Make a mirror of devuan package repository with a modified debmirror

If you want to create a devuan mirror with debmirror (for example for jessie) you must modify the debmirror perl script as here :
https://github.com/soohwa/devuan-debmirror

You can find the difference with the original :
https://github.com/soohwa/devuan-debmir … its/master

And mirror with :
https://github.com/soohwa/devuan-debmir … /README.md

debmirror /mirror/devuan/ \
	--host=packages.devuan.org \
	--arch=i386,amd64 \
	--dist=jessie,jessie-backports,jessie-proposed-updates,jessie-security,jessie-updates \
	--omit-suite-symlinks \
	--diff=none \
	--root=merged \
	--verbose \
	--i18n \
	--method=http \
	--keyring /mirror/541922FB.bin

541922FB.bin is the public key for devuan repositories.

Re: Make a mirror of devuan package repository with a modified debmirror

You are jumping the gun here.  Package mirrors will need to be set up in a specific way.  Please wait for the official instructions.

In the meantime this might be instructive:

Sorry, i did not want to be offensive. I never wanted to make a public mirror. That method just works fine for me for a local private mirror. This works while waiting for the official instructions with rsync and I just wanted others to enjoy it.

Ah, thanks for clarifying.  My concern was indeed that you were using that to set up a public mirror and that seemed like a rather odd first post.  Enjoy your time here.  Hope we're all good now that that's been straightened out.  smile

hell yeah! many many thanks... i'll make a complete how to for that!

this work for those that not have internet connection

go to a cybercafe
attach the usb disk
download with debmirror
detach the usb disk
go to your home or work
use locally with "file://" or bypassing with webserver with "htttp://localhost"
or if you have a router, set a ip and use as normal repository.. just added to boot screen allow_unantenticated=true (or something)
