Re: Package Download Tool?
Which is a frontend for DPKG
Is there a tool to quickly download, for a given architecture, a given
package & its dependancies?
I've been doing a lot of cross development & find myself downloading
lots of packages using the Debian web interface. Good as Debian's web
interface is, this is tedious.
Investigating apt-get, I found:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=197424 but I can't
figure out how to stipulate an architecture to aptitude (-a powerpc,
or something) or download depended packages.
I need a tool to quickly download (& optionally extract, in one step)
packages for a stipulated architecture, & there dependancies. Anyone
know of a solution?
I thought that Debian, with a repository of cross architecture
binaries, & the oldest package tools, would be great for cross
development - but thus far, it's been surprisingly difficult!
