Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work if one uses rsync method and if I use
ftp I run up again limit of users.
specifically I tried running:
# debmirror /fsys2/test-mirror -a i386,ia64 -h ftp.de.debian.org \
-e rsync -d stable -r :debian --progress
It appears to be downloading various package files and etc, but at the end
it exits with
dists/stable/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz: No such file or directory at
/usr/bin/debmirror line 399.
releasing 1 pending lock... at /usr/lib/perl5/LockFile/Simple.pm line 182.
if one looks into the directory tree where the file is supposedly download there
is nothing to be seen. Am I using the program incorrectly?
What do you use?
