sir fred,
thank you!
please, can you post just one proof why
euclid3.iso is not ok?
you do not like apt-source list...
just , take from debiandog and repalace it.
but, op.system is perfect!

I said already in euclid3 thread, mixing oldstable (Jessie) and stable (Stretch) is bad practice.
The binaries and libraries included in euclid3 are from Jessie, in sources.list it says Stretch.
It would be OK if the ISO contains binaries and libraries from Stretch.
Proof? Well... for example: Everytime you install a program it is going to upgrade all dependencies to Stretch, which is a real waste of space.
Or: Do a "apt-get upgrade", and you will be confronted with a BIG list of "upgradable" packages. (all upgrading to Stretch)
Sure you can edit sources.list and make it all Jessie, but you cannot expect to do that from an average user or newcomer.
Hope you understand what I'm saying, I know language is a barrier.

But this is all off-topic, sorry guys !

Fred

thank you fred!

all great linux op.systems -debian,ubuntu, mxlinux...-
have functions- update and upgrade...
debiandog can not do the same?!
what about function "generate source list"
in great linux distros?
we can not take a new source list from debian or ubuntu?

Mistfire just released a new version of X-Slacko-Slim, http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=1003033#1003033. The announcement brought it to my attention. Sorry I didn't think of X-Slacko Slim before. To quote Joe E. Brown in "Some Like it Hot", nobody's perfect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYUfPTeE0DM
