Is it possible to create a linux software package on windows ,store it on a USB stick and then install it on a linux system which is not connected to the internet ?
For example I would like to install the latest version of GCC on my linux mint system which is not connected to the internet after going through the prerequisites (http://gcc.gnu.org/install/prerequisites.html)
I understand that a much better option as i'm using Linux mint 15 (Olivia) which is ubuntu/debian based is to download and install dpkg dev package and GNU make,but i'm afraid that the dependency error might pop up again. I tried doing that yesterday after unzipping the file but i get dependency related errors.
Instead of separately installing the dependencies one after the other without knowing the dependencies is it possible to create a package called GCC with all dependencies "linked",store it on a USB stick,take it home,plug it in and then build it?
As i mentioned earlier i'm using Windows 7 in the office. (see Updating Linux Mint Without Internet Access)
