Installing S/W from DVD using YaST (Suse 9.1 Pro)
I'm new to all this Linux stuff. I was assigned to setup a Suse Linux 9.1 Pro box in our support lab, everything went very smooth in regards to setting it up using YaST. However, I don't understand how to install s/w off the DVD's using YaST. With DVD installed I changed the source of the s/w to point to the DVD as the source and tried loading via YaST. What should I see? Should I see directories when I chose the DVD as the source? I just see "DVD:////". Firstly, I do not see the s/w of the DVD included in the package list. If I search for the s/w it does not find it either.
I'm wondering if it has something to do with the src.rpm & nosrc.rpm file formats on the DVD. I don't understand these files. Can someone explain what they mean and what I need to do to get them installed using YaST? I'm completely lost and frustrated, but not ready to give up! Any help would be greatly appreciated. I sure I'll have many more questions down the road. Thanks!
