Get-NonFree-NonUS iconGet-NonFree-NonUS 1.7

Get-NonFree-NonUS project allows you to automatically download non-free and/or non-US packages from a Debian GNU/Linux server.
Get-NonFree-NonUS project allows you to automatically download non-free and/or non-US packages from a Debian GNU/Linux server and generate an unofficial cdrom image. You can freely choose release, arch and server.

Usage:

To download and create a new image just run the script in an empty directory on a filesystem that supports symlinks.

To upgrade an existing cdrom image just copy the contents to a writeable directory and rerun the script. It will only download the new files and save a lot of download time.

This script has to run on a filesystem which supports symlinks.

For using PROXY servers You have to define the environment variables http_proxy and possibly ftp_proxy.

If You want to use PROXY authentication You can use the environment variable WGET_OPTS:

WGET_OPTS="--proxy=on --proxy-user=foo --proxy-passwd=bar" http_proxy="http://http-proxy.anywhere.org:80" ftp_proxy="http://ftp-proxy.anywhere.org:80" ./get-nonfree-nonUS

What's New in This Release:

The actual package download procedure was changed a little to be able to reuse an already established connection to the server.
This should increase speed and reduce the load on the servers.
