    i'm curious if it's possible for the pyra to do a debian rolling release based on testing by setting the source lists to "testing" instead of "stretch". or are there some pyra-specific things that are specific to stretch?

    if it is possible, is it recommended? i'm completely new to debian, though i've been using it implicitly for a while (via ubuntu). i'm considering installing it as a rolling release on an old laptop for testing purposes.

    Technically, changing from strech to "testing" or even to "unstable/sid" is completly doable. You'll just need to pin down a few package that come from here (like fbturbo).

    You might face issues with dbps though as they will be only tested on strech (even if, most of the time you'll be able to fix the problem with a symlink)
     
    ible and shadow.8 like this.

    neat, writing from my "rolling debian testing" laptop now. i just changed "buster" to "testing" everywhere in /etc/apt/sources.list, even though it says to remove the security lines at this site:
    https://wiki.debian.org/DebianTesting
    i.e., i kept lines like this in:
    Code:
    deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security testing/updates main contrib non-free
    
    and these appear to be valid distributions at the http://security.debian.org/debian-security site. this site had them kept in:
    http://www.binarytides.com/enable-testing-repo-debian/
    that one also explains how to pin repositories, so i'll use that for the pyra specific stuff. thanks!
