    Re: apt-fast : A Bash Script to Speed Things Along

    Has anyone managed to get this working in 12.04?

    It's a simple script but a little messy. I'm trying to fix some bugs and write a clean, generic, and flexible script.
    In addition, I'm going to build a package for apt-fast and share it ASAP. It can be run on almost all debian-based systems.

    Re: apt-fast : A Bash Script to Speed Things Along

    manage to install it on 12.04,works fine so far.
    but 2 problem:
    1.seems like the auto completion doesn't working for me
    Code:
    cp ./apt-fast.comp /etc/bash_completion.d/apt-fast
    . /etc/bash_completion
    run this command,check the folder,everything is in order.but not work.

    2.this is silly question,but how to complete replace the apt-get with apt-fast? so ubuntu software center use it too.
    i try rename apt-get to aptg.get.old and link apt-fast to apt-get,but its not working for me.


    for my bad english.
    pardon me..

    http://iloveubuntu.net/apt-fast-164-...uration-dialog

    But this page doesn't have any mention of 1.6.4 ???

    But the launchpad page refers to the git page so my doubts have vanished.

    But there's no mention of a ppa as yet on the Launchpad page (https://launchpad.net/apt-fast). Back to being confused.

    I noticed one difference from the earlier version. I'm not sure it's because of a tweak I made or didn't make. Either way ...

    In Configuration options (/etc/apt-fast.conf), ensure that "DOWNLOADBEFORE=true" is not commented out. If it is commented out and you don't pay attention, you may be timed out and then there's a chance that you may need to download ~ 6 MB of data again (because of the large updates in 12.04).

    Code:
    # Enable DOWNLOADBEFORE to suppress apt-fast confirmation dialog and download
    # packages directly.
    #
    # Default: dialog enabled
    #
    DOWNLOADBEFORE=true
