch (June 18th) that Devuan 2.0.0 ASCII has been released so I thought I would see if I could make a DevuanPup using Wiak's makepup script.

My computer has 8 GB RAM and an AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual core processor 64+ and a WDC WD10EZEX-00B Hard Drive.

I have several frugally Puppies installed but for this experiment chose my day-to-day one i.e. Xenialpup64 7.5.
I created a new directory "Make_a_Puppy" and cd into it.
Doing ./makepup -g brought up the gui to set up the configuration.
The first box allows you to select one of two woof branches, testing or rationalise. I do not know what either of these provide but left the default selection namely testing. For the next three boxes i selected:
target architecture 3:x56_64
distro base 2:devuan
release version 1:DevuanAscii
The next box was problematic. None of the huge kernels mentioned devuan in the title so I selected 25:huge-4.4.70-s64-700.tar.bz2
From the Advanced tab I selected devx and unticked -k before clicking
Build your Pup
The script ran and ultimately produced many files and directories but one of the directories was woof-out_x86_64_x86_64_ubuntu_trusty64 containing, one level further down, a tahr64-6.0.6.iso

What did I do wrong?
What is the most appropriate woof-CE branch and are there more than the two offered?
What is the correct huge-kernel choice?

I think if you use regular woof-CE instructions it will work, and it will automatically grab a kernel built from dpup stretch during ./3builddistro-Z. It sounds like wiak's script is somehow out-of-sync with the choices in woof-CE (which I think someone reported before), might make more sense to report this issue in wiak's actual makepup thread so they see it.

There is no 64-bit devuan build specified in woof-ce - only 32-bit.....

https://github.com/puppylinux-woof-CE/woof-CE/tree/master/woof-distro/x86

master should now be the branch to use....
