figuring out do_custom_download.pl
I am slogging through the instructions
and I used germinate to create a package list. The instructions advise
using the script here http://wiki.debian.org/DebianCustomCD/CustomDownload
to take the germinated list and download the appropriate debs, but I'm
confused by some of the parameters the script takes.
Here is the command I ran:
./do_custom_download.pl -k i386 -g -p
/home/josh/pool -v -a http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu
-d hardy -c main -b /home/josh/seeds/all -s /home/josh/seeds/all.sources
I get the following output
Initializing package & source database...Couldn't
Couldn't read hardy_main_InstallerPackages
Couldn't read hardy_main_Sources
Couldn't read hardy_contrib_Packages
Couldn't read hardy_contrib_InstallerPackages
Couldn't read hardy_contrib_Sources
but it isn't ok and nothing happens.
Do I need to specify something for the -l option which is the "package
control" path? I have no idea what path I would give it for that.
Does my pool directory already need to have a proper mirror directory
structure? Currently I just have an empty directory?
Is this the way the ubuntu folks do
