Latest image in-built Python

Good day to all,

The latest BBB image is still using Python 2.7.3:

debian@beaglebone:~$ python --version
Python 2.7.3
debian@beaglebone:~$ uname -a
Linux beaglebone 3.8.13-bone70 #1 SMP Fri Jan 23 02:15:42 UTC 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux

This means reworking certain SSL stuff which was introduced in Python
2.7.9.

What would you recommend?

Thanks, Enoch.

Correct, "wheezy" is still 2.7.3:

https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/python

You could use the "jessie" image, but even that is only "2.7.8"..

This is the way debian works, what ever version of a package in the
repo around freeze time, is the version you'll get. Bugs/Security
patches can be added, but they don't upgrade for the sake of
upgrading..

Regards,

Thanks Robert,

Letting your jessie image update itself brought python to the latest 2.7.9
version which is a good news.

Is there any write-up on BBB jessie? I see that wheezy serial port naming
/dev/ttyO* was replaced by the traditional /dev/ttyS*

Thanks, Enoch.

I saw that yesterday, suprised me as:

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/python

still only lists 2.7.8...

So going forward /dev/ttyS* is the new default.. However if your
running systemd you won't notice the serial console changes for
login... For /dev/ttyO* -> /dev/ttyS* we do have a udev rule setup..

just not fully tested.. but it worked last week..

Hopefully i've done enough, where most people won't notice. :wink:

Hi Robert,

How to access /dev/ttyS4 in jessie?
Only /dev/ttyS[0-3] were created and /lib/firmware/BB-UART4-00A0.dtbo is gone.

Thanks, Enoch.

P/S I am using logic supply CBB-TTL-232 with UART4.
