B2: Debian removed jessie powerpc repos - what now?

Post by odoepner » 11 Apr 2019, 20:33

I have a bubba2 with a working debian jessie.

But now I cannot apt install any packages anymore since Debian dropped jessie powerpc from security.debian.org and official debian mirrors.

Is there anywhere an apt source of the last state of jessie powerpc, frozen in time, so to speak?

I learned that powerpc lives on at debian ports, but only for unstable.

The following works but I don't want to step into the risky world of unstable:
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-ports unstable main
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-ports unreleased main

Please let me know if you have any idea if anyone has cloned the oldstable jessie powerpc repos.

Debian keeps archives of their old non-supported releases, even after they're removed from the regular repositories. You should be able to use the archives as sources for apt.

https://www.debian.org/distrib/archive

I'm sure you're already aware, but you should obviously not expose your bubba to the internet while using unsupported software. If you do, you'll expose the server to exploits and abuse.
