["Apt"] > apt-move
apt-move - move cache of Debian packages into a mirror hierarchy. SYNOPSIS
apt-move [-c conffile] [-ft] command DESCRIPTION
apt-move is use to move files from an apt-get cache (which is stored by default in /var/cache/apt) into partial mirror of the Debian archive. It will place the packages in the mirror directory specified in the configuration file /etc/apt-move.conf, and optionally delete any obsolete files in the mirror.
I won't repeat the man page here (say man apt-move on any system with apt-move installed), but below is a sample configuration file.
# Configuration file for the apt-move script. # # You should modify the following configuration to suit your system. # See the apt-move(8) manpage for information about these settings. # # The defaults for this file are simply the settings I currently use. # Configuration for apt-move script -------------------------------------- # The sites in ``/etc/apt/sources.list'' that you wish to mirror. APTSITES="''all''" # The absolute path to your debian directory (top of your local mirror). # This MUST appear as the first entry of your sources.list if you use # sync or mirror. LOCALDIR=/mirrors/debian # The default distribution (see the apt-move(8) manpage for details) DIST=sarge # The package types you want to mirror. # Possible values are: binary, source, and both (use only one). PKGTYPE=binary # The full (absolute) path to your local cache of package files. The default # will work for the apt-get packages, unless you've reconfigured apt. FILECACHE=/var/cache/apt/archives # The full (absolute) path to your local cache of Packages files. The # default will work for the apt-get Packages, unless you've reconfigured apt. LISTSTATE=/var/lib/apt/lists # Do you want apt-move to delete obsolete files from your mirror? (yes/no) DELETE=yes # Maximum percentage of files to delete during a normal run. MAXDELETE=20 # Set this to yes if you wish to keep the originals for move/movefile. COPYONLY=no # Set this to 'none gzip' to get uncompressed Packages/Sources files. PKGCOMP='none gzip' # Set this to yes to make apt-move generate Contents files. CONTENTS=no # End Configuration
Note that this configuration is changed from the default in only one place: DELETE has been set to yes. If you want to change the location of the mirror (destination directory), change LOCALDIR to the desired location.
