920131 - how to install packages offline?
consider an ubuntu 12.04 server which is not connected to the internet is going to be setup. consider all required packages are copied into a directory in the server, but none is installed yet.
i need to use apt-get install to install required components and i need ubuntu to refer to the directory for the required packages instead of going online to download them. this is required because the server is offline.
how is it possible?
