While experiencing some massive problems with MYSQL, I completely removed a package called rsyslog, and I can no longer get on the internet to use the package manager to correct my mistake. I also got rid of librdf0 as well (oops). I would like to download the missing packages onto a CD with another computer, and manually reinstall them on my Ubuntu platform. Any ideas where to find these?

(I am assuming this is the package I need. Either way, I still need to get access to the correct packages and install them).

Thank you all very much in advance. Matt

The location will depend on the specific ubuntu version you're running, here are some for various platforms:-

You can install by running

sudo dpkg -i package.deb

Thank you very much, that is exactly what I was looking for. For reference, I actually listed the wrong package. It was the libcouchdb-glib-1.02 package that I ended up needing, in case anyone else ever makes the same mistake. –  javamatt Mar 18 '11 at 8:06
