    Openbox installation from CD?


    I just put Arch Linux on my PC, but I don't have an internet connection for it yet. Is there a way to install openbox from a CD from my other computer?

    Hello

    You can download openbox along with any dependencies from the Arch repos with your internet connected computer, then use pacman to install them to your PC that has no internet connection:

    Code:
    pacman -U /path/to/package/package_name-version.pkg.tar.xz

    More info on using pacman here:

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pacman

    ...and in a terminal:

    Code:
    man pacman

    Note that Arch is a rolling release with updated packages being released every day, so running it on a computer that is not internet connected could prove to be cumbersome for you.
