APT Pupil: your own repository
A tutorial explaining how to setup your own APT-RPM repository, so you can install your custom (or custom-packaged) programs easily.
Now, this is too lame a piece to announce on the usual sites, so I will just post it here, and as a trackback for the other APT article.
It really feels like half-an-article without the pin and policy stuff, so it will surely get updated eventually.
great article! still, i've found that some things are not working as expected. i've used the instructions above for creating a local apt repo for the internal network. so i've linked /var/cache/apt/archives to the publicly visible directory, and some packages are seen ok, while for others (like /kernel#2.6.11-1.14%5fFC3_2.6.11-1.14%5fFC3_i686.rpm) apache responds with 404 file not found. but i suppose that's apache's problem.
thank you very much!
Well, the name of that file is somewhat weird :-)
For one thing, it seems to be URL-encoded?
