Greetings, I am having trouble transferring data from the OSdisc Repository 4 disc set to Local Synaptic.
The machine is only and installed PCLinuxOS 2010.07, with dial up service. The Repository set is also 2010.07 and purchased at same time.
In Root, and in Synaptic, the First Disc folders (base and RPMS.main) transferred OK using the Edit tab and then (Add CD-ROM). These also show up in the Repository as Type (rpm-src) and URI (cdrom).
The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Disc were not quite as graceful, mounting may or may not have been successful, as the (progress indicator bar) was about half when this screen was overlaid,
(E: Unable to locate any package files. Perhaps this is not an APT enabled disc.)
Using the Dolphin file manager, the folders can be seen,
Disc 2, RPMS.games and .main
Disc 3, RPMS.KDE, .nonfree, and .special
Disc 4, RPMS.updates and inside of these folders are a bunch of packages.
The first disc also contains a README folder with instructions, but I am having trouble with the terminal-based editor.
I read also that one should update the OS before trying to install Synaptic packages, but with the speed tester, I am at 3807 bytes/sec. This installed 2010.07 version may never be in want of an update anyway, as I am writing from 0.93a, Thank you very much PCLinuxOS.
Is there an easier way to do this, or must I use the instructions with the disc set?
Thank you for reading.
