Upgrade from Occidentalis v.1 to v.2

by dca01 on Wed Sep 05, 2012 12:59 pm

I have the first release of Occidentalis up and running well on my Pi, but want to keep current. What's the best way to upgrade without starting all over again? apt-get update followed by apt-get upgrade?

you might be able to do that, and then install the kernel over it - unfortunately we dont have an experience with how to do upgrades over wheezy, just full releases - so you might want to do a backup of all your stuff

I'm only just starting, so I reflashed all my SD cards (4). I'd love in the future if you found a way to patch or otherwise update without doing a reflash. I was having WiFi trouble until I did the update, so it was very valuable to me. But I'd have to have to reload and reconfigure stuff every time.
