i am using a Debian 7.3 with debpartial-mirror in order to create and maintain an offline mirror. Since i need only the basic packages (Packages needed for Installation via PXEboot and maybe the most common packages that are installed afterwards) i can't figure out, how to achiev this.

Right now, the mirror is trying to clone the whole archive, but i don't need all Packages, neither do i have a good connection to the internet to maintain the Archive properly if it is that big.

Any help is appreciated.

my debpartial-mirrir.conf is :

;;
;; debpartial-mirror configuration file.
;;

[GLOBAL]
;; Show debug information?
;;debug = DEBUG

;; Mirror destination directory
mirror_dir = /install/debian/debpartial-mirror/

;; Which architectures should I download?
architectures = amd64

;; What should I look for, by default?
components = main contrib non-free
distributions = stable

;; What should I get?
get_suggests = true
get_recommends = true
get_provides = true
get_sources = false
get_packages = true

[wheezy]
server = http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian
components = main contrib non-free
distributions = stable
;;filter = subsection:base priority:important
get_sources =false

[wheezy-updates]
server = http://ftp.debian.org/debian
components = main contrib non-free
distributions = wheezy-updates
filter = subsection:base priority:important
resolve_deps_using = wheezy


[wheezy-security]
server = http://security.debian.org/
components = main contrib non-free
distributions = wheezy/updates
filter = subsection:base priority:important
resolve_deps_using = wheezy

[wheezy_debian-installer]
server = http://ftp.debian.org/debian
components = main/debian-installer
distributions = wheezy

;; What should I look for, by default? components = main contrib non-free distributions = stable your problem is here I guess your asking for everything, I think contrib and non-free are useless for basics installation –  Kiwy Mar 14 at 9:12
    
thanks. will have a look into it on monday. Right now i have another test running. since debpartial wont tell you in forhand how big the mirror is going to be and my slow connection, i will have to wait for current test to finish. I will keep you up to date –  Yunalescar Mar 14 at 9:16
