How to use the debian installation iso for installing packages using aptitude
This is what I am trying to do.
I have the three dvd iso of debian. I installed debian without
internet connection using the first iso image. Now I want to use these
iso files to download and installing any packages that can be done
through aptitude without using interent. I have internet but I want it
to be second preference.
This is what I managed to do until now:
1) I created a folder name dvd1-mountpoint in my /home folder
2) Next I mounted the iso using the command
mount path/to/iso dvd1-mountpoint/ -o loop
3) Next I created a symbolic link to the mounted folder in the /media folder
ln -s dvd1-mountpoint/ /media/apt1
4) Then i ran the following command
apt-cdrom -d=/media/apt1/ add
I got the following output
root@Innovator:/home/neo1691# apt-cdrom -d=/media/apt1 add
Using CD-ROM mount point /media/cdrom/
Scanning disc for index files..
Found 0 package indexes, 0 source indexes, 0 translation indexes and 0
W: Failed to mount '/dev/sr0' to '/media/cdrom/'
E: Unable to locate any package files, perhaps this is not a Debian
Disc or the wrong architecture?
Any help? I want to say some bandwidth as it is not cheap here, and is very slow
