This downloads site serves two purposes:
1) As a location to get device drivers required to get your already installed and working Xandros Desktop system on the Internet (such as Network Cards and Modems). Many of these drivers are officially available in Xandros Networks, but if you do not have a working Internet connection, you are unable to use Xandros Networks or Xandros Update to get them.
2) As a location to get unofficial test versions of new drivers for other types of devices, or other unofficial patches to the system.
Below is a list of directories that contain packages which can be downloaded
by another computer, and transfered over to your Xandros machine using a
floppy disc, CD, or other removeable media device.
Name Last modified Size DescriptionMost of the packages on this site are easily installed using the dpkg -i command line tool.

As an example, if you have downloaded the xandros-detect-base_0.0.31.1-2_i386.deb package to the /tmp/ directory, the following command can be used to install this package (entered in a root user console):
dpkg -i /tmp/xandros-detect-base_0.0.31.1-2.i386.deb
If you have downloaded multiple packages to a floppy disk (possibly as a method to transfer them from another computer), and wish to install them all at once, the following commands could be used (entered in a root user console):
modprobe floppy    (only
necessary if your floppy is not working)
mount /mnt/fd0      (0 is the number zero)
dpkg -i /mnt/fd0/*
Please send us email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems with these packages.
