View Full Version : [ubuntu] install linux-backports-modules-jaunty via usb
June 30th, 2009, 04:28 PM
Does any one know if the linux-backports-modules-jaunty update can be transferred to the computer via usb and then installed that way instead of using the apt-get command?
I'm extremely new to linux and the apt-get functionality and I need to update a computer to make wireless work without having a wired internet connection.
If it can be done this way can you point me to where I can get the files and how to access them via the terminal once I transfer them to the machine?
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Again the order is:
After installing all the packages just restart your pc and all should be well.
