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

Published at LXer:

If you want to upgrade From Ubuntu Intrepid (8.10) to Jaunty (9.04) use this tutorial for faster upgrades.We are going to use apt-p2p for this tutorial.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.
