I have a Redhat Linux Server that I'm running and I'm trying to create a update repository for Raspberry Pis, is it possible to download the update packages to my Redhat server, and if so, how?
Cloned my previous answer.
Raspbian is a derivate from Debian and it also uses Debians infrastructure. As far as I understand you want to setup your own package repository like that one used by Raspbian and Debian. First of all: the used repositories are configured in
/etc/apt/sources.list and in files in directory
/etc/apt/sources.list.d/. On Raspbian there are two files by default:
rpi ~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi # Uncomment line below then 'apt-get update' to enable 'apt-get source' #deb-src http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi rpi ~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/raspi.list deb http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/ stretch main ui # Uncomment line below then 'apt-get update' to enable 'apt-get source' #deb-src http://archive.raspberrypi.org/debian/ stretch main ui
The former repository is mainly the Debian repository http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ just compiled for armhf. The latter repository is from the Raspberry Pi Foundation and contains specific software to run the Raspberry Pi hardware, e.g. the kernel, firmware and drivers. This could be an example for your setup.
I do not have made a Debian repository before so I can give only some pointers. Here I have fond an entry for a Debian Repository Setup. You also can google for "how to make a debian repository".
