Re: mirror questions
I include a local fs on my discs. This is added to the tree before I burn
the discs with a mkhybrid | cdrecord pipe. When it comes to an install
dselect picks up the local fs with no problems.
As I only have about 15 packages in the local fs I build the Packages file
Hope this helps.
