    Re: HOWTO: Share updates across multiple machines

    Thanks for that! Can others confirm? Could someone investigate whether this needs to be updated on all machines, or just the server? Sorry, but there's been a family emergency. I'm away from home for the next week.
    I don't really mind, and it's starting to get to me.

    I've been trying to use apt-cacher today on Lucid before and after updates, but no luck. I tried apt-cacher-ng - almost identical installation/setup and works perfectly.

    Cheers

    This hasn't worked for me for some time on Lucid (if at all).

    I tried zzztownsend's suggestion and can confirm that works.

    Just uninstall apt-cacher on the server, and install apt-cacher-ng in its place - all other settings remain the same.

    I upgraded my apt-cacher machine a couple months ago (at most) from Xubuntu v8.04LTS to v10.04LTS.

    For at LEAST the last couple of weeks each time cron.daily runs the cleanup (apt-cacher-cleanup.pl) it appears to be going into a loop. I THINK it's doing it because I have user and group in the .conf file set to root (as it's been since 4/2008). Those of you running Lucid might want to run TOP or "ps aux | grep apt-cacher" to see if your cleanup has been running for days/weeks/months. See bug #622161 in launchpad for more detail.

    I would like to import the CD caches. Is it possible? If yes? How to do it?
