While playing with my old but trusty ReadyNAS NV I found that most if not all official Debian mirrors by now have deleted their archives of “Sarge”. No wonder, since that release is quite dated now. However, the operating system of the ReadyNAS is based on “Sarge” which makes installation of addons almost impossible. Luckily I found some mirrors in Taiwan and Croatia that still had all the files.
So I decided to mirror those and host my own Sarge repository on ReadyNASfreeware.org. While I was on it, I also mirrored the files from the Netgear repository. To access either, just change your
to look like this:
deb http://ftp.readynasfreeware.org/netgear readynas/ deb http://ftp.readynasfreeware.org/debian sarge main contrib non-free
I haven’t decided yet whether I’m going to mirror the source pacakges too.
