Dependancies etc


Hi All

I am going to be building a number of linux pc's and servers. Is there a way I can download dependancies and stuff like ssh server and samba etc on to a local server so I don't have to use loads of bandwidth on the net all the time.

Thanks

Which distribution are you planning to install?
You can setup a local mirror.

Why not just do one install and then image it to the others?

You could use apt-mirror if you're on Debian-based distro's.

By building a *full mirror* you will most probably download hundreds of packages you will never use resulting in a downloading much more data than you would have if you are only setting up a few machines. A better option may be to use apt-proxy or perhaps apt-mirror. Another option is to use a conventional cache/proxy like squid.

Cheers,

Evo2.
