Dropbear - how to update

Post by eskaton »

While digging into some networking settings I saw that Dropbear 2012.55 is installed, but the latest version from the developer is 2015.71. I'm still on v100 because doing the reimage is a hassle I've not gotten around to yet. So is it possible to 'apt-get update dropbear' and have it update correctly according to the dietpi image?

Thanks

Hi,

As DietPi installs Dropbear from apt-get, the version of Dropbear that will be installed is dependent on the repo.

From the sounds of it, you are running wheezy.
If you use the DietPi Jessie (latest stable Debian) image, the following version will get installed:

Code: Select all

2014.65-1
If you require a more recent version of Dropbear, you will need to compile it from source. Example: http://wiki.beyondlogic.org/index.php?t ... ar_for_ARM
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.

Blerg, alright, thanks for the info. I'm really not that great with *nix, so compiling my own is right out. I'll look towards updating to the latest image based on Jessie, but it's no short process for me as I have keys and permission/config changes made that I have to redo when the images change like this. And being no expert, it takes me much longer than the average bear.
