I'm quite new to Linux and I installed FC5 from CDs. Now I know taht during installation, all the available packages are not shown or allowed to be instllaed, eg. thunderbird, k3b etc though I know there is a almost unending and exhaustive list of packages available in Fedora 5 Installer CDs. I hve seen that list at the FC webpage too.
Now how can I install from this installation cds all the other packages that are available and also how can I get a list of these packages without being ONLINE? Please note that I do not have an always on, unlimited internet conectio so I would prefer to do it all Offline.
I tried to use the ADD/REMOVE Software Feature but unfortunatelly it does not work offline.
I installed Thunderbird and K3B from the CDs but I found the process to be quite cumbersome. I had to insert each and every CD in my ROM Drive and then I had to search for the package. In case of K3b, I found the corresponding RPM in Disk4 but when I tried to instal it it simply gave me an error massege that one dependency cdrdao-1.2.1-1
is mising. So I had to Go to Fedora website to check whethere it is available in the core CDs. When I found that it is available in the CORE CDs then I started to searchmy installation CDs again and this time I found it in 3rd CD. I do not think this to be a correct way of doing this thing. There must be a proper way out.
I tried every way as a ROOT
and I peronally prefer GUI over CLI.
So I would be grateful if you could help, me out here. I need your help desparately.
