DBus version installed: 1.10.6 Programs look at 1.1.1. How to get rpi to look at newest DBus?

RPI Project/programs: alertR Home Alert System via github.
Current status:
12/30/2015 14:26:08 INFO: [alertRinstaller.py]: Checking the dependencies. 
12/30/2015 14:26:08 INFO: [alertRinstaller.py]: Checking module 'dbus'. 
The needed version '1.2.0' of module 'dbus' is not satisfied (you have version '1.1.1' installed). Please update your installed version.

That check is for the python dbus module not for the version of the dbus daemon.

On Raspbian Jessie, version 1.2.0 is installed. I don't have Wheezy on anything to check what it has. You should be able to uninstall the default version and replace it with the latest:

http://dbus.freedesktop.org/doc/dbus-python/

http://dbus.freedesktop.org/releases/dbus-python/

  • Yeah -- the python3-dbus package on wheezy is 1.1.1. See here about trying to upgrade the package, but as noted there at this point you should probably just upgrade the whole system unless you have a reason not to. – goldilocks Dec 30 '15 at 16:58
  • Thanks for this. Followed above guidance but no luck. Still get: The needed version '1.2.0' of module 'dbus' is not satisfied (you have version '1.1.1' installed). Please update your installed version. New to RPI/linux etc... How to upgrade whole system? Purge first? Can you give me some command line prompts? Thanks! – eechen Dec 30 '15 at 18:19
