I've just started using
apt-cacher-ng to cache my apt-get downloads. Whenever I start it I get this error:
WARNING: No URL list file matching file:backends_gentoo found in config or support directories.
/etc/apt-cacher-ng/acng.conf I see these lines:
# Repository remapping. See manual for details. # In this example, some backends files might be generated during package # installation using information collected on the system. # Examples: Remap-debrep: file:deb_mirror*.gz /debian ; file:backends_debian # Debian Archives Remap-uburep: file:ubuntu_mirrors /ubuntu ; file:backends_ubuntu # Ubuntu Archives Remap-debvol: file:debvol_mirror*.gz /debian-volatile ; file:backends_debvol # Debian Volatile Archives Remap-cygwin: file:cygwin_mirrors /cygwin # ; file:backends_cygwin # incomplete, please create this file or specify preferred mirrors here Remap-sfnet: file:sfnet_mirrors # ; file:backends_sfnet # incomplete, please create this file or specify preferred mirrors here Remap-alxrep: file:archlx_mirrors /archlinux # ; file:backend_archlx # Arch Linux Remap-fedora: file:fedora_mirrors # Fedora Linux Remap-epel: file:epel_mirrors # Fedora EPEL Remap-slrep: file:sl_mirrors # Scientific Linux Remap-gentoo: file:gentoo_mirrors.gz /gentoo ; file:backends_gentoo # Gentoo Archives
I noticed that
backends_debvol exist in
backends_gentoo does not. If I create an empty file with that name then the error goes away although I'm not sure why this is.
I've looked in the manual as the comments suggest and it looks like the lines in the conf file are specifying either merges or redirects, thought I can't tell which one. I can't seem to understand what these
Remap-* statements are for and if I need them or not? Also why were the other
backend_* files automatically created but not the gentoo one?
