APT::Default-Release "stable";Now I naively thought I could just run apt-get update. ERRR. Wrong! Right at the end I was greeted with this:
Speicherzugriffsfehleresen... 97%What a charming misspelled useless cryptic error message, just the way I like them. After some research I found out that this message seems to read
Segmentation faultsts ... x%on English systems. Some more research brought me here. Possibly some good tips there, but none of them helped. What did help was this: Increase the cache limit for apt-get! Add this to your apt.conf:
APT::Cache-Limit "20000000";If it still doesn't work, you might have to increase it even more. It would have saved me a lot of time if apt-get would just tell me "Your cache size is too small for the selected number of package sources. Increase the cache limit by setting the APT::Cache-Limit in your apt.conf file, for example APT::Cache-Limit "20000000";" Oh well.
did not work for me either on RHEL4
Just gave the nail on the head!
6 month later, this is still not fixed...
It works, thank you!
