I own an old machine ( PII 300 Mhz 54 Mb RAM
) I only use for downloads. Since the machine isn't powerful enough to run even wmii ( :O ), installing Debian, Ubuntu or such thing is out of question (actually the machine runs under Slackware 12.0.0).
Anyway, I need to fetch Ubuntu repositories for offline use (I recently converted my family to Linux but they only have dial-up Internet).
I recently found debmirror was a bare Perl script making it possibly usable under a "not Debian" distro. Actually, it always exits with error(s) when run.
Here is the command-line used:
debmirror --nosource -m --passive --host=ca.archive.ubuntu.com --root=/media/disk/ubuntu --method=ftp --progress --dist=hardy --section=main,multiverse,universe,restricted --arch=i386 --ignore-release-gpg /media/disk/ubuntu
Can't locate LockFile/Simple.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i486-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8 /usr/

Any help would be appreciated,
thank you for your attention.
