I'm trying to install Gnome. However, I don't have a internet connection the to the machine. I have the installation cd and I was wondering if there was a way to install Gnome off of it?

A shot in the dark here, from the terminal.
Code: [ Select ]
sudo apt-get install gdm


I don't know if it will look on the CD or not, or even if apt-get applies to you for that matter.

you need to edit your repositories to exclude the mirrors online and strictly have the cd as the installation source.
