Debian software and APT archive

Introduction

The server debian.frodo.looijaard.name hosts a public APT archive with software which is not available in mainstream Debian. It is software which I have written myself, and packages which I have Debianized.

To access the APT archive, you need to edit your /etc/apt/source.list file. Add the following lines:

deb     http://debian.frodo.looijaard.name/public/VERSION VERSION PROGRAMS
deb-src http://debian.frodo.looijaard.name/public/VERSION VERSION PROGRAMS

 VERSION is one of sarge, etch, lenny or wheezy.

The PROGRAMS are a list of one of more space-seperated programs, as given below.

If you get an error regarding an unavailable public key, like below, you need to import my GnuPG/PGP key.

W: GPG error: http://debian.frodo.looijaard.name sarge Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY C67DE433B014A343
