what is the right way to update Bananian?
In the sources list i see:
  1. deb wheezy main non-free contrib
  2. deb-src [url] wheezy main non-free contrib

  3. deb wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
  4. deb-src wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
Copy the Code
Normally on Debian i do:
  1. # aptitude update
  2. # aptitude upgrade
  3. # aptitude full-upgrade
Copy the Code
Is that save without breaking something?

That is my first Pi and i wonder what the Raspbian repository that the Raspberry has is good for?
Doesn't Debian not take the armhf stuff automatically from the normal repository?
This is absolutely safe. We are using the official Debian repositories.

Use "bananian-update" to update all Bananian components like Kernel, u-boot, configs, etc...

Is there some documentation on which configs the bananian-update script touches?
I would really be interested in knowing what I can safely change / touch without risking losing my changes during an update.

Thank you,

bananian-update will show on overview which files are changes/deleted while updating before the upgrade itself starts. You have to confirm to continue.
If possible we do not replace any files but use sed to modify the existing files.

If you are unsure, just check our GitHub repository where you can find the Shell scripts and see what exactly happens:

You always have to look at the previous version. So if you want to know what's happening while upgrading to 15.01, see folder 141101 or 141102 (because update was possible from both versions directly to 15.01
