How To apt-fast in #!

view story

http://crunchbanglinux.org – Well, I have used a script called "apt-fast" in Ubuntu before without a hitch. It's a apt download-accelerator that uses aria2c or axel to speed up apt downloads. There were some problems, couldn't use the PPA and the installation was a hassle, here's how I got it done (with help from  VastOne and brontosaurusrex on the IRC channel :P )1. Install axel with "sudo apt-get install axel"2.Install apt-fast from here, use the "natty" version and make sure it's appropriate for your archetecture (i386 or x86_64) http://ppa.launchpad.net/apt-fast/s (HowTos)
