 #Syarat 1: Profile APT

One thing to note, the composition of APT package installed on each computer is unique. Packages that are required to install Gimp applications on my computer, it may be different from the packages required to install Gimp on my friend’s computer. So even in other computers.

Then, how to alldeb_maker on my computer can make alldeb composition suitable to install the application on my friend’s computer? Well, I need is a computer APT profile my friends.

What I refer to as “APT profile” is a file called ‘status’ which is in the directory / var / lib / dpkg. This file contains a list of all installed packages and their status. By reading a copy of the file / var / lib / dpkg / status belongs to my friend’s computer, then alldeb_maker on my computer would be able to organize files alldeb composition right package.

So, the first condition for use alldeb_maker is that we must have a copy of the file / var / lib / dpkg / status of the computers that we are needed.

#Syarat 2: Repository & Architecture
The next requirement, distributions alldeb_maker computers and computer alldeb_user must come from the same repository, and the same architecture.
For example;

– If my computer 32-bit Ubuntu 12:10 while my friend 64-bit Ubuntu 12:10 -> can not
Reason: The difference in architecture

– If my computer while my friend’s Ubuntu Ubuntu 12:04 12:10 -> do
Reason: 12:04 Ubuntu using the Ubuntu repository Ubuntu Precise 12:10 while using the Ubuntu repository Quantal

– If my computer while my friend Xubuntu 12.04.1 12.04.2 Lubuntu -> can
Reason: Both use repository Ubuntu Precise

– If my computer while my friend Kubuntu 12.04.1 LinuxMint 13 (Ubuntu-based) -> can be, but probably not all applications
Reason: LinuxMint 13 can use the packages from the Ubuntu repository Precise, but there are parts that are not derived from the repository Ubuntu Precise

– etc.
