The absence of full disk encryption makes the installation procedure of MX unusable for me, but I would like to try it anyways as there are interesting things.

Is it possible to 'crossgrade' from a Debian Stretch by just adding the MX Repos?

Thanks!

I did this years ago...
I wrote a very poor "script" that another Mepis forum member greatly improved.
This was obviously many versions ago, but it *did* work.

Yes, we have had people do exactly that in the past successfully.

BTW, Adrian is working hard to have full disk encryption ship with the MX 18 installer.
