info: 120 items/139 MB of updates...dialup 56K modem...Ubuntu 8.1....Old desktop PC
this will take hours/days at dialup speeds, (my isp will drop me after 4 hours constant) how can i do updates? I have a minimal update list with only important security updates available.
I have been doing updates a few at a time, but it's getting old unchecking ALL those boxes manually, when I only need 4 - 10 to be updated at one time. Any ideas to fix this would be appreciated as I I only have 2 ideas:
Is there a way to start update manager with all the boxes unchecked and let me choose which ones to use?
Thanks in advance.Quote:
Can I download the Ubuntu repositories to a flashdrive at wifi speeds and use that as the default repository to update my system?
