(latest modification: 2018-08-23)


for your "/etc/apt/sources.list", you can use

deb jessie main
deb jessie main

(The 2nd repository -2nd line- contains PocketCHIP's specific packages.)

You should also replace the url in "/etc/apt/preferences" & change it to

Package: *
Pin: origin
Pin-Priority: 1050

If Pico-8/another software crashes with SDL errors after you used this repo, modify '/etc/apt/preferences' as above & sudo apt upgrade should fix it.

(Thanks jfp)
