How to use apt-p2p For Faster Upgrades From Ubuntu 8.10 to 9.04

Posted 04-20-2009 at 03:18 AM by sridhar11

apt-p2p is a p2p proxy for apt dowloads, it will act as a proxy between apt requests and a repository server, downloading any request files from peers (if possible), else will fallback to direct HTTP download. In general, apt-p2p save bandwidth, use limited cpu and memory resources and reduce congestion on the ubuntu mirrors.apt-p2p will get the request files from peers,therefore, it will avoid the congestion on the ubuntu mirrors.

Slammed on Slamd64

Posted 04-18-2009 at 06:12 PM by brianL

I could have tried 8.10, but from what I've read, the LTS versions are a safer bet - less flaky. The next candidate for installation will be slamd64. I'll keep Ubuntu, because sometimes I'm in a pointy-clicky...
