Package: sysvinit-core
Version: 3.06-4devuan3
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

it appears that /sbin/init is linked against
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libpcre2-8.so.0 .

This prevents from booting without an initrd image
when `/` and `/usr` are mounted on different partitions.

An immediate solution is to place libpcre2 in the root
partion `/`, namely in /lib/<triplet> .
