Can I update from another hard disk/running machine?


I have just run my poor little 6gb drive to it capacity and am currently offloading another bigger drive to install Kubuntu (6.10) rather than go and download all the 200odd mb of update packages and apps, can I update from the old 6gb drive or fire that drive up on another machine and update the packages locally?

Thanks in advance...!

You would have to have those updates in the form of debs and make that machine a repository. You'll be better off downloading the updates from the internet.
