I am working on basing a new OS off of Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic, and in order to properly have the OS be recognized as a new distribution, I had to change /etc/lsb-release. In order to have it use PPAs, I had to add a file to /usr/share/python-apt/templates. This got it to add the PPAs, but, it defaults to Eoan repositories when I attempt to add PPAs.

You can see what I have in my GitHub repository here.

Is there some other file I need to add? Am I formatting the *.info file wrong? Is it something else?

Thanks in advance!

  • Since this is a question about your own Ubuntu derivative, which is of course not an official one, the question is not about Ubuntu and thus off-topic. – fkraiem Jul 14 at 19:05
  • @fkraiem I copied my question to the Unix & Linux Stack Exchange. Hopefully it will be more on topic there. I will leave this question up, but add a link to the new question in an edit shortly. I will then mark it as closed (once I figure out how to do that XD). – Batcastle Jul 14 at 20:13
