View Full Version : [xubuntu] Installing from old version Ubuntu CDs

How does one install a packages from a live-CD of an old version of Ubuntu?
To be specific, I've got a 10.04 live CD (with a Broadcom driver I need), but when I launch synaptic to add repos from CD, it shows nothing in the appropriate field.

I'm on xubuntu 11.04 now (probably doesn't matter?).

Im not sure if this is work but put CD in drive and then in terminal

sudo apt-cd add
sudo apt-get update

These commands should add CD as repo.

Actually, it's
apt-cdrom add. Nevertheless, I managed to add it, but I couldn't install any drivers, as it gave out an error in process (I no longer remember the text, some function failed). It was easier to re-install the system.
