Re: Setting up to do repetitive installs on ONE machine (cf BabelBox)

Now you can use virtual machines instead of real machines to set up your
local network.  It works the same as I described above.  You will need
to read up a bit on the networking options that Virtualbox provides.
I think you want "bridged networking", but it's been a while since I've
used it. [snip]

From http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html
"Host-only networking
This can be used to create a network containing the host and a set of virtual machines, without the need for the host's physical network interface. Instead, a virtual network interface (similar to a loopback interface) is created on the host, providing connectivity among virtual machines and the host."

This seems to be a better description of my mental image of my project.

While searching out links re structure of Debian repositories and *.deb files, I came across the "REPREPRO" man page. It hints that some of my early ideas *MIGHT* be workable.

Have fun practicing networking!

My goal is taming  computers ;)
