can't install from a local repository
Probably a simple question. But I've created a local repository. Figured
out how dput moved packages into the archive. Worked through
atp-ftparchive and created a Packages.gz file, got sources-list to point
at my archive correctly.
But when I do a
apt-get install spinelli (spinelli is my package)
I get this message.
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package spinelli has no available version, but exists in the database.
This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and
never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents
E: Package spinelli has no installation candidate
After pillaging the documentation, I've concluded that this error is a
mystery to me. Is there something special I have to do to a package to
make it apt-get install'able?
