A modern take on the Debian archive.
This repository has been forked (in the traditional sense of the word) from Richard Crowley's freight repository. A fork had become necessary because the main project was not actively maintained and serious issues had started to crop up. While fixes and improvements were available in various freight GitHub forks, they were not merged to the main project. This fork and the associated GitHub organization, freight-team, attempts to fix these issues.
Install Freight and create a minimal configuration in
/etc/freight.conf as appropriate containing the name of your GPG key:
Add packages to particular distros:
freight add foobar_1.2.3-1_all.deb apt/squeeze apt/lucid apt/natty
Build the cache of all the files needed to be accepted as a Debian archive:
If your system has GnuPG 2.x make sure that a gpg-agent is running and that you have installed a pinentry package (e.g. pinentry-curses) that suits your needs. On freight 0.3.11 and older you may also need to set the GPG_TTY environment variable like this:
/var/cache/freight via your favorite web server and install it as an APT source:
echo "deb http://example.com $(lsb_release -sc) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/example.list sudo wget -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/example.gpg http://example.com/keyring.gpg sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get -y install foobar
git clone git://github.com/freight-team/freight.git cd freight && make && sudo make install
From a Debian archive
wget -O - https://swupdate.openvpn.net/repos/repo-public.gpg|sudo apt-key add - echo "deb http://build.openvpn.net/debian/freight_team $(lsb_release -sc) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/freight.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get -y install freight
From a custom-made Debian package
build-essential package installed. Clone the freight repository, build a package and install it:
git clone git://github.com/freight-team/freight.git cd freight && dpkg-buildpackage -uc -us -b sudo dpkg -i ../freight_<version>-<build>_all.deb
From Fedora/EPEL repositories
EL users must first configure EPEL.
yum -y install freight
There's also French documentation assembled by Valérian Beaudoin.
