I'd say so. Anyway, you could probably update your
sources.list with the lines corresponding to the release of
the CD you have "apt-get update" and do something like:
# cp `find /cdrom -file f -name deb` /var/cache/apt/archives/
You might like to copy the files to another place first (say,
/tmp), just to make sure that everything is ok. You might also
want to check the deb's md5sums before even doing anything
like above, to discard the debs that are defective.
I hope that you have a minimal net connection for updating the
list of packages after changing your sources.list file.
Now, if the problem is in a directory area of the CD, hummm...
The best solution I could think of would be to rsync-update
But I guess that this is getting too off-topic for d-powerpc.
Hope this helps, Roger...
