Subject description: apt-get for certain packages not found for puppy derrivitive
 

I need to install aptitude on "fatdog" so I can download special packages for compiling android. I've used gnome-linux mint and also used debian-xfce but need something with a smaller foot print as all the tools I need are probably 4 gigs or so. Is there a way to add apt-get and create a "sources.list" to pull from? I've also tried damsmall linux, tiny core, and slitaz but all of those can't use the apt-get command. I heard from a friend that puppy was debian based? Anyway, can someone please help me get straight on this? Crying or Very sad

Short answer,Puppy is not Debian based. Beyond that,I'm unaware of anyone getting apt-get working correctly in any Puppy.
