When SCM is done well, organizations benefit from repeatability, traceability and auditability, says Stephen Berczuk, Engineer, Humedica.
“Code is easier to reproduce and you have a more reproducible process.
This gets you the latest bleeding edge kernel/firmware. Bug fixes and improvements will eventually make their way into new Raspbian releases and apt-get when they are considered sufficiently well tested.
A good reason for using this would be if you like to help with the testing effort, and are happy to risk breakages and submit bug reports. Also if you are suffering from a bug in current firmware (perhaps as one of the reporters of the bug on github or forum) and a fix has been pushed out for testing, then using rpi-update is the right way to get the fix until it makes its way into new Raspbian images and apt-get. To install the tool, run the following command: Allows you to perform an "offline" update, ie update firmware on an SD card you are not currently booted from.
Useful for installing firmware/kernel to a non-RPI customised image.
Be careful, you must specify both options or neither.
Unfortunately, as they are all third-party products, you’ll need to contact the manufacturer for support with the device. If your host was blocked for abuse, it probably wasn’t something that you did intentionally.
You can either use the update client in your router or download a software client to run on your computer.The update client periodically checks your network’s IP address; if it sees that your IP address has changed, it sends (updates) the new IP address to your hostname in your Dyn account.If you’re like many Dyn DNS customers, you have a dynamic IP address which changes periodically (monthly, weekly or even daily).Also differences in the usage of /boot and /opt/vc directories will likely make it unsafe.
Even on Raspbian you should only use this with a good reason.This can make it difficult or impossible to connect to services at home, like remote desktop or FTP.
