Ubuntu Repository on DVDs available at Zyxware - Order it Now

March 05, 2008 - 22:41

The full set of Ubuntu Repository DVDs (set of 5 DVDs) is now available. You can request for your copy of the Ubuntu Repositories through our RequestCD program. The ubuntu repository DVDs contain the complete set of packages under the main, universe, multiverse and restricted repositories in Ubuntu. Please note that we will mail out the DVDs only within India.

If you have the complete Ubuntu Repository you do not have to have an internet connection to install any package that is normally available through Synaptic Package Manager. First create a set of directories like /var/ubuntu/dvd-n where n is the DVD number. Then copy the contents of the Ubuntu Repository DVDs to five folders. Edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following lines

deb file:///var/ubuntu/dvd-1 main restricted multiverse universe
deb file:///var/ubuntu/dvd-2 main restricted multiverse universe
deb file:///var/ubuntu/dvd-3 main restricted multiverse universe
deb file:///var/ubuntu/dvd-4 main restricted multiverse universe
deb file:///var/ubuntu/dvd-5 main restricted multiverse universe

Now run apt-get update and you are all set. You are liberated from the net. You don't have to be connected always. You can always sample any of the 23000 odd packages in the Ubuntu repositories any time you wish to, without worrying about the bandwidth.

Hi,

Nice to read this message.
I am waiting for this for 2 years.

What packages you give?

What about multimedia codes?

Thanks.

Yes the set of DVDs contain the complete set of packages on the main universe multiverse and restricted repositories available from ubuntu.com.

I have got those dvd repositories by VPP. but it seems not all packages available in them. i have added those dvds with synaptic. when i tired to install k3b its showing that libqt3-mt is not present like that even when i was installing vlc player there was package like libnavdvd which i had to download from internet.

i think those missing packaes are also packages from ubuntu community. Is there any packages which are not available with those dvds or i was somewhere wrong...

thank you

I need the feature of linux
I want to know all about
I am ready to face all the difficulties
Is there any one?

I would like to have the hardy heron(desktop) repository,both 32 bit and 64 bit.
Its good to have the LTS version since we can use it for 3 years with support rather than switching every 6 months.
Is it available with you?

We are currently downloading the repositories. We should have in soon. The moment we have it ready we will get it up in the RequestCD system

I've found this as a good place to look out for various Linux isos for download.

ftp://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/linux/

They also have a section called ubuntu-unofficial-packages -dvd, from where iso images of repositories can be downloaded

ftp://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/linux/ubuntu-unofficial-packages-dvd/

Hope this may be useful
