Just as with non-live Debian systems, mixing sid with stable is not
supported. The correct approach here is to use a stable backport. If no
backport exists, you will need to backport the packages you need
yourself. You can also make requests for missing backports on their
mailing list. See:


If you use backports with your Debian Live configuration, you'll need to
either place the desired debs in config/chroot_local-packages/ or else
add the source under config/chroot_sources/ and configure pinning for
the packages you want from backports as per the manual. See:
