I appreciate to hear comments and/or test results if anybody already tested or plan to use this excellent debootstrap on the new RPi 3. Does it work good as it does on RPi 2? What differs?

I solved the "time sync problem" a few weeks ago: It has been a hardware issue for me. I thought it had to be a timesync issue because my Pi was pingable but not reacting to https and ssh anymore (http wasn't active). As I posted before, systemd-timesync was configured properly. When I tried getting help on IRC, someone suggested to check hardware related stuff. He was right :)

Thanks a lot for providing this really nice guide, I was able to use my pi2 with jessie in no time.

A few additions:

To get rid of systemd, this link provides all the details: http://without-systemd.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_remove_systemd_from_a_Debian_jessie/sid_installation

Basically all you need to do is to put the usual network stuff to /etc/network/interfaces and then

apt-get install sysvinit-core sysvinit-utils
cp /usr/share/sysvinit/inittab /etc/inittab
reboot
apt-get remove --purge --auto-remove systemd
echo -e 'Package: systemd\nPin: release *\nPin-Priority: -1' > /etc/apt/preferences.d/systemd

To get system time right:

dpkg-reconfigure tzdata
apt-get install ntp

I also added max_usb_current=1 to /boot/firmware/config.txt, so the PI gives enough power to an external USB Hard Drive.

Hi,

Raspbian Jessie Lite - the Minimal image based on Debian Jessie on official RPi site ( https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/ ) looks like our image here.

Did anyone compare the official image and the one of this site? Sjoerd what do you think?

Regards, Murat TA1DB

I just ran into the same issue. The image is using systemd-timesyncd for time synchronization. Yet, I couldn't find out what's causing the problem, as systemd-timesyncd is running and seems to be confgured properly.

I've just installed my second RPI2 with current image jessie-rpi2-20150705.img.gz on the weekend. I saw that "trusted=yes" is set on Sjoerd's repository in /etc/apt/sources.list. I strongly recommend to remove this setting. I've already emailed Sjoerd about this. He will generate a fresh image. Thank you in adavance ;)

SPI

Hi, Thx your very much for your work, it is very quit and simple to install (bmaptools is really fast)

Still, i have a little problem. I need raspi-config, in order to activate SPI, and to connect a 4DS 32 LCD screen.

Where can i find this tool ? is there a new way to configure this raspbian ? Thx

I was looking for a good linux distro to use my RPI2 as a server, but all the other ones are bloated, or don't have good sources. All I had to do was use rufus to burn this to my MicroSD card, pop it in to my RPI2, and SSH into it. I changed the sources to the standard jessie list, ran apt-get update, then upgrade, now I have a surprisingly fast, cheap, mini server. ProFTPd-basic is super fast and awesome. Nginx and php5-fpm run flawlessly. And I can use it as an RTMP server too. So much value for the $. Thanks for the distro.

How do we get a new key for apt-get? The current key expired. Thanks.
