Hey,
the current RPi images are not based on a Debian distribution like Raspbian. Instead it is running the ARM version of Arch Linux. The equivalent to apt-get on Arch is pacman, so updating your system would be done like this:
pacman -Syu

Hello thank you. I tried to follow these steps and so lost on how to Configure my Raspberry pi to work with priatebox. I do not know what to do What are the steps to Get it up and running Because I'm looking at the Pi manual page and I get no where with it?

Hi,
mh, you mixed up two different howtos.

We have a DIY howto, that refers to the prebuild images, which are the easiest way to install PirateBox on a RPi.
The other manual is the "manual" setup, which is for more custom made configurations, based on Raspbian.

hope that helps to clarify.

best regards
Matthias

You're welcome.
I also added a notice on the RPi-manual instruction, that might be less confusing for the future.

Thank you for your feedback. Let us know, if you have further problems.

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet manual

#allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf



#allow-hotplug wlan1
iface wlan1 inet manual
wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Hello it looks like i finally got it up running it was a problem that was not related to installing it. From my last post it was a lan network problem when trying to start up.
