Debian dopplerganging

21:24 < c-c> jhutchins_wk: but jesbang isn't good enough, so I restarted with obviux 21:25 < c-c> but its for debian stretch which is off-topic here 21:25 -!- Wizek_ [~Wizek@catv-89-132-132-110.catv.broadband.hu] has joined #debian 21:25 < brejoc> Hi @all! I would like to mirror the packages of a Debian installation. Problem is: I can't rely on /var/cache/apt/archives/ and some of the pkgs can be a bit older and might not be in the current debian repo anymore. Is there a way to do that anyway? 21:25 < c-c> hm, a local mirror? 21:25 < somiaj> !aptitude clone 21:25 < dpkg> To clone a Debian machine using aptitude (or install your favourite packages) use aptitude search --disable-columns -F%p '~i!~M!~v' > package_list; on the reference machine; xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < package_list; aptitude install; on the other machine. This preserves information about "automatically installed" packages that other methods do not. See also <reinstall>, <things to backup>, <debian clone>, <apt-clone>. 21:26 < somiaj> brejoc: that is the best way to clone a debian installination in my opinion. 21:26 < brejoc> somiaj: Where does aptitude pull the packages from, when they are not in the repos anymore? 21:26 < somiaj> brejoc: the internet </apt-clone></debian></things></reinstall>
