I'm creating a repository for distributing specific software. I want to be able to store old versions of the software in the repository, but I'd like the users of the repo to not need to specify a version to download the latest. Can I use a shortcut in the directory that simply points to the latest version?
Why does this happen? I am (this time) trying to install Atmel's gnu-avr toolchain. Atmel's web site gives the repository as http:www.atmel.no/avr32/suse/11.0/i586. I put that into YAST2's repository manager, and it comes back with "unable to create repository from URL..."
I've got a fresh install of Precise Pangolin. I was connected to the Internet during the installation but did not choose to download updates while installing. The computer is now offline and will stay that way.
I want to install Ubuntu 12.04 in many systems simultaneously and the Internet Speeds are way too slow!. So i thought of using my pen drive as a Local Repository, by copying all the Updated packages from one system and install it to the other systems for a faster update.
Ubuntu software repository is one of the bigger, and this means that you can easily install a lot of software with the Ubuntu Software Center or from the command line with a simple sudo apt-get install softwarename, but sometimes you want a software that is not present or perhaps a newer release of the one available in the main repository, in this cases you can use a PPA.
