View Full Version : Synaptic Package Manager Help

December 18th, 2004, 09:55 AM
I am currently installing Ubuntu Linux thoughout my home network.
I have about 5 pc's at home and every time I install Ubuntu on a new machine I have to download the latest patches which takes for ever on my connection (roughly 2 days !!!)
Is there any way I can download the packages once and then point my other machines Synaptic Package Managers to search my own local repository ?

Already downloaded packages are placed in /var/cache/apt/archives

Get creative :)
