Hello mepis people,
I with the help of others have been working on putting together an apt repository for antix. While trying to set it up, I have come accross a problem that is proving to be rather difficult to solve.
Currently I am trying to build the repository using reprepro. It works out great as the root user, or as a regular user with root priveleges. I would like to have it working as a regular user without the need to be referanced to "root" in any way. Every thing that I can think of at the moment allways ends up with the same result from reprepro.
The gpg key for the SignWith option is made as root using the gpg --gen-key command
option (1) RSA and RSA
0 = key does not expire
From my lack of ability to solve this we have looked into other repository management utilities such as apt-move which skips every single file I tried to add. Right now I am feeling open to any comments / suggestions that people may have on how to setup and run an apt repository.
The basic requirements we are looking for: (That I can think of)
1. multiple user access. (So that all contributing developers can upload to the repository)
2. gpg signed ( So apt does not ask to verify the install )
3. Support for multiple branches
testing full main
testing base main
testing core main
Any comments / suggestions / questions will be greatly appreciated
