APT-SETUP(8)                System Manager's Manual               APT-SETUP(8)



NAME
       apt-setup - add apt download sources

SYNOPSIS
       apt-setup [probe] [-N]

DESCRIPTION
       apt-setup  is  an interactive program that simplifies adding sources to
       apt's sources.list. It knows about all the major debian mirrors and can
       help you select one. It can even use apt-cdrom(8) to scan CDs.

OPTIONS
       probe  By  default  no  probing  of CDs is done. Passing "probe" as the
              first argument to this program will make it probe for  a  CD  in
              the  drive on startup and add it to sources.list. This is useful
              on initial debian installs, to  minimize  interaction  with  the
              user.

       -N     This parameter allows apt-setup to run in noninteractive mode if
              its debconf questions have been preseeded.
