    Default Making Updates without Internet Connection ?

    Hello OpenSuse Community !

    My name is Albert Kam ..
    I'm still using openSUSE 10.2, although the 11 is out To be honest most of my colleagues are still using openSUSE 9.2 at my office.

    Anyway, here's the problem. In my office, we have quite limited internet connection. But i want all of the 10.2 got the latest updates, perhaps in form of DVD or CD. 1 person updates from the repo online, and all users can update from a removable media.

    Is this possible .. and how to achieve this ?
    Are these still related to my issue or already obselete ?
    SDB:How To Create a Patch CD - openSUSE
    SDB:Creating A Customized Package Selection - openSUSE

    If i'm not mistaken, there's a YAST feature called Addon Creator or something .. I tried searching in my YAST but found none.

    Help !

    Regards,
    Albert Kam
