It'll work but it's not that safe in terms of stability; you might end up with broken packages. However, you'd pretty much be doing an upgrade to 14.04 because, as soon as your system does the first software update, the 14.04 counterparts of all your installed 12.04 packages and applications will update to the newest version available by default, versions ...

The clean line tells apt-mirror which directories it should check for files which are no longer present in the parent mirror (and so can be deleted). It is not compulsory, but it is good practice for large, regularly updated mirrors. For your particular case (mirror of EOL release), you don't need a clean line, since the EOL mirror is never going to ...

Sometimes, all you need to do is just switch to the main server for updates. Updates, depending on your geographical area, sometimes don't come from the main servers for faster deliveries. For whatever reasons, the relay servers might not be responding as quick as possible to certain requests, so temporarily switching to Main Server for updates should fix ...

Slight change to this, helped me get it working especially in a amd64/i386 mixed environment. ** Instead of using the mount command I just permanently mounted the iso in /etc/fstab ** mount -t iso9660 -o loop /media/Disk1/debian-7.6.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso /media/dvd1-mountpoint mount -t iso9660 -o loop /media/Disk1/debian-7.6.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso ...

If I got you correctly, you've created local repo with aptly repo create, added some packages there and published it with aptly publish repo. aptly would refuse to drop local repo with aptly repo drop if repository is published. So you need to drop published first with aptly publish drop. If the Release file got broken, you might just try running aptly ...

First of all, this is not a convenient way. Instead of this you should use the method mention here. But as an answer to the question. First create a file which contains names of all the available packages using apt-cache. apt-cache dumpavail |grep -oP "(?<=Package: ).*" >> packagelist This will create a file packagelist with all the available ...

The repository archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu was conveniently down today, so I was able to perform the following experiment to validate this: I created a file called ...

You can however clone the repository to a portable medium (e. g. with a Git environment for Windows in an internet café) and copy/move/clone it to your computer afterwards. Please note that you can clone repositories from a local file system or a resource on a local area ...

It contains a patch I created that adds an appindicator to it, since the old systray is no longer supported in Ubuntu. https://launchpad.net/~stefansundin/+archive/truecrypt sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stefansundin/truecrypt sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install truecrypt The version is 7.1a, and I do not intend ...

At any given moment of time: No. (x3) The channels are mutually exclusive. The security channels are fixes of the highest importance. The updates channels are for fixes that couldn't reach security, but still fixes of some sort. backports may contain bug fixes, but that is not their primary aim, and so it should not have anything in common with security or ...
