Adding BitDefender’s repo to apt-cacher

BitDefender - GUI

I had to work with Windows and its viruses, and I didn’t other option than find an anti-virus (and an antidepressant). The thing is a friend of mine, Ricardo Fuentes Del Nogal, recommended me BitDefender.I t’s okay for what I want it to (scanning some pendrives from my computer), but it could be an interesting option for those who want the paid version.

This article is about how to add BitDefender‘s repos to apt-cacher,so you can download it from an internal network, like we did with VirtualBox.

Setting BitDefender’s repos in apt-cacher

  • Edit /etc/apt-cacher/apt-cacher.conf file by appending BitDefender‘s repository:
path_map = debian ; multimedia ; bitdefender
  • Restart apt-cacher service:
service apt-cacher restart

Setting up clients

  • For the above defined mirrors add the the following into the /etc/apt/sources.list file:
deb testing main contrib non-free
deb testing main
deb bitdefender non-free

In this example, is  the apt-cacher server’s IP address.

  • Download BitDefender’s key file
wget -c
  • Install the key:
apt-key add bd.key.asc
  • Update the package list:
aptitude update
  • Now you can install any BitDefender‘s component:
aptitude install bitdefender-scanner-gui

If you are interested, there are other components like the one for Samba or the one for mailing.
