With the update of Debian to Stretch to stable, is there a date for Raspbian to update to Stretch or anywhere I can find information about the release cycle.

Thx

The Raspberry Pi Foundation manages their own version of Chromium with patches for ARMv6, so anything that debian is doing doesn't make a different on the version. The version used right now is still stable and works well, so there isn't much reason to get a new version.

Hi,

updated sources.list and raspi.list to " stretch " but seems armhf packages main repo is still not available from archive.raspberry.org ?

# cat sources.list
deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi

# cat raspi.list
deb http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/ stretch main ui


Err:4 http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian stretch/main armhf Packages
404 Not Found


W: The repository 'http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian stretch Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
E: Failed to fetch http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/d ... f/Packages 404 Not Found
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.


Also what about the backports, however that is more a debian thing ....
Would expect

# Backports repository
deb http://ftp.debian.ro/debian/ stretch-backports main contrib non-free

But that still results in : " E: The value 'stretch-backports' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources "


cheers

Don't do that. It won't work. Raspbian has Stretch. raspberrypi.org doesn't yet. Change that line back to jessie and the updates will work (apart from some problems with various Raspberry Pi specific programs)

Does anyone have an idea when Raspbian based on Debian Stretch might become available? I desparately waiting for nftables (which I think is included in Stretch, replacing IPtables)...

When it's ready.
But
To quote from an official source..
...sometime over the Summer
Which for us is a slight pain as within the next two weeks would be ace so we can prep our schools SD cards with a nice new image ready from the new term after the summer.

So we'll just have to fit it in when we come back in September.

There's now a stretch repo at http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/. I used it to upgrade my Pi Zero W just now and it seems to be working fine (WiFi and Bluetooth both working, which was my main concern).

Use at your own risk.

Anyone already upgraded to stretch with Jessie Lite? The lack of desktop environment and Pi specific applications and patches should reduce the amount of things that can go wrong significantly.

I upgraded my (headless) Pi Zero W yesterday. Initially I saw nothing wrong, but then I noticed a weird problem: my WiFi would hang as soon as I unplugged the USB cable that I was using for a serial terminal. And would resume as soon as I plugged it in again. I haven't tried reverting the WiFi firmware to an older version or otherwise debugging this yet, but I did notice some syslog messages from the dwc2 driver each time I removed the USB cable.

Guess it makes sense to wait till most issues are ironed out. Don't really have the ability to reflash mine if something goes wrong :lol:

That does not sound like it could be caused by the stretch upgrade.

Why do you say that? The upgrade included new raspberrypi-kernel and firmware-brcm80211 packages, for example.

Re: Raspbian::Stretch

The kernel package is the same as in jessie. The only change to firmware-brcm8021 is that it uses wifi firmware from upstream and adds a file debian folk have forgotten to add. It should behave exactly the same way as the jessie version, unless the firmware file itself is somehow bad.

Are the ethernet drivers stable though? Mine only acts as a server with ethernet connection...

Just upgraded my colocated Pi 2. As long as you stick to the default image as much as possible it seems to be pretty safe :) . Cant say much about Bluetooth and Wifi but ethernet is good to go.

I have the same question - I was looking for Raspbian Stretch since I (naively) assumed that nftables will be included since it is included in Debian Stretch.

I searched around a lot but could not find anything on the topic, i.e. why nftables seems to be part of Debian Stretch but not Raspbian Stretch.

Anyone who knows more about this (why nftables was removed and if it will be included at some point)?
