Does that mean every time it breaks, you will reinstall your system and then install the latest and greatest kernel from a .deb file again, with the necessary importing of gcc and cpp from buster repo?
That's my understanding of your comments:...anyway i use minimal space for mxlinux (16gb of my 120gb ssd), freshly install with every beta/new release. fiber broadband take only a few minutes to download, upgrading with deb files takes about a couple of minutes instead of two hours for make install from kernel tar files
no, does not break. no problems at all, even update r normal. i do fresh installation because it is much easier and fast than iso.zsync.
