  This document is intended to provide the reader with a basic understanding of
  how to configure and use the newly available APT repository for supplemental
  EnGarde packages.

  It is assumed that the reader of this document is a somewhat advanced user
  who does not mind working from the shell and knows how to use a basic text
  editor such as vi(1) or pico(1).

  This document will walk the reader through the following steps:

    * Downloading and configuring the APT package.

    * Keeping the local package index files up to date with the repository.

    * Installing packages from the repository

    * Upgrading packages against what is available in the repository.

Getting Started
  To get started, download and install the 'apt' package:

    # wget http://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/people/ryan/engarde/feint/RPMS.extras/apt-0.3.19cnc55-1.5.0.i386.rpm

    # lidsadm -S -- -LIDS_GLOBAL
    # rpm -Uvh apt-0.3.19cnc55-1.5.0.i386.rpm

  Next, put the following lines into /etc/apt/sources.list:

    rpm http://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/people/ryan engarde/feint extras
    rpm-src http://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/people/ryan engarde/feint extras

  Finally, run 'apt-get update' to synchronize your local package index files
  against what is available in the repository:

    # apt-get update

Getting to Know apt-get(8)
  apt-get is a very easy tool.  To install a package:

    # apt-get install <package>

  For example, 'apt-get install nmap' would install the nmap package and any
  other packages on which it depends.

  apt-get can also be used to perform upgrades:

    # apt-get upgrade

  This command will upgrade any package you retrieved from the repository with
  the latest available version.

Adding Packages
  We are always looking for more packages to add to the repository.  Send all
  requests for new or updated packages to the engarde-users mailing list.

  Below is a list of mirrors:

  * ftp.lug.udel.edu (Delaware, USA)

    rpm http://ftp.lug.udel.edu/pub/distributions/engarde/people/ryan engarde/feint extras
    rpm-src http://ftp.lug.udel.edu/pub/distributions/engarde/people/ryan engarde/feint extras

  * ftp.ibiblio.org (North Carolina, USA)

    rpm http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/engarde/people/ryan engarde/feint extras
    rpm-src http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/engarde/people/ryan engarde/feint extras

  All of the packages available in the APT repository are supported via the
  engarde-users mailing list:


  Please e-mail the list if you have any problems installing or using any
  of the packages in this repository.
