  • 1. nothing. In fact, the files you download from an on-line installation tool like yum or apt-get are the same files that you would get on a CD or DVD. You can, in fact, get coppies of the repositories on DVD usually, but obviously, software on the DVDs becomes "stale" in that it's not updated.

    2. Sometimes licensing, sometimes, nothing. Again, if you got a copy of the repository on DVD,m you could still use dpkg or rpm to calculate the dependencies and install those as well. I'm not very familiar with yum, but I know that apt also allows you to speficy a DVD as a repository for the same feel as "on-line" installation and updating.

    Does that make sense to you?
