Updating my RPi to Jessie

Hopefully there is a newer version of kodi…

basically following the following guide with a few additions and without the X11 stuff: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=121880. There is only kodi on my RPi2 which I do start directly, not from a WM.

So basically just to make sure I’ve got the latest stuff in wheezy

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade

to make sure I’ll have a clean install


replacing wheezy with jessie

cd /etc/apt/
sed -i 's_wheezy_jessie_g' sources.list
cd sources.list.d
sed -i 's_wheezy main_jessie main ui_g' raspi.list
rm collabora.list
apt-get update
apt-get -y upgrade

one two or three cups of tea later…

apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get autoremove --purge # careful with this one

Possible problems

I had trouble with the mirror, hence I replaced the raspbian mirror:

#eb http://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/ jessie main contrib non-free rpi
deb http://mirror.ox.ac.uk/sites/archive.raspbian.org/archive/raspbian jessie main contrib non-free rpi

Another problem I had is caused by the netboot stuff I am using; on every mount the filesystem is mounted readonly

To solve this, I had to add „rw“ before „rootwait“ so that my cmdline.txt looks like this (only in case you are doing netboot!):

dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 ip=dhcp console=ttyAMA0,115200 console=tty1 root=/dev/nfs rootfstype=nfs nfsroot= elevator=deadline rw rootwait
