Indexing Offline CD-ROM Archives

Filed under

Suppose you’ve been good (or sort of good anyway), and you have a huge stack of CD-ROMs (or DVDs) with backups and archives of your old files. Great. But how can you find anything? I solved this problem today by making an index of all the files stored on these disks using a few simple GNU commandline tools.

Meta-packages in a nutshell A ‘meta-package’ is a convenient way to bulk-install groups of applications, their libraries and documentation.
