I'm deployed to Afghanistan with the Army and I have a friend who's netbook had his hard drive take a dump on him. He ordered a new hard drive and I was able to download and burn a copy of Ubuntu to disk from work. However the default install doesn't support most of the media that he wants to watch (AVI files, probably some DIVX video) without installing extra packages.
We don't have internet in the tent and really don't have a vaiable option for downloading additional packages through the package manager anywhere here.
The computer is a small HP netbook. All my friend wants is to watch ripped movies.
Does anyone know of a good way to do either of the following:
- Download packages seperately and install them via CD
- A distro that is going to come preloaded with all of the packages and needed to watch just about any type of video file you can think of?
Thanks in advance, Andy
