Ubuntu Installation :: Any Easy Way To Do Offline Package Upgrades

Mar 13, 2011

Is there any easy way to do offline package upgrades in Ubuntu? I was using debian's repository for the longest time to get individual packages, then found launchpad. Is there a script or something that will tell you what the dependencies are then let you copy them to a thumbdrive or something?

I know online upgrades are great but there are some cases where online isn't an option. Here's an example. Getting wine. There used to be this repository of .debs from the wine website, but now I can't find it. Launchpad has it, but it's all individual files.

General :: Wine Installation On Offline Computer - Ubuntu 9.04

Jul 10, 2009

I'm brand-new to Linux and Ubuntu, and I need to install Wine. I'm installing it on an offline computer, (I'm using Windows on the online pc), and I'm in need of the extra libraries required for proper Wine installation. The easiest way I've seen is to download/install the libraries via internet through the terminal. I can't though, because the computer's offline.

OpenSUSE :: Download Package Dependencies For Offline Installation?

Oct 25, 2009

is there a way to get urls of the packages that have been updated and then download them in another computer? like this feature of ubuntu HOWTO: Download package dependencies for offline installation - Ubuntu Forums

its a simple feature and its present in smart and synaptic,yet its not in yast (or i havent found it yet.

i would use smart package manager but in my home connection for checking for updates ,yast is better ( smart downloads filelist.xml.gz that is very way biger than what yast downloads (though it enables smart to show filelist of package BEFORE installing) .so at home i can check for package update with yast ,buy downloading them is very hard. (my connectioon is very bad (i live in iran) and yast mirrors are NOT the best of servers ,so yast gets interrupted in middle downloading a rpm and the whole process is waiting for me to press retry ,so i cant do updates and installs overnight.btw is there some way to tell it to retry always or a number of times automatically? )

i need the url links of rpms so i download them separately and install them.

Fedora Installation :: Can't Install Samba Offline

May 26, 2011

I downloaded and installed the newest version of Fedora, version 15, in my refurbished computer. It's the CD version; so much of the stuff are missing, including an office suite. I didn't have a DVD-ROM drive on the system, thus I installed the CD version. On the CD version, I was displeased that I can't install Samba offline; I had to download it. Don't ask me why I don't want to download it, it's just my preference to be able to have a basic computer function like Samba on an official distribution, like a calculator, an office suite (again, was left out), and a file manager.

Fedora's website describes the DVD edition of the operating system as having more software than the CD version. Now, for those who have used the new Fedora and also used Samba, does it come installed, or do you have to go online to download it? I understand if you don't want MP3s or DVD decryption software, but how does LAN file-sharing count as something that's illegal?

Debian :: Creating Offline Package Backups?

Apr 6, 2010

For a project I have had to migrate from FreeBSD to Linux and I have decided to choose Debian because I have had good experiences with it.However, since my main development machines are completely offline I have run into a little bit of trouble.Is there a way to specify a .deb package and get a tool to recursively list (and fetch) all dependency packages that are not included in the base install and put them in a folder?

I do not like to be tied to the internet (Never a good idea) and so this would save me a heap of trouble (and journeys to an online PC)Once I have these folders containing packages, then I can simple cd into one of them, dpkg -i the relevent .deb and not have to rely on the DVDs or worry about connecting to an online repositoryLife will be good!Suffice to say FreeBSD can do this well so I strongly believe that Debian will be able to aswell but since it is not normally done, I havn't found much on google about it

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Crashes On Gparted During Install

Apr 29, 2010

I have been trying to resolve this issue and it's bewildering me... I have been trying to do the install on Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) and after setting up the keyboard language the installer locks up. The error message mentions it was unable to launch Gparted as it crashed.

I have also tried to launch Gparted from the system admin apps and Gparted will show it is trying to read the hard drives and then crashes. I have tried updating Gparted from the repo's and on launching it also crashes too.

Ubuntu Installation :: Computer Freezes When Hit 'upgrade' On Package Manager

Feb 23, 2010

I seem to have a small problem. Since september, i hooked up an old Acer laptop (with just 560 RAM and a 16 mib graphical card) to a computer screen, a keyboard and a mouse, so that i had an extra 'computer' for my mother to use. Old people prefer bigger screens to ponder upon.

But anyways, each time i want to update or upgrade the 9.04 Ubuntu distribution, it freezes. This is quite annoying since i really want it to upgrade to 9.10, for possible faster results.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Install - Partman Doesn't Detect Disks, But GParted Does?

Feb 21, 2010

Using install disc burned from ubuntu-9.10-desktop-amd64.iso ; disc verified. Could not install because installation hung during partman. Booted into LiveCD (using same disc), and GParted works, but partman does not.

I've searched Google and this Forum with no luck; but perhaps I'm just not asking correctly. Any help - even a workaround Is there a way to use something other than partman, or to mount the root, home, and swap in a way that makes partman skip it during install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Make A Blank Partition With Gparted And Install Lucid On It

Apr 30, 2010

how to upgrade my ubuntu 9.10 system. I would like to do a clean install of lucid, but I have way too many files. I have a big hard drive, so space was not a problem, and things got out of hand ^^ One thing you should know is that I have plenty of room for my files even if the drive was half it's size, so my idea is possible space-wise. (And I am prepared if this fails. I have backed up my stuff, but would like if it I didn't have to rely on that)

What I want to do is make a blank partition with gparted and install lucid on it. Then I want to keep it a dual boot just to make sure my hardware is working ok, then move my home folder to the new partition, make the lucid partition take the whole hard drive, and delete karmic. I do not want to upgrade because I messed up my install a lot while learning linux, so I really need to start over.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Partition Resize On Install / Live Gparted Crashes?

Oct 10, 2010

Want to repartition/resize existing 1/2 full 60MB sda2 currently containing NTFS. The "Allocate drive space" does not seem to have a resize option (the 10.04 docs claim there was a resize option here). When I run 10.10 gparted in live mode gparted crashes for unknown reason before it even finishes scanning the disk. Am I missing something here? (Never tried to resize an ntfs part. with Ubuntu.) The laptop I am installing this on currently has XP that crashes a lot for unknown reasons.

Ubuntu :: Install Blueman - Offline Install (iPhone Tethering)?

Dec 29, 2010

I have just installed ubuntu on my machine which doesn't have Internet. I can access the net on my laptop and copy any files over. I am wanting to install blueman to tether my iPhone. I cannot find a .deb of it, so downloaded the tar.gz but the stock install doesnt have a compiler. I could download and copy over a compiler, but I'm guessing I'm going to be here hours copying over each dependancy that I come across (I'm guessing there may be a few) how I can tether my iPhone or how I can install blueman? Does anyone know of any pre-built packages I can just copy n install?

General :: Getting All RPMs By 'yum Install Pkg1 Pkg2 Pkg3' To Install On Offline System ?

Jun 12, 2011

I need to somehow do a yum installation (or equivalent of) on a system that is offline with no access to the internet. (I do have access to another Linux system that has internet access, but the Linux installations on both systems have different packages installed and enabled.)

Let's say the command to enter is 'yum install pkg1 pkg2 pkg3' (the documentation for some applications I need indicate the installation instructions this way, and not as the actual RPMs I need). Is there a way for me to run that on my offline system?

e.g. one way I can think of is to run that command on the online system, somehow if possible take note of what RPMs get installed, then transfer them to the offline system via USB and install all the RPMs via rpm command.

The problem with my above idea is that the two systems have different packages enabled, so even if yum on the online system shows a few dependencies being downloaded, I could run download and install all these RPMs and their dependencies on the offline system only to find several more missing dependencies, and dependencies of those dependencies.

General :: Partition Gparted Fdisk / When Reduced The Size Of Some Linux Partitions Using Gparted?

Sep 18, 2009

I have 3 Ubuntu installations & a PCLINUXOS, plus Windows XP installed on one hard disk. I still can boot to each one of them and can mount each one using Ubuntu.

The problem "may" have occurred when I reduced the size of some linux partitions using gparted. I still have plenty of space in each of those partitions.

When I started gparted all of the HD was unallocated. I did that from each ubuntu installation and the PCLINUX installation, plus LIVECDs. All indicated the space was unallocated.

When I did an fdisk -l from a Puppy Linux LiveCD I got a normal start and ends of each partition.

When I tried it from Ubuntu installation or live cd, I received the following types of responses:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda5

Disk /dev/sda5: 28.5 GB, 28566397440 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 3473 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo fdisk -u /dev/sda5

The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 3473.There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,and could in certain setups cause problems with:

1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK) Plus the Windows partition seems to go over its limits.

Since all of my OS installations are still working, I don't know how critical this is. From reading another post, I understand this might be able to be fixed by making some changes in fstab.

Ubuntu :: Download From Apt-Get For Later Installation Offline

Mar 5, 2011

I know I can build a local repository but I'd like to try just moving the appropriate .deb files. My problem is not knowing which files I need and it what order. Example...
I want to install nfs-common

Doing apt-get install nfs-common --- does it all for me when I'm online. So I looked in the /var/cache/apt/archives to see what was installed. I found two nfs files...

But when I tried to install those on another machine I found I was missing additional files.

For future installations. How do I find all the dependencies and the ORDER they need to be installed so I can write my own script and install them to a machine that is offline?
