If I would have upgraded, software development would be impossible on my system!
I would get a lot of newer libraries, like
version 2.1.4-0rpi1rpi1 libwebkitgtk-3.0-0 instead of version 1.8.1-3.4+rpi1
Great, I thought, but now comes the REAL PROBLEM:
There are no matching dev files in the collabora repository. In my case that means that the following packages would have been be removed:
Code: Select all
libatk1.0-dev libavahi-glib-dev libcairo2-dev libcv-dev libcvaux-dev libgconf2-dev libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev libglib2.0-dev libglibmm-2.4-dev libgnomevfs2-dev libgstreamer1.0-dev libgtk-3-dev libgtk2.0-dev libhighgui-dev libnotify-dev libopencv-contrib-dev libopencv-dev libopencv-gpu-dev libopencv-highgui-dev libopencv-legacy-dev libopencv-objdetect-dev libpango1.0-dev libpostproc-dev libpulse-dev librsvg2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-sound1.2-dev libsdl1.2-dev libsoup2.4-dev libwebkit-dev libwebkitgtk-3.0-dev libwebkitgtk-dev
It would be nice to have all these new packages for the RPi (only available on Debian Jessie otherwise), but PLEASE NOT WITHOUT THE DEV FILES!
If the Raspberry Pi is meant for learning programming, making this almost impossible just for adding a faster browser (I really would have liked to test that!) is a bad idea. I haven't tested it, but I'm sure installing the web browser would have meant installing the new webkit libraries and loosing the matching dev-files.
