How about Arch Linux support for those who has no internet connection??

I would like to now arch linux support for people who has no/ slow internet connection.. is there any way to installing arch + packages without internet connection??

Because from what i've read about arch linux it seems that internet connection is a must for installing aditional packages on arch...

Thank's before..

no internet connection? i'm sorry, i don't understand.

you can get the entire distro on CD i believe. then just upgrade if/when you get a connection. but for that kind of situation, arch might not be the best distro. with no internet you might be better off with something like slackware, or order the complete debian CDs somewhere and have tons of software.

When selecting a distrobution you need to choose one that is right for you. If you don't have an internet connection or have a low-bandwidth connection then you need to take that into account when considering your options. If you do that you'll realise that Arch Linux isn't suitable for you.
