Platform naming rules have been changed
To allow upcoming support for multiple platforms, the naming rules have been updated to follow this convention:
- platform-kernel <- kernel pkg used by the platform (i.e rpi-kernel)
- platform-base <- base pkg used by the platform (i.e rpi-base)
That means that for the Raspberry Pi the
base-system package no longer depends on
kernel-rpi package or any other platform specific package.
To successfully upgrade your rpi follow these steps:
# xbps-install -Syu ... [ base-system will be updated to >=0.80 ] ... # xbps-install -Sy rpi-base ... [ rpi-base will install rpi-kernel pkg ] ... # xbps-pkgdb -m manual rpi-base ... [ rpi-base is now the main platform pkg ] ...
For x86 users the
base-system package still depends on platform specific packages
for compatibility, so you can safely ignore this post.
