Mutantxcan anyone help me on how I can mount ChildFolder that's under //Server/ParentFolder to /mnt/ContentOfChildFolder ?
Xulfawhere is apt-setup in etch?
asgXulfa: it isn't
Xulfawhat do I use as replacement?
asgXulfa: /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/sources.list
lfsWhat is apt-setup?
abrotmanmaybe we should put a dirge in dpkg for apt-setup
!apt-setup
dpkgit has been said that apt-setup is a means of adding deb/deb-src lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list so that you can install packages from the internet. To install from a cd-rom ask me about 'apt-cdrom'. no longer available in testing/unstable since base-config was removed, see http://lists.debian.org/debian-boot/2006/01/msg00199.html. Gone from etch and sid.
lfsThat sounds good. Why idid it get tossed?
asglfs: an artifact of pre-etch's installer that still hung around afterwards. People relied on it to create their sources.list.
abrotmanlfs: gone because no one picked it up i guess
Xulfawhat do I use as replacement?
abrotmanvi
asgXulfa: there isn't one. Edit your sources.list by hand based on the examples and docs in /usr/share/doc/apt
abrotmanor use apt-spy (which can take awhile)
Xulfathere isn't a list of mirrors on the system
abrotman!mirrors
dpkgmethinks debian mirrors is use apt-setup if you are running sarge, or at http://www.debian.org/mirror/list or ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/README.mirrors.txt or http://www.debian.org/mirrors/ to make a mirror, or ask me about <apt-spy>
asgXulfa: there is
Xulfaasg: where?
ah
thats retarded
