hi i am trying to install packages from fedora 15 dvd using yum
but no success till know
I have created a file.repo
yum update all is showing error that repomd.xml not found.
first i would NOT NOT install anything off the dvd
it is old and the versions on it are INCOMPATIBLE with any programs updated from the fedora reop
basically if you did any of the required security updates you WILL NOT be installing any program from the dvd
Even if you set up the "install-media" yum WILL grab the CURRENT from the fedora repo and fedora-updates
so do not even bother with dvd
it is useless .
the 4.6 gig install dvd for fedora 15 already has 4.5 gig's of updates
99.99% of the dvd is outdated .
