APT repository cache

2008-08-19 21:21:08.41596+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Mike Smith on the Chugalug mailing list describes how to set up apt-cache:

If it's just for your local stuff setup apt-proxy (assuming Ubuntu/Debian: apt-get install apt-proxy), then change your /etc/apt/sources.list lines from us.archive.ubuntu.com to the.aptproxy.ip.address:9999, port 9999 is the default, you can change it.

I've got 3 machines here that update regularly, I've wanted to set up a cache for this, in fact i've even see the apt-proxy package and installed it, I just needed to get off my butt and get the default port. Now you have the default port too.

Or you could just do what I do for my home office (which is filled with Ubuntu boxes) and put a transparent Squid proxy in place ;)
