Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I think you can tell mintupdate to only download the updates, then you can copy them onto disc and install them. Where they are downloaded to, however, I have no idea.
Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
When a problem is solved, please add [SOLVED] to your thread title.

OK
ill check it out, but this would be a handy option to be able to carry a service pack, so to speak, and install later or even after a fresh install of a given distro - abit like windows service pack 2 and 3 that you can dl and install at any given time. would it be to much to ask to look into this feature for some one in the community to compile?
