Looking to install ConTeXt on CentOS 6, without an Internet connection.
The CentOS 6 server does not have Internet access, but can receive files from a computer on the same local area network.
There are a number of related issues, inluding:
- Install ConTeXt manually without using first-setup.bat
- Offline Installation: How do I install a full TeX distribution on an offline computer?
- How to install ConTeXt on CentOS 7?
However, these questions do not address the offline nature specifically for the latest version of ConTeXt available at http://standalone.contextgarden.net/setup/linux-64/.
Given a machine running Windows (or Cygwin on top of Windows, or Linux, even, as the instructions can likely port), how would you download and install an offline version of ConTeXt on a server running CentOS 6 for all users?
The following steps will not work, but serve as an example of what I'd like to accomplish:
- On Windows, open Cygwin.
mkdir $HOME/context cd $HOME/context curl --recursive http://standalone.contextgarden.net/setup/linux-64/ .
- On Windows, open WinSCP (or file transfer program).
- Connect to CentOS server.
- Transfer entire
- Disconnect WinSCP.
- On Windows, open Putty (or other remote shell access program).
- Connect and login to CentOS server.
- Change to
mkdir /opt/context cd /opt/context cp -R /home/user/linux-64 . cd linux-64 ./first-setup.sh
- Optionally, disconnect from the server.
At this point, ConTeXt would be installed on CentOS 6 and all users can create PDFs from
