How am I assign applications from directory to aptitude?
I have an offline debian lenny pc.When I installing debian system to pc,debian scan 5 addition debian dvds.After installing I copied all packages from debian dvds to in /mnt/storage/apt/ directory and create shortcut of applications to in /var/cache/apt/archives/ , because I do not like to use dvds for application install each time.I used to work without any problem until yesterday.
Yesterday I install again debian lenny and I did not scan dvds when debian want scan additional dvds.After install I copied again shortcuts to in /var/cache/apt/archives/ but now when I want install an application, as usual I use "aptitude search psycopg2 " command but aptitude not find any application. I need to go install manually from folder with "dpkg -i <packagename>" from directory. I saw synaptic > edit > Add cd-rom options.I think that options assign packages synaptic to names and the package stay on which dvd.
I want that aptitude work with /mnt/storage/apt/ directory.
How am I do it ?
Do can I told my problem to you ?
thanks for helping
I'm not sure if I fully understand what your problem is, but the following approach (exact details could be wrong) should work.
You can create a local repository with dpkf-scanpackages and then add an entry to your sources.list
This may be something I'm looking for.
I will try
thanks for reply ;)
