If you could get hold of a cd with a lot of packages on it that might help. Linux format magazine has a disc every month which might be good, or get hold of a copy of a related distro like fedora, and use the apps from that. Ebay 5.

PS How will you run your server with no internet connection.

I'm assuming it's just for local use, testing etc. If I wanted a production server I'd be using OpenBSD

In my utopia - I do not envisage program creators sending their program and all of its dependencies to the different distributions. Thats not what I meant. The distributions wouldnt need to have numerous versions of the dependencies. The most up to date would suffice. The programmers would simply submit their program.

I never meant that a distribution should contain many many different versions of dependencies in order to satisfy the programs. Thats stupid. Im not even talking about the distributions here at all. I dont know where you got that idea.

I am talking about the individual programmer's websites that offer their downloads - without dependencies at present. Not the distributions. I wanted a link for - say - mplayer with all its dependencies for Fedora Core 4, or Suse.... But someone has pointed out that this would take ages and would take away from the time these people actually need for programming. Which is fair enough.

Cs-cam is right - its for local use - testing.
