View Full Version : [ubuntu] Edgy Repositories - Need to mirror from someone

June 8th, 2008, 06:23 PM
Hi there, if anyone has a healthy mirrored edgy repository, I would like to mirror/replicate it, so that I can at least have access to the packages, I am using edgy for in many instances still, and since Ubuntu tore down the repos, I'm in a but of a lurch. I would gladly apt-mirror from someone and store all 30 GB locally, and would be willing to mirror with others who would like to replicate and store the repo.

Thanks a lot.... The repositories are very helpful to me....
I would sure like to get them on DVD... PirateBay bit torrent for them is
not functional any more... let me know if you know where I could find this...

I sure could use a means to update my Firefox 2 in edgy to the latest....
Thank you so much.... Everything else works great....

@teckhead -

There is a method to build an install CD / DVD using APT - maybe someone can give us a pointer for you to use? I've never had to do this myself, I just pull things off the network, but if you want an install media handy then this would be the trick.

I wouldn't recommend you download your packages via PirateBay unless you are very careful to check the package signatures against the Ubuntu keyrings. I'm guessing (in part at least) you installed Linux for security's sake - not much sense in then downloading software from an unknown source, is there? Sure, "there are no viruses for Linux", but that won't help you one bit if you download and install malware manually.
