jigdo-mirror - Maintain a mirror of images offered with jigdo
jigdo-mirror [ config-file ]
See jigdo-file(1) for an introduction to Jigsaw Download.
jigdo-mirror is a script intended for people who want to offer direct
HTTP or FTP downloads of files for which only the jigdo and template
files are available.
As the first step of using jigdo-mirror, you need to set up normal
HTTP/FTP/rsync mirroring both of the ‘.jigdo’/‘.template’ files and of
the parts that are needed for the reconstruction of the images. For
example, in the case that you want to mirror Debian CD images with
jigdo-mirror, you need a mirror of the ‘.jigdo’/‘.template’ files and a
Debian mirror on the local machine.
At regular intervals (preferably immediately after the normal mirroring
has finished), schedule a run of jigdo-mirror. It will search through a
given directory for any ‘.jigdo’ files and attempt to create all images
offered by each file.
The script requires you to set a number of variables - please refer to
the start of /usr/bin/jigdo-mirror for a description of each of them.
Since /usr/bin/jigdo-mirror will be overwritten whenever you upgrade
jigdo-mirror, it is highly recommended not to change the settings
directly in this script. Instead, personal settings should be saved in
a file called .jigdo-mirror in your home directory, or in a different
file whose name is then passed to the script as its first (and only)
command line argument.
CD images for Debian Linux can be downloaded with jigdo
Jigsaw Download <URL:http://atterer.net/jigdo/> was written by Richard
Atterer <jigdo atterer.net>, to make downloading of CD ROM images for
the Debian Linux distribution more convenient.
