setting up a mirror?


Hi,
I'm looking to set up a mirror of slackware, mainly of slackware-current, on a computer I have. Does anyone know how I might go about this, or any information [eg frequency, size required]?
Many thanks,

You can mirror sites with wget..

Believe its wget -m <site-or-ftp-name>

man wget for more options, details.

I'd probably guess you'd want to have at least 2GB space... shouldn't be any more than that total, etc.

Or you could use RSYNC. This is what I use to maintain a mirror of -current.

rsync -r -v --stats --delete --exclude=/source/ --exclude=/zipslack/ --exclude=/isolinux/ rsync://rsync.slackware.no/slackware/slackware-current/ /mnt/backup2/slackware-current/

Yes, thats all one line...

thank you very much speedfreak, that's exactly what I wanted [rsync is more configurable than wget]

Yeah that's what I figured to.. totally slipped my mind before..

I tend to only remember certain options early in the morning.. forgetting all what's out there til later..
