Is the new Raspbian image already on the download page? I only see the older Raspbian image from March 2016.

Same with

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
… list zero updates for me so far.

Is there a command to see if the Pi runs the recent Jessie? I know "uname -a", however it lists the kernel (4.1.19-v7) but not the word "Jessie". :-)

Thanks Fruitoftheloom, now the download page does allow to download the new version indeed.

Anybody already did an "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" ?

Tried it, but the repo has not been updated yet.
Just try again later today or so.

Have to try again later?

You have to run 'sudo apt-get update' first.
I just installed it, so it's available now.

Apart from the desktop stuff there are some useful changes 'under the hood'.

Kernel + modules are split off from raspberrypi-bootloader into a separate package (raspberrypi-kernel)
And there is a new package with the kernel headers: raspberrypi-kernel-headers.
raspberrypi-bootloader now only contains bootcode.bin, start*.elf and fixup*.dat

Yes, I did that. The other 2 items installed ok, but not piclone (even tried it on it's own).

LIVE UPDATE: Done it now!

Well spotted. The kernel also works with dkms now, so out-of-tree modules are easy to keep up to date.

Another real gem, tucked away at the end of the write-up:
When flashing a new Raspbian image, the file system will automatically be expanded to use all the space on the card when it is first booted.

Is it possible to disable Wlan and Bluetooth on a Pi3 with this new Raspbian release?

Or do I still have to use the previous apporach which works well but is uneasy to handle:
/etc/modprobe.d/raspi-blacklist.conf

Code: Select all

# Wlan
blacklist brcmfmac
blacklist brcmutil

# Bluetooth
blacklist btbcm
blacklist hci_uart

We have a raspberrypi-kernel-headers package now ?? :o
• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.
• Don't like to search the forum BEFORE posting 'cos it's useless ? Try googling : yoursearchtermshere site:raspberrypi.org

Unfortunately, it has a huge number of files and dpkg will calculate an md5 digest for each of them, so it takes forever to install.

I googled that, it's a most welcome addition.

Note that raspberrypi-kernel-headers would need to be installed first. Otherwise, dkms will try to pull in the wrong headers package.

I am already running 4.4.9, is there an "apt-get install" just for the bt (replace blueman), and sd copier? I do not want to do a dist-upgrade.

I think you can do that with just update / upgrade and then install piclone

Why not exactly? The theme bug you reported a while bag has been fixed.

When I "sudo poweroff" the Pi3, in contrast to former Raspbians the green (SD?) LED really turns off after some blinking, leaving only the red power LED on.

That's nice.

I am on the rpi-update (4.4.9), is the dist-upgrade the exact same?
