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.

Feedback This is probably the best book about Debian ever written, but it has a specific target audience: those who are already familiar with GNU/Linux, or at least other unices. [...] Martin F. Krafft explains [Debian GNU/Linux] with clarity in a thorough and very well written book. [...] For those with already a basic understanding of GNU/Linux and interested in debian Kraffts book will be THE indispensable companion. [...] This is definitely the best written and most intelligent IT book I have ever read.
