No, I had no intention of doing any of those things, for I know not what they are or why I would need or want to be doing them. Maybe I should have just stuck with the original idea of installing from Debian distro. I'm exploring the phreaknet option now. If I come up with a running system, I'm just going to leave it that way and work with it as it is.

Well, my first question would be "are you intending to use Asterisk Realtime

If you are, then you do need to install a few more packages on your Debian
system, but if not, then there is no reason to pay any attention at all to
anything to do with Alembic, Realtime, SQL etc.
