Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 - Installing Kernel Without Internet Connection
Nov 26, 2010
I have Ubuntu 10.04 on my PC but I do not have access to internet (I have an Acer 3610 and before to install NDSI wrapper I have to install a Kernel). I have the most recent Kernel available on my external hardrive. I do not know how to use sudo command to install it.
I just recently Ubuntu 9.10 and have never used Linux at all before. I was wondering, all the links and tips and everything tell me to use Ubuntu Software Center. I haven't had a chance to actually go to the Software Center yet but does it require an internet connection to install software or can I download the tar.gz / tar.bz2 files from sources such as Softpedia.com and still install them using Software Center without a Internet Connection?
I don't yet have an internet connection on my machine so I am using cyber cafes to do my research and whatnot. However, most of the stuff I read concerning updates and installations rely heavily on the machine using an internet connection to automatically install various packages.I don't mind reading up myself on this kind of thing but I think I need a pointer in the right direction as "ubuntu package install without apt/get" doesn't bring up much on a google search (the only entry on the first page is a post on this forum back from 2005 about kernal compiling!).
As an example, the file I would like to install is "aircrack-ng-1.0.tar.gz", which I've already downloaded and saved to my machine's desktop. I'm not really asking how to install aircrack, per se, but just any kind of package without relying on an internet connection (i.e. download the program/package to a flash disk and then on to my machine).
i am new one here and have a question.i dont have internet connection home and i want to install ubuntu. i find a dvd release here [URL].. and it suppose it has more things than the cd version.i think to it has because its a big iso file. so, if i install this one, am i going to be able to play dvds, to work with openofice, and other stufs, or do i need something else to? what about grafik card driver?
I am a new user to linux. I downloaded and installed ubuntu 9.10 on my old desktop to try it out because i have always liked the idea of linux but have never really found the time to use or learn to use it. having had an old dos computer i can vaguely remember the idea of using a command line to change directories etc. so i just decided to wipe out xp on the desktop and install ubuntu lol. Installation went smooth but then i ran into some problems.
Unfortunately i use iphone tethering for access to the internet but ubuntu will only recognize my iphone as a picture storage device. so i did some research and found that i had to download and install some packages to set up tethering on ubuntu. so on my laptop running vista i downloaded libusb-1.0.6, cmake-2.8.0, libiphone-0.9.5, usbmuxd-1.0.0, and some other packages such as ifuse and libgpod. they were all .tar.bz2 files or .tar.gz files. I put these on a jump drive and took the jumpdrive and put it into my desktop. what i was wondering is if there is a way to install these packages from a usb jumpdrive? or is there a simpler way that i may have overlooked to establish an internet connection.
I recently installed Debian "Squeeze" onto a Thinkpad T420, alongside Windows 7. During the installation Debian was unable to detect my NIC (Intel 82579LM), but otherwise the installation completed normally. I've installed the required e1000e drivers, and added "alias eth0 e1000e" to the modules file. Using lspci I can see that the computer detects the card, but still fails to load the drivers for it.
I'm at a bit of a loss, as this is my first time using Linux. After a bit of searching it looks like the 2.6.38 kernel resolves the issue with this card, so I guess that's my next step.Unfortunately all the installation instructions I've found assume an internet connection.Is there a simple way to update the kernel without a connection, or -even better- an install disc with 2.6.38 so I can start from scratch?
I've read a lot on the internet about various ways of doing this but i've been unsuccessful each time. Basically what i've done is accidently un-installed network-manager because I was having trouble staying connected on my WPA network. The easiest way of reinstalling it I know of is using the CD but I don't have a CD ROM drive and the pen drive I used to install it I no longer have.
I tried using a program called Keryx but you need python installed and from some reason this doesn't come with ubuntu 10.10. I've also downloaded the .deb packages but I still need to download 200kb which is a killer. I've also downloaded it from here too [URL] but the install file makes no sense to me as i'm not a massive linux user. One last thing reinstalling isn't really an option as i've already put a lot of time into setting up this computer.
At the moment I am installing a VMware Ubuntu machine. This machine has no internet connection.
I want to install wine, so I can install software that only runs under Windows.
I cannot find the packages to install wine under the VMware machine that will download to windows.
I have no clue on how to handle the source of wine, so I can download the source of wine, copy that to the VMware machine and use 'make' there.
How to proceed?
Ok, tried to compile source of wine on the VMware machine. It gave an error, since it was missing package flex. Compiling flex from source gave an error, since it was missing package m4. Trying to compile m4 gave an error, see make_install.log.
These were my steps:
Went to /usr/local/bin/ and unpacked m4 there. Went into the m4 directory (m4-1.4.14). /configure make make install
I can't get the configure log uploaded as an attachment, since it is too big. Splitting it into smaller sizes doesn't help either , since it will become more than 3 files (and 3 is the max to upload). If you want that log, please let me know and I will e-mail it to you.
What are my next steps to proceed? I want to compile the m4 package so I can proceed with flex.
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
I recently bougt an Asus N61DA with Windows 7. I decided to install Ubuntu alongside Windows, so I made the Ubuntu CD, just like it said. Then I inserted the CD and restarted the computer. I started the installer (ubuntu 10.10 64-bit) and chose the option where it says "install ubuntu alongside other operating systems", or something like that. So, the installation started, but then I lost the internet connection, and the installation stopped.I re-connected the computer, but the installation still wouldn't continue. I restarted the computer and then nothing happened. I've restarted it several times, but still nothing happens. I've inserted the Windows recovery CD, but it doesn't work
Luckily I have a second machine running 9.10 and could get onto the net for assistance.
I tried all sorts of modifications to sysctl, modeprobe files, etc and checked all over google for a fix.
It appears that the IPv6 settings are part of the kernel, in this case I am going back to 9.10 and staying with 9.10 until this IPv6 is sorted out. Most home routers do not have IPv6 connections, only IPv4. This lack of Internet connection has happened with both server and desktop. I do not know the reasoning behind this decision but I will not be upgrading to 10 until IPv6 is sorted for me as a home user.
Able to boot with different partitions of a 320 GB hard drive with Windows Server 2008, Ubuntu server 9.10 plus Ubuntu desktop 9.10 but IPv6 with 10.10 installs on the respective server and desktop partitions does not allow a lan connection to the router. All are 64bit downloads.

I'm a pretty new ubuntu user and I've just upgraded from 10.10. It seems to be working pretty well, except that I can't figure out how to connect to the Internet. When I click the wireless icon to try to connect, the drop down menu is as follows:
I have just installed ubuntu 10.10 on an Acer Aspire 3610 notebook. 2 GB RAM. This notebook had Internet access previously via Windows XP (now erased). Here is the partitioned drive. Two ext4 partitions for ubuntu "/" and "/home". Two ntfs partitions possibly for Windows. I have booted up the fresh installation of ubuntu 10.10. I had some glitch where I saw "Operating system not found' on booting from HDD and I wondered if this was due to failing drive.
But I've run a full test using Disk Utility and it shows as healthy. This message has gone away (I don't know why) and I can boot into ubuntu. The problem I'm trying to solve is simply no internet connection. Here are some outputs from commands ..
Sorry title should have been F13 installation without internet I am having a P4, 1GB ram, 80 GB machine. Since yesterday I am having some funny issues on this machine. i have fedora 12 installed on this machine. My mouse suddenly stop working, or the cursor changes from pointer type to a line cursor and basicaly the mouse just stops clicking. I am plannning to install fedora 13 on this machine. Have downloaded the 5 iso ( CD images).
Would choosing the option upgrade on existing Linux partition do the job? Is there a chance I loose my data files when the upgrade is done? I dont want to reinstall programs like java, eclipse, tomcat etc that I done in fedora 12. I only intend using the CD's as I dont have a lot of bandwidth and a fast internet connection to use yum.
Loss of internet connection after upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10 Like the title says, I lost my internet connection after upgrading my Ubuntu system from 8.04 to 8.10.I used the downloaded automated method. It appeared to work fine on its initial reboot into 8.10. But I noticed the internet icon indicated loss of connection. Even so, I was still able to browse the net through Firefox. But then when I rebooted the next day the opposite was true: the connection icon indicated connection, but Firefox would not actually connect, nor would update manager. It has been like this since. This is a dual boot machine, and the Windows XP Pro side still connects to the internet as usual, no problems.So how can I make my new 8.10 system connect to the internet?
I upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 lts yesterday. The upgrade went smoothly. but now I have a very slow internet connection. It is as if I am on a dial up when I have a broadband speed of 20 MB. What can I do to fix or perhaps roll-back the installation to the previous proper working state.
On trying to install Ubuntu 10.10, one PC was fine. I attempted to install it on a Lenovo Q150 using the Ubuntu Live CD, but it did not recognize a network connection. When the same PC is running Windows 7, the network connection is fine (it recognizes my NAS drive also).Has anyone else had this problem/found a solution? I'm sure that someone else has posted this, but a couple of hours' searching revealed nothing.
I tried to download some software from the Ubuntu software center, and it does not download. It does not give me an error message, it just stays at 0 bytes. It eventually tells me to check my internet connection. (this does not make sense because I am using it to write this thread) I checked synaptic package manager for correct proxy settings and it was ok. I ran
Code: sudo apt-get update
but to no avail. I am using wireless, and recently dissembled the computer to disconnect the CMOS battery, but I think that it was put back together properly.
Trying to install 10.10 from USB onto my Dell Inspiron mini 10. I am able to boot into the USB, but I cannot connect to the internet - wireslessly or otherwise. When I plug the internet cable directly into the computer that does not work. I had to fidget with some drives to get the Network Manager to work, which it finally did, but it won't connect either - just keeps asking for the password.
I did an upgrade over the internet and on rebooting after it had completed there was no internet connection. I wired in an ethernet cable and although I can access the router and ping another machine on the network, there is no internet connection.
I use the CD upgrade method to upgrade my kubuntu 10.04 to 10.10.Not to mention,the ISO image of the CD is this one :kubuntu-10.10-alternate-i386.iso.At the first run I choose YES for the prompt asking for internet connection or whatever, but I immediately realise that I have chosen a wrong option, so I exit and restart the upgrade all over again.On the second run, I choose NO for the prompt , then the installation continues until it reaches the 'fetching files' stage. It pops up and says "The upgrade has aborted. Please check your internet connection or installation media and try again. All files downloaded so far are kept."
I don't want to reinstall the whole system again because I want my applications;I don't want to use the updater to upgrade because I have a low internet speed .
