Wrong port and confusing assumption (page 250)

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
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.


Glenn English: "The Debian System" is exactly the one I'd been looking for. It's an excellent discussion of sarge (3.1), and it's full of useful information: theory, philosophy, HOWTO, and why. [...] And the best thing about it is that when it's lying open by the keyboard, the book doesn't try to close itself -- the pages lie flat. [...] Kudos to the publisher! And you, too. This is a marvelous piece of work.
