Was wondering how people tend to propagate apt updates? There's a
pretty good description of how to set up your own apt server structure
at http://freshrpms.net/apt/server/, however this looks like overkill
for my needs.
My needs are this:
1. I have 2 PCs, both running Fedora Core 1.
2. One of the PCs I have kept up to date using apt (and also rund
3. The second PC I have just installed FC1, so is far behind the first
In theory, after updating PC1, I could make its newly downloaded RPMS
available using the description supplied in the URL above, but I am
guessing that a simpler method is also an option.
For example, provided that apt-get does not delete RPMS after
downloading them I could export the relevant RPM directory as an NFS
drive to PC2, and simply rund rpm -Uvh (or rpm -ivh) on the NFS mount on
Anyone any suggestions on how best to do this ?
 Does apt-get store or delete RPMs? Where?
