View Full Version : how to make apt-get update in offline?

March 13th, 2006, 05:03 PM
my friend in other town wants to learn ubuntu, but the problem that he has only the installed version of Hoary and installation CD for it. Now he wants to have internet in linux and the only way he can do have it is GPRS.

It's not a big problem, but the only way he can connect his mobile phone to computer is via bluetooth. So, now we think how can he install necessary packages without internet in linux (just in windows).

The biggest problem I see is that he can't do apt-get update to know which packages he need to download

So, can anybody help me and say how to do the apt-get update offline?
