How to change the Default folder of AptCacherNg

Postby makh » 2018-08-10 00:40

Hi

I was looking into:
https://wiki.debian.org/AptCacherNg

It uses by default:
Code: Select all
/var/cache/apt-cacher-ng/


Can I use:
Code: Select all
/var/cache/apt/archives/

... instead.

But I see a small issue: /var/cache/apt-cacher-ng/ has sub folders system.

Thankyou

Hi

I tested this for arch:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman/Tips_and_tricks#Network_shared_pacman_cache
This worked.

Can I do the same in Debian?

For an alternative to a complete package solution you could use the package dpkg-dev.

Arrange your pool how and where you like and serve it up as you like.

from a terminal in the top of your structure run
Code: Select all
dpkg-scanpackages . /dev/null | gzip -9c > Packages.gz


along with an http solution you can also make it local with sources.list something like
deb [trusted=yes] file:///pool/dists/stretch/binary-amd64/ ./


In my arrangement this pool is served up by passing around a usb, either real or as a qcow2. Works fine.
