Sid CD fails as apt source
I'm trying to use a sid iso image as a apt source. I've successfully
mounted it and added a file entry to sources.list as:
deb file:/mnt/iso/debian sid main
When I run apt-get update, apt reports it can't find Packages.gz:
Failed to fetch
file:/mnt/iso/debian/dists/sid/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz File not found
This isn't surprising though since Packages.gz on the iso is in the
sid/main/binary-alpha directory instead of in sid/main/binary-i386 where
apt expects it to be.
I could copy the image to my harddisk and rename the directory to
binary-i386 but I shouldn't have to do this, should I? I must be
missing something simple here.
