The Debian package for rclone, even on Debian 12/Bookworm, is very outdated.
I don't want to install the binary directly cause then I have to remember to update it. I guess I could write a cron job to run
But I am curious how others are handling this...
I never use any package manager for rclone.
I self update and only do that once I read release notes and see what changes are made.
Not sure I'd auto update, but generally that won't cause an issue.
Yeah, I figure a lot do that. But I prefer to run stable. I wish Debian kept their packages up-2-date.
Debian packages will always lag as Debian is based on stable things and will be dated compared to something like Ubuntu.
Rclone is a single binary and has an update function so if the goal is to update, you can cron a self update and be done with it.
On debian/ubuntu systems you can also use this to get the most recent rclone in a very basic
.deb package if you like your OS to know something about your binaries.
rclone self-update --package deb
Yup, I was thinking of doing that but wanted to see what others are doing.
selfupdate I think, not
Either will work (there is an alias) but
selfupdate is the canonical form, you are right.
