How to create a new project manually

Asked by Muhammad Bashir Al-Noimi on 2010-01-21

Because I'm suffering from Keryx bugs when I create new project, I want to know how I can create new project manually with ability to update system repository content?

Currently I could successfully create new projects manually but I still unable to know how to deal with the following issues:

1) In "debian.conf" how I can know Kernel version?
2) "lists" folder has "status" file and repositories content. How I can update my system with downloaded repositories content (where I've to copies these files)?

The best way to manually create a project would be to use a default project with the same Ubuntu version as you run and simply replace the <project>/lists/status file with the /var/lib/dpkg/status file from your target machine.

But to answer your other questions:

1) The kernel version is stored for convenience and is not vital to Keryx functionality. But you can find your current kernel version by searching for the "linux" package in Synaptic and copying the installed version.
2) I'm not sure I understand your question. If you are looking for the files to fill your 'lists' directory, you should only get /var/lib/dpkg/status. Next time you update Keryx online, it will download the rest of the files for you.

I mean, after updating Keryx online I want to push these updates (files) to my system

"linux" package has many names (ex. linux-image) so what's the needed one?

Sorry for the delayed response.

You can copy the files (except the 'status' file) from <project>/lists/ to /var/lib/apt/lists/. Then run 'sudo apt-cache gencaches' to make APT read them.

As I said, the kernel version really serves no purpose in Keryx. You could use "123" and notice no real difference. However, the version of either the "linux" or "linux-image" packages should do fine.

Can you help with this problem?
