    How to update a Raspberry Pi to the latest fr24feed beta.

    Is there a way to update a Pi to the latest fr24feed beta without a complete re-install that requires re-entering all data such as position, email, share key etc?
    TIA

    You should really have put this in the existing sticky helper thread..

    The last 4 or so versions have an automatic script to do so when one is released by checking every day.

    But same as generic linux commands.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGet/Howto

    sudo apt-get upgrade fr24feed

    Thanks Oblivion. I searched the stickies and I'm sure the posts are there, but they are buried deep and hard to find with a search.

    But to clarify, this only works if you the software list first.

    sudo apt-get update

    And command I gave upgrades all packages (fr24feed ignored)

    To specifically target fr24feed I beleive its

    sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade fr24feed

    I'm not sure if that worked. Port 8754 shows:

    ac_map_size="3072"
    build_arch="armv7l"
    build_flavour="generic"
    build_os="Linux"
    build_revision="master-d6572f3.git"
    build_timetamp="20151214-1410"
    build_version="1.0.16-7"

    The first attempt generated some 404 errors but completed ok. I tried your second post after the first and it ended with "nothing to update". Is that beta up to date? TIA .

    Edit: Stand by, retrying with "sudo apt-get update" first .

    After a couple of painful hours trying to update my Pi to the latest fr24feed I'm still getting this:

    ac_map_size="3072"
    build_arch="armv7l"
    build_flavour="generic"
    build_os="Linux"
    build_revision="HEAD-796dd01.git"
    build_timetamp="20160128-1017"
    build_version="1.0.16-11"

    Is that the latest version or should I spend another hour updating the Pi?
    BTW, I'm just glad it hasn't crashed completely yet as it's headless connection via wifi at the base of the antenna .
    But it was disappointing that it doesn't appear to be the latest beta yet after all that updating.

    In other words completely start over? That's probably the quickest way since updates don't seem to work. But now I wonder about all those updates that didn't seem to help much and wonder if I should rezap the entire Pi.

    No, it answered your question right there.

    Latest version is 1.0.16-11 (2016.01.28)

    You can still download just binaries (deb, tgz), though it's highly recommended to use APT.

    Latest BETA version is 1.0.17-7 (2016-02-25)
