update install applics on Ubuntu 8.04LTS without Inet
Thanks for yr reply. I now try to put my downloaded debs to ~/sharedebs folder of my home computer without Internet conn. sorry, in my first post i've left out the out in without Internet conn. then i try the command
sudo dpkg-scanpackages sharedebs /dev/null|gzip > sharedebs/Packages.gz.
I have the same replies which are
bash : sharedebs/Packages.gz = No such file or directory.
sudo : dpkg-scanpackages = command not found.
i then try man dpkg-scanpackages and got reply that no manual entry for dpkg-scanpackages.
i then try man dpkg -scanpackages and get the man for dpkg command with no explanation for scanpackages switch.
Pls help me for solution. Thanks in anticipation.
