Hi all,

I have read that by using the command sudo apt-cdrom add
we can use CD ROM as repository, in the same way how can we use pen drive as a repository ?

NB: I use ubuntu 8.04

The following site may help you.

If you already have everything formatted correctly you may try adding something like the following (also taken from the website given previously) in your /etc/apt/sources.list file


deb file:///home/aisotton/rep-exact binary/
deb-src file:///home/aisotton/rep-exact source/
