    OSDisc installrepo problems

    Hello - I've got a terrible internet connection at home so bought the OSDisc 16 DVD repository for Ubuntu 13.10. I'm following their instructions in the ReadMe file on the first disc - but just cannot get a program called installrepo to run. Please see below - "no such file or directory". What am I missing here?

    rupert/$ ls -la tmp
    total 64
    drwxrwxrwt 8 root root 4096 Dec 28 19:49 .
    drwxr-xr-x 23 root root 4096 Dec 27 14:58 ..
    drwxrwxrwt 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 18:25 .ICE-unix
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 rupert rupert 25620 Dec 28 19:20 installrepo
    drwx------ 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 18:24 pulse-PKdhtXMmr18n

    -r--r--r-- 1 root root 11 Dec 28 18:24 .X0-lock
    drwxrwxrwt 2 root root 4096 Dec 28 18:24 .X11-unix
    rupert$ sudo /tmp/installrepo -d /media/rupert/CDROM
    [sudo] password for rupert:
    sudo: unable to execute /tmp/installrepo: No such file or directory

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forums Rupert !

    Sounds like a set of normal repository archive disks to me which can be manually added as a repository if not automatically detected as such when inserted. Could you post the contents of the "installrepo" script to let us see what it is supposed to do?
