I would like to prepare a current version of ConTeXt on a CD-ROM, so that it can be installed on Debian, in some emergency situation, i.e. when Internet access is unavailable. The typical installation method I have seen is through the Internet only. Debian provides packages, but these are very outdated. Is there a way to download the entire ConTeXt repository to a CD-ROM for later installation?
first-setup.sh does a
rsync to get the latest ConTeXt version:
rsync -rlptv rsync://contextgarden.net/minimals/setup/$platform/bin .
you can write a new version to your DVD and then modify the install script to use the DVD as repository, eg:
rsync -rlptv rsync:///cdrom/minimals/setup/$platform/bin .
