Copy /var/cache/apt to speed up package install ?
 
Hi all,

I frequent update and install packages on a lots of machines using apt-get update and install.

I was wondering if I can just update and install on one machine and then copy those cached file undar /var/cache/apt to other machine, so I can save downloading time while do apt-get install.

I tried, but seems apt-get ignored those files and downloading from source anyway. Any idea?
