Installing rest of Fedora Core - 4 packages


Hello all,
I have done a minimal FC-4 installation on my PC. There is no graphics or internet. Now I need to install the rest of packages from either a CDROM or from hard disk. How can I do that?
TIA.

regards
libregeek

The fastest way is to reinstall FC4 and install what you need.

Otherwise, you will be installing rpms from the CDs and working out the dependencies manually, which is typically not a trivial task for newcomers.

If you had network support, then yum would make installing packages trivial.

I have successfully re-installed the rest of the packages. After that I found a solution for this. I havn't checked it so I am not sure how it will be successful.
Copy all the RPMS to a central location in your apache's documentroot. Run createrepo to create yum xml headers. start the apache server and use yum locally. There is no need of internet connection for this type of installation. If somebody could test it, then this can be the easiest method to install the rest of packages in the command mode.

Yes, you can create a local repository from the installation CDs and use yum with it.

You will find it's easier to use vsftpd instead of httpd (ftp vs http) for serving your local repo. I walked someone through this process once and touched on most of the issues that can come up in this link: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=354958
