Need old Packages.gz and Release Files
 
Hello,

I have had an accident on my Debian-Archiv-Server and unfortunatly the
files "Packages.gz", "Packages.bz2", "Sources.gz", "Sources.bz2" and
"Release" from the directories

/debian/dists/${RELEASE}/main/binary-${ARCH}/
/debian/dists/${RELEASE}/main/sources/
/debian/dists/${RELEASE}/contrib/binary-${ARCH}/
/debian/dists/${RELEASE}/contrib/sources/
/debian/dists/${RELEASE}/non-free/binary-${ARCH}/
/debian/dists/${RELEASE}/non-free/sources/

deleted. The special is, that I have ALL Releases where ${RELEASES} is
like:

potato: 2.2r0 bis 2.2r5 => 6 Releases
woody: 3.0r0 bis 3.0r6 => 7 Releases
sarge: 3.1r0 bis 3.1r7 => 8 Releases
etch: 4.0r0 bis 4.0r2 => 3 Releases

Does anyone has this files? (e.g from the original CD's)

I have the ugencly need to restore several millionen Symlinks.

I need it urgently for the restore of the Archive-Server (the Raid-5
is gone on Thursday 2008-03-27 because a damaged caused by water from a
neighbour)

Note1: With the Archive-Mirroe I can install or restore ANY Release
because I have all "binaries" and "sources" since "SLINK"
plus partialy from "BUZZ", "REX", "BO" und "HAMM".

Note 2: The Archive-Server has currently seven Raid-5 of each fiveteen
300 GByte harddrives (=3600 GByte set) and with the release of
Lenny I will hit the space limit of 25 TByte.
(Currently I have no sponsor and even no fixed Internet
connection, so I am definitivly Off-Line)

Thanks, Greetings and nice Day

How about [1]?

/-------------------
See http://www.debian.org/ for information about Debian GNU/Linux.

This FTP site is a repository for old debian releases. For new releases
please see ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/.

Releases are stored by their codenames under the dists/ directory.
woody is Debian 3.0
potato is Debian 2.2
slink is Debian 2.1
hamm is Debian 2.0
bo is Debian 1.3
rex is Debian 1.2
buzz is Debian 1.1

No binaries, only source, are available for rex and buzz.

If you are using APT the relevent sources.list entries are like:
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-archive/ hamm contrib main non-free
or
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian-archive/ bo bo-unstable contrib
main non-free

-------------------

E.g. [2] contains
Index of /dists/woody/main/binary-i386
[ICO] Name Last modified Size
[DIR] Parent Directory -
[ ] Packages 01-Jan-2007 21:30 6.2M
[ ] Packages.bz2 01-Jan-2007 21:30 1.3M
[ ] Packages.gz 31-May-2005 22:25 1.7M
[ ] Release 31-May-2005 22:55 95

etc.

HTH, good luck!

Johannes

Certainly archive.debian.org would have the last version of each release
(so 2.2r5, 3.0r6, etc).

> Does anyone has this files? (e.g from the original CD's)

The CDs would have had seperate (and different) Packages.gz since there
would be one on each CD covering just what was on that CD.

Neat project. I am not sure why being able to install 3.0r3 rather than
3.0r6 is necesarily very useful, but it is neat to have the choice.

Unfortunate that debian of course only keeps the current version of a
release on their servers, and archive.debian.org only ever archives the
last version of a given release.

Thank you for this hint...

Right, but if I have for example the Packages.gz fro 3.0r2
I can generate a new Packages.gz for the Mirror.

Sometimes it can help to resolv errors if you upgrade from
one release to another.

Yes unfortunately...

I think, this is WHY <archive.debian.org> can not realy run out
of Diskspace like my mirror

Maybe I ahave found a sponsor for a new cage of 15 drives since
currently it is an expensive hobby for me...

To have reproducibility of installations, where such is necessary (e.g.,
software escrow situations).
