I just bought a Raspberry Pi 4 B and immediately proceeded by installing Ubuntu 19 on it which quickly revealed to be a mistake Not only the people at Ubuntu forgot to add an installer (it just boots to the shell and that's it) leaving me to try and guess how to configure the keyboard, locale, network, timezone etc.. but also because I soon realized that the vcgencmd stuff was missing.
Eventually I was able to compile raspberrypi/userland from github (with a fair share of pain) and eventually I got it working (and rpi-eeprom also).
Now, despite being extremely satisfied because the system is working and my application is running without a hitch I would like to know which firmware version is installed on my board. This is because I read that there is a firmware update version that improves thermal performance.
When I run
I get an hex number: 9f8431fb7839c7f00f52b81f5822ddab2b31d0db
Code: Select all
Is there a way to determine which specific firmware version this corresponds? Or should I run another command to get it?
