If you were using my wheezy beta: This release uses a different ABI for faster performance. Sadly this means it’s not possible to upgrade via apt-get update && apt-get upgrade. What you have is fine and will continue to be supported, but you will notice big improvements when you’re able to write a new SD card.
... so your advice is to start using the new image "2012-07-15-wheezy-raspbian"?
A few questions:
- is "raspi-config" in that image? If not, can I just copy "/usr/bin/raspi-config" to the new installation and use it?
- how can you identify the image you're using? My current image's uname says "Linux raspberrypi 3.1.9+ #138 PREEMPT Tue Jun 26 16:27:52 BST 2012 armv6l GNU/Linux", but that will change due to updates? On Ubuntu, there is /etc/lsb-release, but I can't find that.
- technical question: do raspbian and your wheezy use the same repositories?
Thanks. And thank you for your work and help.
