Thank you. Works like a charm. :) So, Raspbian is also no own OS or distributian. It's just Debian. ;)

At least Raspbian is an own APT repository. But yeah it's nearly a 100% copy simply build for armv6hf instead of armv7hf + the other architectures that Debian supports.

So yes DietPi is build up onto the Raspbian repository for RPi and on the Debian repository for all other devices.

which will change with upcoming Raspi OS 64bit where RPi Foundation will switch to standard Debian repository. Isn't it?
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Exactly, although it runs only on RPi 2 v1.2 and up, so RPi Zero, RPi 1 and my RPi 2 v1.1 need to stay on Raspbian :(.

I was thinking of creating a Debian-based ARMv7 image to use on RPi 2 v1.1 (and up, if for some reason x64 is not wanted/possible), the only real ARMv7 RPi model. There should be minor benefits, e.g. ARMv7 binaries are usually a bid smaller compared to ARMv6 binaries due to thumb-2: https://kmittal82.wordpress.com/2012/02 ... mbthumb-2/
This means in theory faster loading, fewer memory/cache usage. Additionally Debian repo means slightly faster package updates, security+updates+backports suites and when an issue occurs, we don't need to test on Debian first to rule out a Raspbian build issue ;).
