Wrong port and confusing assumption (page 250)

In chapter 5. The Debian package management system on page 250:

In the subsection on apt-proxy of section 5.11.7, the sources.list file does not include apt-proxy's default port 9999. Instead, it should read:

~# cat <<EOF > /etc/apt/sources.list
http://arakis:9999/debian sarge main
http://arakis:9999/security sarge/updates main
http://arakis:9999/pdo/~madduck/packages/stage ./

In addition, the paragraph just before the snippet says that the machine running apt-proxy must be resolvable from the machine named arakis. Rather, the machine running apt-proxy must be resolvable as arakis from the machine hosting the sources.list file.

Feedback

Aric Campling, MozillaQuest: [The book] can provide you with a wealth of knowledge to make any Debian task easier, more efficient, and relatively painless. [...] Krafft details a set of additional Debian software management tools that aid the user or administrator in maintaining a clean, streamlined system.
