When I go to raspi-config there is no overclock feature, or update. All I see is Info, Configure_keyboard, Change_Pass, Change_Locale, Change_Timezone, SSH, Boot_Behaviour.
Im not sure whats wrong. Its running off a 80GB external HDD, With Raspbian installed. 8GB PNY premium SD card.

Not sure how to replicate it? Just started it and there is options missing from the menu. It showed up on all the other SD cards I run. I haven't done anything different on how I installed it.

Thanks

Hey man, If you are still having this issue, I found that I didn't have the correct repositories listed in my /etc/apt/sources.list file. I added this to the file and then it updated fine!

deb http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian wheezy main contrib non-free

Hope it works!

You add the two lines:
Code: Select all
deb http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian wheezy main contrib non-free


to the file /etc/apt/sources.list on your RPi.

Where did the image come from was it pre-loaded?

Have you tried

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install raspi-config libraspberrypi*

reboot and see what is there.

sudo apt-get install raspi-config libraspberrypi*

Berryboot won't have an overclock setting in raspi-config. I forget how to do it would have to read up on it. It boots differently than the main OS by itself so there is a way just not in raspi-config

The other SD cards I have that I installed using BerryBoot had the Raspi-Config in them, with the overclock feature.

Hi, I have installed raspbian and openelec with "berryboot-20121230" but when I type sudo rasp-config there's no option to overclock, raspi-update, etc...

Firmware has to be updated through the Berryboot GUI, not using rpi-update.

If you know what you are doing, you can set overclock settings through the Berryboot GUI (advanced settings -> config.txt tab). I would not recommend anyone to overclock though.

No need to change memory split manually anymore, Long live CMA.


I would ping him in that thread or rename this if possible as it won't possibly hit his attention. But it looks like if it was there it isn't anymore.

Would this allow me to overclock without voiding my warranty?

I want to use the Raspi-config Overclocking so it does not void the warranty. But that option is not on the config! But if I use another one of my SD cards I have Rasbian installed on The options is there. Im trying to find out how to get that option back.

Try:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get -y remove raspi-config
sudo apt-get -y install raspi-config

Even when apt-get stated that I had the latest version of raspi-config, it was running an older version. The remove and install seems to correct the problem for me. I also used berryboot, so this should help you...

This worked for me... Using 03/2013 berryboot and 12/2012 raspbian distro. Thanks for the tip!

You'll have also to mount manually your boot partition in Berryboot prior using raspi-config, so it can write to /boot/config.txt
Code: Select all
mount -t auto /dev/mmcblk0p1 /boot
