Postby anunaki » 2017-02-15 06:56

I have pretty much done with the automating , the packages that are downloaded during the installation take to much time ,
so want to keep those files locally and access them during the installation . the problem is where to keep the files and how to access them during the installation.
the debian type is Jessie ,

Share /var/cache/apt/ over NFS.

Anunaki,

At the risk of hijacking this thread, can you explain how you got preseeding to work? I am trying to reference a preseed.cfg file from http server, and all I get from the debian installer is "Failed to retrieve the preconfiguration file" But with wget from the console on in debian installer, I can see the file, even download it.

Any help appreciated.
