Using debians ftpsync I've synced amd64 to my local file server, and installed debian over the network using ipxe.
It dawned on me, that the content I've downloaded needs to be shared as an apt repo, in addition to just being rsync'ed. Is this correct?
But here's something I don't get (and I don't have that much experience with apt, so forgive me!)
I have packages containing ansible in my synced folders:
./pool/main/a/ansible ./pool/main/a/ansible/ansible-doc_1.4.4+dfsg-1_all.deb ./pool/main/a/ansible/ansible-fireball_1.4.4+dfsg-1_all.deb ./pool/main/a/ansible/ansible_1.4.4+dfsg-1_all.deb ./pool/main/a/ansible/ansible-node-fireball_1.4.4+dfsg-1_all.deb
And I have puppet too:
./pool/main/p/puppet ./pool/main/p/puppet/puppetmaster-common_2.7.23-1~deb7u3_all.deb ./pool/main/p/puppet/vim-puppet_2.7.23-1~deb7u3_all.deb ./pool/main/p/puppet/puppet-testsuite_2.6.2-5+squeeze9_all.deb [...]
But when I run apt-cache search ansible I get nothing back, where as apt-cache search puppet I get a long list of stuff I can install.
deb http://10.0.4.100/debian wheezy main deb http://10.0.4.100/debian wheezy-updates main
What am I missing?
