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
