Exclamation help installing extra software from the fedora core 8 install dvd.


I just (the install finished about 30 seconds ago) installed FC8 on my computer. I did the absolutely no frills instal and want to know how to get the extra applications from the DVD. I currently have no network connection because when I boot windows I use a linksys wireless device, but that is a question for another thread.

hi
I also faced the same problem.
do one thing open add remove programs which will give a error as u don't have internet connection.
open repository manager then add a new repo
give repo path file:///media/cdrom/ (what ever or writer)
path must be given by file:///
try this
