apt-cacher and checkinstall - client cannot find self-made package


Hi folks,

Hope I don't forget anything, I'm kinda new here

Alright, currently I have a server with apt-cacher installed on it. I configured /etc/apt/sources.lst on the client to connect to the server in order to then get new/updated packages, this works perfect. Now I downloaded a *.tar.gz file and created a debian package with checkinstall. I put this newly created package into the /var/cache/apt-cacher/import/ folder and ran /usr/share/apt-cacher/apt-cacher-import.pl, the return message said "1 package imported".

Question is, how can I configure my client to get this self-created package from the server. I tried "apt-get update" and then "apt-get -s install <package_name>" but it didn't find it.

Hope somebody can help me here, I appreciate it.

Thank you and cheers!

Maybe apt-get check?

From the apt-get man page:
Quote:
check check is a diagnostic tool; it updates the package cache and
checks for broken dependencies
