Keryx


Hi, I am using Keryx to download packages from my windows pc and instaling them to my crunchbang system which dosent have internet access. This seems to work well but when installing some packages it is unable to authenticate them so it trys connecting to the internet to authenticate, but as I dont have an internet connection it fails. is there a way to bypass this authentication or get the package authenticated on my windows system first?

I do not know much about CrunchBang typically, but if you are getting errors on authentication, then you can download the signatures for the package and import the keys before installing the package.

I may be telling a lie. this is a what is on the screen:

Need to get 5717kB/14.4Mb of archives
After this operation, 31.5MB of additional disk space will be used.
WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated
packages
Authentication warning overridden

so what is it downloading

confused, sorry

See on the screen what it is downloading. It gives all the information on that front if you are using Package Manager.
