Make all computer update to one PC


Hi guys,

I got knocked down in Bandwidth lately, and It doesnt seem like I will be able to keep all my Pc's updated. They all run ubuntu of some form, and I would like to have my main PC, be a repo for all the other ones based on the packages that have been downloaded. I do not want this to be a mirror for the entire repository of Ubuntu as some in other forums suggested.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

thanks

You may find it makes your life easier if you ensure that all of your *buntus are of the same date version.

If not, you'll have to keep the files for, eg, 8.10 separate from 9.04, which isn't a biggie, but is does reduce the effectiveness of this 'only download it once' scheme.
