Apt-offline claims to be a utility that allows you to install packages on Debian without internet connection. It can be downloaded from the git repository.
As with many free software, the problem is that it's undocumented and that you have build it yourself. In the git repository I've linked to, there's a information file
# Execute the file using the python interpreter # Assuming python.exe is in your path # To build C:\> python setup.py build # To install C:\> python setup.py install
I've ran build and then install. I could've seen some parse errors spit out by Python. I hope these don't matter. Anyway, I just ended up with a few more folders and few more files without extension (why do some people omit extensions all the time?).
So my question here is just how to build and install the utility properly - given it's possible. (and this question suggests it might be possible)
