Speedup you apt

April 21, 2007

Apt is the best friend for any deb dependend linux like debian , ubuntu etc.

You can speed up your apt by searching the nerestrepositery of apt (for your distro/linux)

I tested some tools to do this, APT-SPY shows the best performance )

From manpage:

apt-spy is a program that tests a series of Debian archive mirrors for bandwith. It writes an /etc/apt/sources.list with the fastest server.

Run this command as su or root next thing will done by apt-spy, it will write a new /etc/apt/sources.list and the olde one will be backup with sources.list.bak

apt-spy -d unstable -n 5

here -d means which version

-n mean number of repositery will added source.list fine

“The GTK-Qt Theme Engine (also known as gtk-qt-engine) is a GTK 2 theme engine
that calls Qt to do the actual drawing. This makes your GTK 2 applications
look almost like real Qt applications and gives you a more unified desktop
experience.

Please note that this package is targeted at KDE users and therefore provides
a way to configure it from within KControl.”
