sharing /var/cache between two installations of debian?
I am using apt-cacher and apt-build. apt-cacher keeps it's stash
in /var/cache/apt-cacher/ and apt-build keeps it's stash
I have two debians installed. Deb1 and Deb2 on hda1 and hda2.
I only use one at a time. For instance, I am using Deb1 currently, I make
backups of deb1 and at some point verify that the backups work by doing a net
install of debian to deb2 and restoring my backup to deb2. At which time I
will switch and use deb2 for a while. During that time deb1 is unused.
I want to both to use the same /var/cache partition. /var/cache has its own
partition. I already share /tmp and swap. Is there anything in /var/cache,
or is there anything that could be in /var/cache that would cause problems if
it was shared in this way? I see that debconf has stuff here. Is there any
likely problem sharing this partition in this way? I don't really know what I
am doing which is why I am asking. I don't really know what debconf does, is
it going to be a problem?
Is there a better way?
