Exclamation add/remove packages from Fedora 5


i have installed FC5 64 on my PC but when i click on Add/Remove applications icon from the menu the program stops with an error message. this happens even i have my FC5 DVD in the drive

i heard the problem wont exist if there is internet connection "which i dont have for my PC"

can anybody suggest a solution to update packages via the DVD?

thanks in advance

thanks everyone for the info



Hey guys,
I tried editing the yum configuration few times and installer didn't work as expected.
but finally i got it correct! now i thought of sharing this with u
Its pretty easy
i had my DVD with 64-bit Fedora core5
1.insert the DVD to Drive
2. cd /etc/yum/yum.repo.d/
3.change all the enable=1 to 0's in those config files (except for the [core] section of the fedora-core.repo file)
4. comment the internet urls(baseurl=http://...something) by adding # to the begining of each line of the [core] section
5. add the new line"baseurl=file:///media/disk" (here my DVD is mounted to /media/disk )
to the core section
6. now u can add/remove packages )
