    hi
    new to linux [xubuntu 7.10]
    new to how to forge forum
    great site from what I have seen so far.

    I was particularly interested in the how to about putting repositories on DVD, as I have my Xubuntu loaded on a machine that rarely sees the internet.
    I have a couple of questions.

    1] I am wondering if there is a way to download these repositories thru a WinXP machine [Currently, it is the one connected to the internet most of the time.]

    2]
    Can anyone tell me how to completely uninstall [or maybe there is a how to available] wine and the programs I am using wine for. I have screwed it up and would like to start fresh, but am a little unsure what files [programs I am using wine for] I can safely delete.

    thank you

    (1) use AptonCD http://aptoncd.sourceforge.net/ to make repositories on the CD and for downloading the stuff.... hmmm... no clue... if you have enough diskspace on your disk you can make a mirror and by syncing you'll download it all (for ubuntu check here: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/mirror/1 )

    (2) removing wine

    (2a) removing wine first:
    Code:
    apt-get purge wine
    
    (2b) removing the wine folder in your home
    Code:
    cd /home/user
    rm -Rf .wine
    
    (2c) manually delete entries made to the menu

    that's how I would do it...

    sjau thanks for response

    I will try the wine deletion [#2]

    as for an answer to my 1st question:
    AptonCD looks good, but, as I stated I want to download these repositories thru a WinXP machine, as it is the one mostly connected to the internet.

    It will be great once I get both machines on linux, but until then I need to get my downloads thru a windows machine.
