Hi. I've decided that I want to make some local debs of stuff (mainly debs I've used dpkg-repack to incorporate local config changes) and add a deb line to the /etc/apt/sources.list file. My question is, how do I generate the Packages.gz file? I looked through the dpkg man page and dpkg --help and couldn't find it. thanks, jpb -- Joe Block <firstname.lastname@example.org> CREOL System Administrator Social graces are the packet headers of everyday life.
