how can i link a folder to the Repos??

Postby knuckles on Sun Nov 09, 2008 11:06 am

Ok here what i will do:

Some app's like gimp are "never" not always up to date, but on getdeb i can download newer packages. So i will make a Folder on my harddrive who i can download the new packages and after use the normal mintUpdate, like it where in a normal online-repo, but from my hard-drive.

is that possible??
Sorry for my BAD English!!

If you download packages separately you might as well install them separately
I think aptoncd can fix this but I've never used it so I'm not sure

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
