Re: How To: Make Your Own Ubuntu Repository DVDs
BobSongs and others who may be interested: with my last post or two in this thread I instructed an alternative approach, and not only did it work very well, I was able to save a few DVDs by putting a couple of the smaller repos like Restricted and Multiverse onto one DVD along with a portion of Main which would've taken up a separate CD or DVD! The previous way I had always made Ubuntu Repo DVDs was by following the method outlined by BobSongs, which still works great, but by altering the process as I describe in one or two of my posts in this thread, you are able to SAVE on DVD media, without having to burn a DVD of mostly wasted space and instead combining a few of the smaller repos together with any spill-over from another repo which would otherwise require another blank media CD or DVD!
If you want to conserve on blank media, give my method a try.
