Installing packages in Ubuntu from cdrom (no Internet)

In many cases, the dev class vm’s do not have Internet access (annoying) so you cannot install software vi the Internet.

Mount the ISO in the VM.

On the server run the following command:

sudo mount /dev/sr0 /cdrom

ensure that only the following line is uncommented in /etc/ap[t/sources.list

deb cdrom:[Ubuntu-Server 10.04 LTS _Lucid Lynx_ – Release amd64 (20100427)]/ lucid main restricted

Run sudo apt-get update to update the repository. Then install what you need.
