How to use my Dotdeb mirror
I've provided a public Dotdeb mirror since early 2014 but I didn't write about it on my primary blog, or on this blog. So here are the instructions on how to use my mirror. You will see that using my mirror, or any Dotdeb mirror, is very simple:
You will want to add the main repository to your
sources.list. This varies depending on your distribution, it is either Jessie, Wheezy or Squeeze. You can find out by issuing
cat /etc/os* which should yield something along the lines of this:
root@streicher:~# cat /etc/os* PRETTY_NAME="Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie)" NAME="Debian GNU/Linux" VERSION_ID="8" VERSION="8 (jessie)" ID=debian HOME_URL="http://www.debian.org/" SUPPORT_URL="http://www.debian.org/support" BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.debian.org/"
If you're running Debian 8 (Jessie) you'll want to add these two lines to your
deb http://dotdeb.mirror.k0nsl.org jessie all deb-src http://dotdeb.mirror.k0nsl.org jessie all
I mirror Dotdeb packages for Wheezy and Squeeze too.
The last step is to fetch and install the GnuPG key:
wget https://dotdeb.org/dotdeb.gpg sudo apt-key add dotdeb.gpg
That's it. Enjoy!
