Bananian

Bananian with Debian Testing available?

9 3227
To work around an issue with Owncloud, I need to upgrade to lighttpd >= 1.4.33, which is only available in Debian Testing, not in Stable, not at Debian-Backports.

I  tried several methods to install or build lighttpd from Testing but ended up with unmet dependencies or lots of unwanted upgrades and a very mixed system I don't like.

Is there a Bananian available based on Debian Testing or did someone managed to consistently convert the whole system to Testing while keeping the Bananian kernel?

TIA

Hi,

simple add
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free and
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
to sources.list and make
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade -t testing

I did it and it works.

Regards

Robert

Thanks.

I tried this on a Debian Wheezy Olimex A20 and it failed upgrading udev due to missing kernel features. Great to know it works on Bananian.

Regards,

Upgrading to Jessie works but just a few remarks:
- You lose upgrade compatibility (using bananian-update to get the next Bananian release)
- Bananian will move to Jessie/8 when it has been officially released. We are in contact with an Debian ARM kernel maintainer.
- In your sources.list use "jessie" instead of "testing". Otherwise you will never be on a stable branch again.

PS: This ticket added Jessie support to our kernel and was fixed in 14.11: https://dev.bananian.org/view.php?id=53

Why don't you use Apache? On my Banana PI, I use Apache to run both  OwnCloud and Ampache music server, and both run perfectly well.

It's just a matter of habit. I was running a Seagate Dockstar and a Raspberry Pi before where memory footprint did matter.

BTW, there is a patch (http://doc.owncloud.org/server/6 ... llation_source.html, Section on lighttpd) which solved my problem without upgrading to testing.

Since Debian 8 is now official out, what is the current status of Bananian running officially on Jessie?

If you want to stay on Wheezy, which is recommended in some complex install cases, change

stable to oldstable

https://github.com/igorpecovnik/ ... sources.list.wheezy


and do:

apt-get update


once again.

We are working with codenames in sources.list (wheezy). No need to change anything in Bananian

Regarding Jessie/Debian 8:
