Re: Cannot add ppa

Isn't there some warning about not making a frankendebian?

Although, debian and devuan repos are sometimes compatible... but combining even one ubuntu with devuan repos sounds like its just asking for trouble

Re: Cannot add ppa

We're trying to rebuild the package on a Devuan beowulf base and so avoid creating a FrankenDevuan by adding the Ubuntu repositories.

Having said that I've given up on this. Sorry OP.

Such a warning exists. Here he is

https://wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian

And here's a quote

Repositories that can create a FrankenDebian if used with Debian Stable:

    Debian testing release (currently bullseye)

    Debian unstable release (also known as sid)

    Ubuntu, Mint or other derivative repositories are not compatible with Debian!
    Ubuntu PPAs and other repositories created to distribute single applications

I had thought so...
