Cant install smartmontools on linux.
Now when I do a apt-get install smartmontools it fails. This computer has no access to the internet so, getting access is impossible. Is there a way to copy the binaries dependicies to the hard drive so it will run on this linux box? Don't want to use a live CD for my test.  I want to run smartmontools while my OS is running.

regards

Pat

It is quite clear what you do not want to do. The issue is that since your system does not have access to the internet, you have to bring the package and its dependencies on a CD.  apt-get suggests you are using a debian/ubuntu Linux distribution.


You need to first determine and get all the dependencies.
If the smartmontools are on the liveCD you can install it from the CD.

You would need to use the --no-download option to apt-get and point to the repository of packages.

you could also add the CDROM as a possible source to /etc/apt/sources.list

apt-get add CDROM

apt-cdrom add might be what you need to run
