Installing Linux Wireless OR Ndiswrapper without Internet connection
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 6, 2014
Let me just preface this by saying I'm generally a cool-headed, patient guy, and I don't bother people about my problems if I know I can probably find the answer to them myself. With that said, I've been using Ubuntu for about 6 months, and this is exactly what I do 100% of the time and I haven't had such a problem until today/several days ago when my laptop's wireless adapter died.
I'm aware this/general wireless issues are often quite the problem for ubuntu users, but looking for answers has made it at least 10 times as frustrating. Knowing I would have to deal with enraging grapplings, I bought a Belkin USB wifi adapter from wal-mart, and initially tried to install/run the accompanying software using wine. This, obviously, was entirely useless. Silly me. So I took to the googles looking for any possible substitute drivers. What I found was Ndiswrapper, in other user's words, is for "trying to force-fit the square Windows driver into the round Linux hole". Sounds decent e
[SOLVED] Installing wine to a VMware without internet connection
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 18, 2011
At the moment I am installing a VMware Ubuntu machine. This machine has no internet connection.
I want to install wine, so I can install software that only runs under Windows.
I cannot find the packages to install wine under the VMware machine that will download to windows.
I have no clue on how to handle the source of wine, so I can download the source of wine, copy that to the VMware machine and use 'make' there.
Any links or ideas on how to proceed?
Ok, tried to compile source of wine on the VMware machine. It gave an error, since it was missing package flex. Compiling flex from source gave an error, since it was missing package m4. Trying to compile m4 gave an error, see make_install.log.
These were my steps:
Went to /usr/local/bin/ and unpacked m4 there.
Went into the m4 directory (m4-1.4.14).
I can't get the configure log uploaded as an attachment, since it is too big. Splitting it into smaller sizes doesn't help either ,
Install Fedora Core 4 Extras or Updates without Internet Connection.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 8, 2005
I am pretty new to Linux. I installed Fedora Core 3 and upgraded recently to Fedora Core 4 on an Old PC that doesn't have internet capabilities. I have a newer PC which has internet capabilites which gave me the ability to create the Fedora Core 3 & 4 CD's to install on the Old PC.
The old PC dual boots Windows 98 and Fedora Core 4 and so far I don't have any problems with the current setup.
I would like to be able to install the new Screen Saver rpms and XMM MP3 player from the Fedora Extras. All the documentation I have read says you need to use YUM or Update2 with an internet connection to download and install the rpm packages for the applications you want to use. Same with the Updates.
The way I was thinking is that I could download the RPM files from the Fedora Extras / Updates and burn the files to CDs from the New PC that has Internet access. Then install the new files from CD's to the Old PC. The only problem I don't know how to install new files from
Installing Network Manager 6.10 without internet connection
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 28, 2009
Complete newbie when it comes to Linux. Tried installing 8.04 on an old desktop PC, it ran nicely but Network Manager could not connect to wireless internet. I tried installing WICD, which connected, but after two minutes of connection the whole system froze up.
I read somewhere that 6.10 worked ok with my wireless USB card (Linksys WUSB11 ver 2.6). So I have now installed 6.10... but I have found out that Network Manager isn't installed as default!
I know the basic way of getting it installed is to just download it using sudo apt-get install. But I don't have any way of connecting the machine to an internet connection (it's a bit of a botch job PC without an ethernet port).
All I have for internet access is my MacBook (running OSX)
So I need a way to be able to download NetworkManager to the mac, stick it on a thumb drive, then move it across to the Ubuntu machine.
Can anyone give me simple, newbie friendly instructions... please!!!!
Installing packages to a Linux Server without internet connection
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I have a production server (in my case Suse Linux) that is not connected to the outside internet. I can copy files to it via SCP and I have root rights, but I would not be able to connect to remote repos.
I would like to install several packages on this production server. Is there a way to run an installation on a parallel server (connected to the internet), keep all downloaded installation source files, copy them to the prod server and run there the installation of the new packages with local packages?

Installing network manager without internet connection!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 17, 2011
I've read a lot on the internet about various ways of doing this but i've been unsuccessful each time.
Basically what i've done is accidently un-installed network-manager because I was having trouble staying connected on my WPA network.
The easiest way of reinstalling it I know of is using the CD but I don't have a CD ROM drive and the pen drive I used to install it I no longer have.
I tried using a program called Keryx but you need python installed and from some reason this doesn't come with ubuntu 10.10. I've also downloaded the .deb packages but I still need to download 200kb which is a killer. I've also downloaded it from here too http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sourc...rkManager/0.8/
but the install file makes no sense to me as i'm not a massive linux user.
If someone could please help me find a way of installing network-manager again I would really appreciate it.
Oh I would be able to connect to the internet if I could get ubuntu to select my ethernet as my defa
