I have bad internet connection. Starting spacemacs takes a long time because of the "refreshing package archive melpa or gnu or others...". or "installing package: ...".
When i put the computer on plane mode and start emacs this is not a problem since the actions are not executed. Nevertheless, when I forget to do so and the internet connection is bad emacs enters in a sort of "crashing state" trying to refresh or install the packages.
Is there a way to stop packages from automatically refreshing and installing on emacs start up?
Thanks in advanced.
