Euh... why would you want to do that in the first place?

Those source CDs only contain source code. I guess you could create your own installation CD using the Debian source CDs, but you would need an other already working system for that (how else can you compile any code...).
Even than, this is more something for LFS or Gentoo (not really my thing).

If you just want Debian, you don't need the source CDs but only the binary ones.

If you don't have an internet connection, you can order all of them online for a very cheap price.

Thanks all.
I know about binary CDs, and i have Internet connection to download CDs only, but I can't use my modem in Linux.

I just want to build my custom Debian (from source CDs).
Is there a build utility or scripts to do it without wget or apt-get?

For building a custom(a fork like Ubuntu, Mepis, ...) Debian system you would still have to start with binaries.
Some info:
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianCustomCD

If you really want do everything from source, it doesn't really matter were they come from and neither will it still be a Debian system.
See LFS:

LFS is other thing and other way.
I asked about Debian.

the way in that link: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianCustomCD
uses apt tech and similar.

My question:
- How I build Debian from source if I have all source and binary CD's without internet connections.

Why? With LFS you start from a base system (like Debian) and next you install everything from source.

Debian is build around apt(using dpkg/dpkg-deb). See Debian as a huge software collection with packages that are all compatible and installable via Apt. Debian without Apt/DPKG would end up as an LFS system.[/QUOTE]

Without Apt and or DPKG/DPKG-deb (the binary way), you can't.
You could build (and optimise) your own .deb packages from the source CDs (not needed though) but next, you would still need to install(DPKG/DPKG-deb) them as binaries to remain Debian compatible.

Why not simply using the binary CDs?

PS: If you're looking for a source distribution, Debian is not your thing.
PS PS: src.deps are only meant to rebuild a packacke if you don't like the existing one...

And then again, it might just be -- there are very few things you can do in other distros that you cannot do also in Debian.

No, Debian is a source distribution..!
and it's open source..
and you can build it from source.

and I am never said: I don't want to use dpkg/dpkg-deb before,
just I don't want to use apt-get or wget for initial system building.
So, I just want to build a system with offline.

I know I can use binary, but for many useful reasons I want to build them from source.

Seems I've just been wasting my time...

Next time use google. Since you don't even seem to understand the meaning of OSS, I can't help thinking you're just trolling.
