I’m excited that a new update of PiAware has been released but am puzzled on how to update. When I visit the update site, instructions are from the command line-
# Download PiAware (piaware_1.15-1_armhf.deb) wget http://flightaware.com/adsb/piaware/files/piaware_1.15-1_armhf.deb # This will upgrade PiAware on your Raspberry Pi sudo dpkg -i piaware_1.15-1_armhf.deb # This will install any newly required third party libraries # It is usually not needed for upgrades sudo apt-get install -fy
Do I type ALL of this into the prompt, or is there something I’m supposed to be looking for?
Also, my Pi is on a wifi connection, and I don’t have a way to access it wirelessly. I’ve been told I can access it through PuTTY and SSH, but I am unfamiliar with either. My intention was to unplug the unit, hook it up to my monitor and keyboard and update. But I’ve also read that unplugging the unit could corrupt the SD card. Is there a proper protocol to shut the RPi down? Is there any additional maintenance that needs to be routinely done to the software or unit, or is this more of a “set and forget” system?
