Raspbian Stretch 2018-11-13 Repository Problem

Mon Dec 03, 2018 12:19 am

Hi All,

Hope you are fine. I downloaded from https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspbian_latest, then burned it, installed it.

Then i updated it via apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade, apt-get upgrade and rpi-update.

I was trying to install Tor and realized it's version. It's version is 0.2.9.16-1. I checked from https://dist.torproject.org/ and as i see it is too old version.

Then i looked my sources.list file:

deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi

I checked from this website https://dist.torproject.org/ and the latest stable version is 0.3.4.9

I used apt-get update tor --reinstall command for reinstall and fetch new version but it installed again 0.2.9.16-1, i couldn't understand.

Could you please help me about this issue?

First and foremost rpi-update install a testing kernel / firmware and has not been recommended for ages, as it does and can break Raspbian Stretch. The following is sufficient:

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade

Regards the TOR package Raspbian Stretch follows Debian Stretch ARMHF so unless you want to compile a newer version yourself you will get version 0.2.9.16-1

https://packages.debian.org/stretch/tor

Thank you for your interest.

Is there a way to downgrade original kernel?

And as i understand Raspbian Stretch follows Debian Stretch ARMHF and stable version is 0.2.9.16-1, right? This means i shouldn't compile newer version of Tor.
