So, here I am, having migrated the first of the 8 Manjaro installations in my household to EOS, and I will do so for the next 7. In the past I used a local Manjaro Mirror, and I intend to continue this now with EOS. So basically I will need a local Arch Mirror and on top of the usual Arch packages I need a local EOS mirror. Installing the needet stuff is quite similar to what I have done with the Manjaro setup, so no questions how to install the tools, setup the rsync and so on.
The question is: Do I install it on an Arch or EOS system or not? My Manjaro Mirror was based on Manjaro, which was kinda okayish with monthly updates, but goind with rolling release on a server feels kinda… undesired. I have quite some servers (based on VMs/LXC/bare metall) which almost all run debian, because it is quite stable and I know it a bit. So my instinctive approach would be: install debian, but ssh server, rsync, ftp and webser on it and call it a day. But maybe there are good reasons to do otherwise? Anyone using a local repo? What’s your approach?
P.S.: Local pac-ache was tried, but doesn’t solve my needs - I have two machines in my household which have good local network speed but HORRIBLY internet speed.
