new features: September 2011 Archives

debian mirror

| | Comments (0)
Our current debian images are configured to use mirrors.kernel.org in /etc/apt/sources.list for package updates. Its normally a reliable server, but because its down right now we have setup mirrors.prgmr.com on a vps for now running apt-cacher-ng for debian packages. Eventually we plan to setup a dedicated server for a full debian, centos and ubuntu mirror, but this will help while kernel.org is down and until we get the hardware for the full mirror. To use mirrors.prgmr.com, set this in /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://mirrors.prgmr.com/debian/ squeeze main
deb-src http://mirrors.prgmr.com/debian/ squeeze main

deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
or just search and replace mirrors.kernel.org with mirrors.prgmr.com. If you are running debian lenny, make sure that is still set in the sources.list file also until you are ready to upgrade. Email support@prgmr.com if you have any questions. Thanks!
