Question installing software/package without internet


Hi everyone,
I've just joined linux community for the purpose of setting up a linux BOSS server. But for now i'm just trying to get hold of the OS. As a part of this process, i'm not able to figure out how to install packages/softwares on my linux BOSS without an internet connection (My university does not allow active internet connections for projects).

Any help would be appreciated.

regards
Rishabh

BOSS is Debian-based. When you install it, it should place the DVD as an install source in
/etc/apt/sources.list.

Then, after you install it, do:
Code:
$ apt-get update
to update the package list with the contents of the DVD. After that you can use apt-get to install software from the DVD. But if you need other software, you'll need Internet.

You can download packages you need from outside of university, put them on usb and install from there with dpkg. Or, set up local repository with packages downloaded from outside university and use apt-get to install them. Or, use apt-offline to keep your machine updated, which again requires working connection from outside university.

if the BOSS server is Debian-based, then there is like, five DVDs of the Debian system,
that you can update from, as described by AwesomeMachine.

you just have to download them, from another location ..
