wheezy distribution gone

Fri May 17, 2019 11:13 am

Hello everyone,

just noticed today that the wheezy distribution (http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/) is gone. Has it been archived somewhere?
Please help, I still need wheezy dist as I am in the need to build raspbian wheezy packages.
Thanks in advance

Hi,

thank you but I am looking for the package repository, not images. It seems that the wheezy distribution/repository is gone from all servers/mirrors.
Can anyone tell me how to find a raspbian wheezy repo?

Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.

You might, possibly, find it on the 'way back machine'.

If you are still running wheezy, you might want to consider making your software work on stretch.
Wheezy is very old and there have been a huge number of security updates since it went EOL, several of them critical.

Or wait a bit for when Buster comes out, depending on what your setup is doing.
Though I think the changes *if any* from stretch to buster are much easier than from wheezy to anything.
