Searching Packages from Web

Hi there, every time i need manual download of a specific package of Devuan. the site don't find anything.
You had planned to fix it ?

Too many times i need enter directly to :

http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged/di … 4/Packages
http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged/di … 4/Packages
http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged/di … 4/Packages

http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged/di … 6/Packages
http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged/di … 6/Packages
http://auto.mirror.devuan.org/merged/di … 6/Packages

To try get the full url where synaptic download files. sometimes i fail, because in some folders don't have any file, or if have files much are empty. and that make some hard find a single package i need.

Re: Searching Packages from Web

Good observation. Most of the repository is empty. You will only find packages that were changed by devuan in the devuan repositories. The packages will be in /pool, but you must be sure to get the right version.The way amprolla works is to merge the debian repos with the devuan repos and serve you the correct packages for your system.

If you want to download any packages in devuan:

apt-get download <package>
or
aptitude download <package>

If you want to download from the web, use a devuan repo url for packages that have been modified by devuan and go to packages.debian.org for packages we have not modified. DO NOT ERR! (It's safer to use the package manager to get the packages.)

I believe someone is working on a web interface for searching files, but I don't know the current status.
