I was using Arch until the launch of Raspian and have a couple of questions to ask the forum.
Does either apt-get update or apt-get upgrade upgrade the firmware for the Pi. Like pacman command does under Arch? If not what should I be doing to ensure I keep my Rasbian firmware up to date?
On another note Ive got a wifi dongle from the supported hardware list but I don't clearly understand what I need to do next on Raspian to get the dongle working. There countless forum entries and sites offering help but to be honest I could do with good pointer that covers a novice using Rasbian.
Thanks in advance.
