View Full Version : [all variants] AptMove Help

January 3rd, 2009, 02:58 AM
I am helping installing Ubuntu on a friend's computer. I decided to use Hardy for her, considering that it is a longterm release, and Intrepid has been a bit slower in my experience thus far.
Her computer has known wireless card issues with the older kernels. So I am looking into using this AptMove application to create a CD based repository for her so we can get all the security updates and hopefuly fix out the last of the hardware problems.
The question I have is this: Since my computer is running on Intrepid and I have her on Ibex, will I be able to get the security updates from the Hardy repositories to create the repository CD for her computer?
Thanks in advance for all your help!

Another option, have you considered looking at using the "generate package download script" which would do what you are wanting.
