Problem not in the specific distribution kit, and that with video sis at all times there were problems and decisions always were vague.
If the one who gave to you the job in it in course he is a good judge of perversions (good jobs for practice) and let  shares with you secrets and if not in course that send it far away.
p.s. Google everything that was on a subject sis and linux, for example https://habr.com/post/116380/
