    Thanks, found that right after I posted. I'll have to look up the syntax but I'm sure the man page will tell me.

    Excellent How-To, thank you for posting it.

    Do you need to use the deb-amd64 and deb-i386 sources to get both repositories, or is that only for older distributions (I only see it on older how-tos).

    Thanks!

    Seems forever since I wrote that tutorial, but I'm pretty sure you do. I didn't include it since I was only supporting and building for a single processor architecture.

    Best I recall you add lines for each repo that start with "deb-amd64" instead of just "deb".

    I hope I'm remembering right.

    Re: [HowTo] Building a local Mirror for Ubuntu Repositories.

    From the man page for sources.list:

    distribution may also contain a variable, $(ARCH) which expands to the Debian architecture (i386, m68k, powerpc, ...) used on the system. This permits architecture-independent sources.list files to be used. In general this is only of interest when specifying an exact path, APT will automatically generate a URI with the current architecture otherwise.
    I haven't done it, so I don't know about any "gotchas" that you might encounter.

    Have fun with it and do please post back anything you learn for the benefit of others.

    If you decide to write a new tutorial, feel free to use anything from mine that saves you time.

    I downloaded the repos this weekend and yes, you do need to specify deb-i386 and/or deb-amd64. I ran apt-mirror on a 64-bit machine and just plain "deb ..." only got the 64-bit repos. I've update my mirror.list to include "deb-i386" and "deb-amd64" and I'll see what happens tonight when I update it.

    Thanks again for your help.
