Lightbulb A Helper mailing item found

On the Yum Mailing List; I stumbled across the following thread. It is working for me; as this thread directs

[Yum] Readonly Repo - createrepo a folder up - works


I will now customise the steps for Server & Clients, using FTP &/NFS &/HTTP services.

may be by this time you had already solved..if not then try this way.....

what you need to do:


* place all rpm files from DVD to your desired directory

like now i have at /rpms/packages

* install createrepo*.RPM from DVD
* run the following command

#createrepo -v /rpms/packages


now the configuration of /etc/yum.repos.d
create a file with name any thing you want but the extension should be .repo:

i gave myyum.repo

=============myyum.repo==================
[local-installation]
name=yum-loacl
baseurl=file:///rpms/packages
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

=========================================

thats all. now i think you can install any rpm files with yum command

i think you can provide your dvd path here "baseurl=file:///rpms/packages" edit this line"

actually my opinion is you can never do use yum to intall dvd packages. cause when you dump all your packages in you harddirve like /rmp/pacakge then there is a commmand
Code:
createrepo -v /rpm/package
that you need to run. this command will create
some necessary file that related with yum to install by yum. see the following...after use that command createrepo a directory will create name repodata with some files

this is the example path of my own repository that i created

Code:
[root@localhost backup]# pwd
/fc7backup/backup/#all rpm are placed here
[root@localhost backup]# cd repodata/
[root@localhost repodata]# pwd
/fc7backup/backup/repodata
[root@localhost repodata]# ls
filelists.xml.gz  other.xml.gz  primary.xml.gz  repomd.xml

these are the files that is am talking about
so as we know as DVD probably ROM...so creating files may be not possible.

thats what i can explain with my short knowledge.
thanks

I note that the directory structure on the DVD is somewhat different from Fedora.

Try

baseurl=file:///media/RHEL_5%20i386%20DVD/Server

in place of the previous attempt (ie add /Server to the end)
