Undertake a net-install and just install what you require:

/var/lib/dpkg/status keeps track of the packages installed on your system.
If you really lost that file, you're basically screwed and you better start over.

SAMBA in Jessie?
I am trying to set up samba in Jessie but I cannot make it work according to the webpages I have found to help me set it up.
Please give advice on how it works under systemd on Jessie (installation, configuration, start, stop).
I need the share to handle development source files.
EDIT:
Turns out tha samba was not installed even though it did exist as directory entries and the sample smb.conf file was where it was supposed to.
After doing:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install samba samba-common-bin
everything started working.

Is the image available corrupt then? I've downloaded it three times, using both the torrent and the mirror links and I get the same every time I write the OS to the micro sd card.

PPTP VPN Client setup in Jessie?
Asked before but never got a working system. Has anyone here managed to get a connection from Jessie to a corporate network using a PPTP VPN client?
Tutorials on the net for Debian are no good because they refer to GUI tools that are simply non-existing in Raspbian Jessie. :cry:
The steps I have taken did not lead to a working connection; I can elaborate if someone here is "in the know" and can help.
I used this:
http://devtidbits.com/2013/02/19/using- ... pberry-pi/
but it does not describe handling of errors. All of my connection attempts failed.

You don't need a headers package, just pull a copy of the 4.1.10+ source tree.
Not 'just'.
You need to set a couple of things up before that's usable so you can compile kernel modules.
And then you still haven't satisfied the linux-headers package dependency of dkms.
And yes, you can work around that too. But I doubt 'average Joe' knows how to do that all.
I agree, intel arch ist much easier. I did proceed by building a kernel (https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... uilding.md), and got a brand new kernel (4.1.10), but it was still the same with xtables-addons-common (or dkms). So I decided to go on my own, and compiled myself xtables-addons source. This last about one hour to build the new kernel (thanks to -j4), and few minutes to get the xtables-addons working. I'm just asking me why the distribution is almost unsuable in my case?

I would try on a different SD card. Note Jessie requires an 8GB SD card
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.

The sha-1 checksum matches so I know it downloaded fine.

I'll try a different one but this particular card has been running fine in my Pi for the last 6 months on Wheezy.

I must be doing something wrong as every time I try to run one of my install scripts that worked with Wheezie, I get an error:

Code: Select all

E: Package 'samba' has no installation candidate
I get the same type of error when trying to install iceweasel, xrdp, terminator, etc. What have I overlooked?

Then you need to upgrade your install scripts to work with jessie ...

... and if you want others to help you with that, it may be an idea to post them or when they are public, point to them.

I have a couple of issues with Jessie:

My RTC no longer works, I am using this setup http://www.cjemicros.co.uk/rpi-rtc which works fine with Wheezy.

Also I can't set hdmi_group=2 and hdmi_mode=14 in /boot/config.txt and get a 840x480 display, just a hi-res one out of focus, again works fine in Wheezy.

Any answers ?

The RTC stuff should be done in /boot/config.txt. Read /boot/overlays/README for the full details.

Are you editing the right config? Use the NOOBS recovery system config editor (by holding [SHIFT] during boot).

Yes right config as far as I know, I use Raspbian not NOOBS. All works fine with Wheezy.

My RTC set-up worked with Wheezy.

Code: Select all

dtoverlay=i2c-rtc,ds1307
If it doesn't work that's a feature of the kernel you're running, not the OS that it loads with /sbin/init.

I wouldn't consider that a kernel issue. I think it's best sorted on the forum in a separate thread with a clear description of all the steps taken and content of files modified.

What else do you need to know, l've detailed above what l've done?

Any thoughts on the hdmi mode issue?

Very unlikely to be directly related to Jessie. It will be a firmware issue (that the upgrade to Jessie happened to update).
Create a github issue and we can do some troubleshooting.
