Re: Raspbian "testing" repository

AFAIK "testing" = "wheezy" at the moment . So you can use either and they should be exactly the same (until "wheezy" becomes the stable version). Also AFAIK The reason for both is you can choose to follow either a "named" version or a "categorised" version (eg: stable, testing etc) see: debian.org f...

Re: Kernel Packaging

You might be interested in the info about kernel 3.2.0 + headers in the raspbian repo.

in this thread: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 66&t=18727
See 3rd post (and 8th post contains a tip on getting it to work)

I've been running with this for a few days now with no problems.

Re: Upstart issues

Assuming your OS is some form of debian, why not use init.d scripts?

see /etc/init.d/README to get started.

BTW

Code: Select all

apt-cache search 3.2.0-4
might make it easier to spot!

Or even better use synaptic (a nice GUI frontend to apt)

Re: Kernel 3.6x and ipt_LOG

AFAIK the raspbian repositories (non foundation) intend to follow the official debian repositories as closely as possible, thus you will find a kernel package for 3.2.0 in the raspbian repo and the iptables package from the raspbian repo will work with this. The foundation supply their own kernel (3...

Re: Kernel Packaging

Plugwash,

That is a real shame. I would have thought "the relevant people in the raspberry pi foundation" would be beating at your door.

Perhaps they think a raspberry pi specific front end to apt (aka "The Pi Store") is more important (maybe that'll get some attention for you!)
