View Full Version : apt caching and ubuntuzilla repo

February 27th, 2010, 02:20 PM
I wanted to make a chage to the wikipedia: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ubuntuzilla/index.php?title=Main_Page but it seems to be protected.

The repository:
deb http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all mainis the default
deb http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all mainbeing the alternate for 8.10 or earlier.

If you're using a cacher like "apt-cacher" as a proxy, you need to us the alternate repository also, however.
At least until apt-cacher gets updated.

This explains the error:

Err http://downloads.sourceforge.net all/main Packages
302 Moved Temporarily

or if wget'd (where wget gets directed to the apt-cacher proxy

thanks for the heads-up. i'll make a note on the website about any apt tools not supporting 302 redirects.
