I am interested in trying this out, as I am going to be doing some teacher
training workshops in remote PNG areas where there is no Internet access.
They will need to view resources that I will be making available on a server
(XS-0.6). It seems that I can't reliably install these codecs from the rpms
alone, without the XO wanting to connect and download stuff. Is there any
way I can set up the mirror server as you describe on the XS, so that I can
carry that to the remote area and have the XOs use that to get the updates?
