apt-mirror doesn't create appropriate mirror ???
Sorry for disturbing again,
I can't create a local mirror, I tryed many and many times .
Help please

Here is what I have done:
I create a local mirror for lenny ( just to test so I mirrored contrib i386 about 200 MB), here is the tree (remove some letter directories):

I used the command

the file contains /etc/apt/mirror.list

deb lenny contrib
###deb-src unstable main contrib non-free

here is the tree :

debian225:/var/www# ls debian
dists pool
debian225:/var/www# tree -L 3 debian
|-- dists
| `-- lenny
| |-- Contents-i386.gz
| |-- Release
| |-- Release.gpg
| `-- contrib
`-- pool
`-- contrib
|-- a
|-- b
|-- c
|-- x
`-- y
40 directories, 3 files

I used the official netboot lenny thru PXE (dhcp)

evrything is fine at boot from a remote client until the choice of the mirror to complete,
If I choose an official one for example then debian It runs fine

if I choose my local repo : then debian I get the error
bad archive error
the specified archive mirror is either not available or doesn't have a valid Release!!!!!

The file Realease and Release.gpg are exactly the same as files in official repo, I check them !!!

Is there a special thing to add to the installer ?
here is the pxe directory

debian225:/home# tree -L 3 /var/lib/tftpboot/
|-- debian-installer
| `-- i386
| |-- boot-screens
| |-- initrd.gz
| |-- linux
| |-- pxelinux.0
| `-- pxelinux.cfg
|-- pxelinux.0 -> debian-installer/i386/pxelinux.0
|-- pxelinux.cfg -> debian-installer/i386/pxelinux.cfg

I add the line to apt.conf ??

APT::Get::AllowUnauthenticated 1 ;

to disable the test authencity (if any pb of Release.gpg ), not sure that it does something, because If I have to
do something I have to do in /var/lib/tftpboot/debian-installer which contains the kernel

cat /etc/apt/apt.conf

gives correct directory:
Index of /debian
[ICO] Name Last modified Size Description
[DIR] Parent Directory -
[DIR] dists/ 29-Sep-2009 11:23 -
[DIR] pool/ 29-Sep-2009 10:56 -

Ofcourse no README and other files, are not required normally.


best regards
