you can download an iso of texlive here. So you should be able to install it without internet acces. I have no experience with R on linux so I cant help you there. – Rick de Groot Jun 18 '12 at 12:18
That software is just 2.5 MB. I think it needs Internet connection for installation. – manish Jun 19 '12 at 1:22
I have downloaded install-tl-unx.tar.g from the above link but getting following error message. Error Message: cannot contact mirror.ctan.org, returning a backbone server! Loading ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb ./install-tl: Could not load TeX Live Database from ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/texlive/tlnet, goodbye. Please select a different mirror! Press Enter to continue. – manish Jun 19 '12 at 1:30
no you should download their "huge" iso from the site so you can burn a dvd and (probably) install without internet access here – Rick de Groot Jun 19 '12 at 19:41
btw no need to burn it on a dvd just need to transport it to your server and mount the iso.The size is 2.3G – Rick de Groot Jun 19 '12 at 20:09
