Template:Build Documentation apt-cache


Using an apt cache will greatly improve build speed when building several times in a row (debugging, development).

If you are interested, click on Expand on the right.

In short: just get an apt cache running and set the REPO_PROXY environment variable.


sudo apt-get install apt-cacher-ng

Be sure to have a firewall, so not the whole internet can use your apt-cacher-ng service.

sudo REPO_PROXY= ./whonix_build ...

If you are building inside a non-Whonix VM, you could use an apt cache on the host. In that case adjust the IP accordingly. (And manually test it is reachable.) If you are building inside a (Whonix) VM, you can just install the apt cache inside the VM and the point to a localhost apt cache.
