Postby Chuck_Strut » 2006-03-14 13:14

Hi guys

I have downloaded the whole of debian Sarge 3.1 all 14 CD I just want to get the update of 3.1r1 without downloading each package. So if there is just one package in tar.gz or deb file I fetch.
I have a network of 12 debian PC they need to pull all the updates from one machine that gets all the updates. However this machine is not connected to the internet as yet. So I only have a windows machine that is not connected to the network but is connected to the internet.
I so need to put all the Sarge cd on the one pc then up date that list with the new 3.1r1 then edit atp to piot to the loaction on all pc.
Please help

make a directory for each CD

# mkdir /cds/cd1
copy the cd contents to the directory
add an line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file for each directory to match your directory name like this:
Code: Select all
deb file:///cds/cd1/

then update your sources:
# apt-get update
