comment What is the recommended way to build an apt mirror with multiple versions of packages?
@sr_: I had investigated aptly before posting and it looked like it would "fit the bill", but I was hoping it could be done without switching away from apt-mirror. I'll wait to see if some other solution will crop up, and then I'll try aptly :) Thanks!

comment What is the recommended way to build an apt mirror with multiple versions of packages?
@Patrick: I tried manually "patching" Packages.gz and Packages.bz2 merging the output from dpkg-scanpackages last week, but then I had problems with unmatching hashes... I think it could work given some more time, but I was wondering if there's a less manual solution. Thanks though!

Did you enable the "nonfree" repository by chance? The package is inside the "free" one. download1.rpmfusion.org/free/el/updates/6/x86_64/repoview/…

comment How to use three monitors on a laptop?
I see.. Do you know if there's a list somewhere of USB-to-VGA adapters known to work on recent distributions? Google returns lots of dated and incomplete informations.. :/
