LXer: Make apt-get Installations and Upgrades 26x faster with apt-fast
Published at LXer:
The apt-fast script little shellscript that increases the speed of apt-get by many times. You need to have the axel download accelerator installed, which is a simple, short process, but everything else is extremely straight forward. After installing and using apt-fast you will notice that the speed of downloading and installing a package is more than 26 times faster than before.
I wonder how it should be possible to download a file that already consists of gzipped content 26-times faster. And how should it install faster?
