Ubuntu universe on CD

Hi all.
I have PC in place with no internet. And it run's kubuntu I'd like install some addition applications from repository, how could I do this?
I have few servers and desktop running debian sarge at work. I'd like to use something like apt-zip but I seesms tha there are no such package in ubuntu. How could I get (k)ubuntu 5.10 local mirror? Could I use debmirror from sarge to get ubuntu mirror ? Official mirror is complete, so dumb rsync will not help me.

I don't know how to use apt-zip, but it is in the Universe Repository. According to "apt-cache showpkg apt-zip", it only depends on apt itself. So you could download it from Here, and install it using dpkg.

You can also download the package and all dependencies, and install them manually, but that may be difficult

I hope this helps

I made a copy of dibmirror script in sarge, replace "debian" to "ubuntu" everywhere in scrip and start mirroring with:
./debmirror --progress --dist=breezy --arch=i386 --nosource -s main,universe --method=http --ignore-release-gpg --ignore-missing-release -v
I't seems to work, now I'm waiting for results...
And maybe first step with change debian to ubuntu in script is not neceesary at all, my be, if I specifiy "--root=ubuntu" debmirror will work also... I'll test it...


mirror, package, ubuntu
