    Curious, mine only came out to 36.3GB when adding the deb-src entries???

    I did i386 and amd64 - binary and source.

    I have maybe two or three 64 bit machines as of right now, but two of them are ESXi servers, so I figured what the heck...

    Re: apt-mirrored repository

    IMO, a better (different?) way to save bandwidth is to use squid-deb-proxy (and squid-deb-proxy-client). This doesn't do a periodic download, which is the reason I use apt-mirror on mine (slow bandwidth )

    The way squid-deb-proxy works is like apt-cacher-ng, with one huge improvement.

    1) You install squid-deb-proxy on a server. It will cache downloaded deb packages when requested. Also install squid-deb-proxy-client so the server will use the proxy server for updates (itself being the proxy server)

    2) You install squid-deb-proxy-client on any other machine you want to update from the server. The way this differs from apt-cacher-ng is auto-configuration. You don't have to do any configuration of apt. When you do an apt-get update on your machine, it will look for the squid proxy (via avahi) and update from it if it finds it. If it doesn't find one (like if you had a laptop and were somewhere offsite) then it would download from the internet.


    For the OP though, I don't think that would work as the mini iso likely doesn't have squid-deb-proxy-client. Just wanted to mention this here for future users.
