How to install Software package on a Linux System when it do not have Internet - debbundle

Problem - How to install Software package on a Linux System when it do not have Internet ?

I know there are multiple solution to this problem.. Here I am giving one very solution which looks perfect to solve the problem

you can down the script from http://code.google.com/p/debbundle/
What this little script will do..
For example, your system do not have vlc , then you can go to other system which has Internet and then run the script .
Script will produce VLC.i386.OneClickInstall ,

You can can carry this file to anywhere and then install it by just clicking it. Let me repeat, Just by clicking it, neither you terminal , nor you need any extra software to install it.
So enjoy it and give me feedback. ( narendra  AT narendrasisodiya DOT com )

Restrictions.

  • Those who want to create these OneClickInstall software package
    • The current process is only for deb based system. rpm lover can create similar thing very easily. Let me know
      • OneClickInstall package created from Ubuntu should be installed on Ubuntu itself. So you can see there have to many package for the same software - Ex -
        • vlc.ubuntu.i386.OneClickInstall
        • vlc.ubuntu.x86-64.OneClickInstall
        • vlc.debian.i386.OneClickInstall
        • vlc.debian.x86-64.OneClickInstall
      • In Nutshell, these OneClickInstall are just small repository of software. So for every Repo,there will be another package.
      • No OneClickInstall will be created if you already have the package.
      • Creation of these OneClickInstall Package will be done by central website. Script basically resolve dependency and download package and then create a single executable zip file. If you already have that package, then script will not download any package. So the person like me who want to create these oneclick packages , they are advice to use a freshly installed system. You can say it a Build system.
  • Those who want to INSTALL these OneClickInstall software package
    • No restriction
    • just click the .OneClickInstall file and then it click on "Run in Terminal" to install it
