i now have a working apt repository for ubuntu dapper. (using reprepro)

my distributions file was

Origin: evon800v

Label: numbeheen

Suite: Ubuntu

Codename: dapper

Architectures: i386

Components: main non-free contrib universe multiverse

Description: packages to reduce having to go to the net

for adding deb files to the repository, i used

 reprepro -Vb . includedeb dapper $i 

in the base directory of the repo

i cooked up a little script on the spot!!! by adapting someone else’s loop!!! this means i’ll take up the task of learning bash scripting very soon. it saved me a lot of repetition (328 packages)



cd /home/fanen/websites/apt

for i in $incoming/*.deb; do
if [ -e $i ]; then
reprepro -Vb . includedeb dapper $i

now all the people using ubuntu courtesy of me, without internet access are gonna have an easier time getting apps.
