Wrong port and confusing assumption (page 250)More...
Reported on: 2006-01-09
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
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.
