How do I create a mirror from my CDs
I've googled. I've found scripts that don't Work For Me. I've found the APT
howto and not understood the little information I could see there.
I've got seven CDs burned myself from the ISO images I downloaded.
Unpacking them is no problem, I can mount -o loop,ro with the best of them, and from there I can
tar cC /mnt/cdrom | tar xpC /var/ftp/pub/linux/debian
and recursively chmod and rm TRANS.TBLs.
I'm new to Debian, not new to Linux.
What I can't figure is precisely how to create those Packages files. What command(s) do I run, and importantly, in what directories?
Oh hell, this poor sod's supposed to have my mirror;-(
