[SOLVED] Restore Packages?
« on: March 30, 2010, 02:20:51 am »

I copied the packages files into the directory:
Code: [Select]
/mnt/GUDANG/pub/veclinux/packages
Then I reinstall my VL and restore those files in the directory:
Code: [Select]
/home/ftp/pub/veclinux/packages
But when I want to install these packages I can not find it in the list of packages (on gslapt).
What should I do so I can install these packages, without having to download from the internet?

[SOLVED]

I'm not sure if clicking the Update button will pick up those packages, but you can install them from command line. Open a terminal, become root, change into the directory where the packages are stored, issue command "installpkg *.tlz". You will need to do that for each sub-dir like base-apps, net, libs etc.

I've tried that way in VL6.0-STD-Gold (clicking the Update button). But it did not work.
But... it works in VL6-Light. Problem solved

Thanks a lot
