Apt-mirror

Postby millpond » 2019-01-17 18:29

Using buster/sid

Installed apt-mirror

Edited etc/apt/mirror.list to remove comment hashes to default output dirs in var.

Did not work.

The variable name format_byte needs to be searched and replaced with something like xfmt_byte. Perl is not accepting , apparently, system names as even partial var names.

Also, the instructions of:
mirror -c mirror.list
- does not work.

It wont find it. Edited the location for mirror.list in /bin/mirror and put it in the /bin directory.

The correct command appears to be:
mirror mirror.list

Now, works fine.

M question is, that as I have it mirroring 'unstable' (Sid), I am assuming it will also pull in all older packages not updated recently. As in the entire archives for my architecture - AMD64?

I am also pulling in source. Is there a printable faq out there (thats current) for compiling and backporting from those sources?
I've seen them for jessie and earlier, dunno is anything has changed, or remember where they are!

sid amd64 sysv apt-mirror -
checked for /bin/mirror (not there)
checked /etc/apt/mirror.list (looked good to me) for a dry run
(I like to run defaults first to see how it behaves out of the box).

I only got contrib and non-free on initial run
good thing too I wouldn't have had enough room in this partition for main
otherwise the local mirror looks good so far ....

Typo.
It should be
apt-mirror mirror.list

with etc/apt/mirror.list moved or symlinked to /bin

Here it pulls down 160+ Gb
I have it include souce....

Print this:
Code: Select all
apt-get source --target-release $branch --compile $program

Are your man pages broken as well?

Indeed they are:
APT-GET(8) APT APT-GET(8)

NAME
apt-get - APT package handling utility -- command-line interface

SYNOPSIS
apt-get [-asqdyfmubV] [-o=config_string] [-c=config_file] [-t=target_release] [-a=architecture] {update | upgrade
| dselect-upgrade | dist-upgrade | install pkg [{=pkg_version_number | /target_release}]... |
remove pkg... | purge pkg... | source pkg [{=pkg_version_number | /target_release}]... |
build-dep pkg [{=pkg_version_number | /target_release}]... |
download pkg [{=pkg_version_number | /target_release}]... | check | clean | autoclean | autoremove |
{-v | --version} | {-h | --help}}

Certainly not as succinct and clear as yours.

Search the man page with <Ctrl>+f and read the paragraph on the source option, that's where I got my suggestion from...
