Perhaps it is wacky to install from the repository from an earlier version of Debian?  Is that unusual?

As long as it does what you want, that's the main thing.

I did once wreck a Linux install by adding repositories at random to Debian APT's sources.list file. That's what some website SAID to do... Suddenly I realized that my Debian system had become about 50% Ubuntu.

And it stopped doing what I wanted.

I'm fairly new to Linux though i have some background in programming, and I don't fully understand package management.

Been using Debian occasionally since Version 3 somewhere. I've learned some things, but won't claim to know much yet.

It looks like Debian does have ARM packages for LilyPond 2.19.81, although I don't know which ARM your Raspberry Pi needs. (Someday I want to get me one of those.)


No idea how that would turn out.

And if you haven't already seen it, the LilyPond Contributor's Guide has good step-by-step instructions for compiling from source.
