Welcome to the myguard debian/ubuntu repository!

My name is Thijs Eilander, a lazy admin from Amsterdam who got tired of dealing with outdated software, missing features, and unreliable packages. Frustrated with the hassle of keeping things up to date without causing chaos, I decided to take matters into my own hands. The solution? Building my own packages the Debian/Ubuntu way, automating the process as much as possible, and hosting them in my own apt-get repository. Since I know there are other lazy admins out there, I’ve decided to share it with you all. Lazy admins unite!

The majority of these packages consist of rebuilds, backports, and updates from the latest (or upcoming) LTS or release versions, adhering to recent Debian/Ubuntu standards and conventions. I ensure that the packages are always up-to-date with the latest releases. Switching between versions should be seamless unless you’re using specific extra options and optimizations that my builds might offer.

Most of the builds are now automated. A cronjob ensures that a new version is built as soon as it’s released, unless there are patches causing issues. In such cases, I’ll try to address them promptly. If a package remains out-of-date for an extended period, please feel free to notify me.

If there’s something missing or you have suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact me! 😉

Quick setup:

wget https://deb.myguard.nl/pool/myguard.deb
dpkg -i myguard.deb
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
