[Slackbuilds-users] Is there a way...

  Hi gang,

  I tried to get all the dependencies installed on a friends 13.37 system in
  preperation of installing HandBrake.

  The reason I downloaded all of them and burned them onto a cd-rw and took it to
  him is he has only dial-up and is unfortunately constrained to being able to use
  it only from ~midnight through ~6AM. Naturally he has other things he'd also like
  to do so I do a lot of downloading for him.

  The problem: We got everything installed and when we go to build HandBrake, it
  wants to download and install *all* the dependencies on its list - whether they're
  already installed on the system or not!

  This is a PITA for dial-up users. I looked at the Slackbuild for HandBrake, but
  didn't see anything in it that's making it do the downloading, and unfortunately
  am not a programmer so can't figure out where else this set of instructions is
  other than the HandBrake tarball itself somewhere.

  Does anyone know what I can possibly do to install HandBrake on my bud's system
  without having to go through the whole download and install thing?

  Thanks for all and any help with this one.

the 1860s. So why should I be ashamed of white guys? Why is "Hispanic Pride" or
"Black Pride" a good thing, while "White Pride" conjures shaven heads and white
