Re: Add/Remove software error



Patrick wrote a rather confusing e-mail with both top and bottom posting
depending on who was quoting whom. And he didn't trim irrelevant text...

He quoted Dan saying:

and asked:

This is true. But it will want to load metadata for the updates-repo
from the Internet before it will install from the local repo.

On a machine without Internet access, this could be a problem...
