install applications from DVD ISO


I have downloaded Fedora 11 1ive CD and installed it successfully in my PC, I also have downloaded Fedora-11-i386-DVD.iso into my hard disk.
I want to mount DVD iso and install applications from DVD iso by using
yum install, I do not want to download through fedora mirrors.

I do the following steps,

Code:
$yum install createrepo
$mkdir -p /mnt/iso/{1,2,3}
$mount -o loop /path/to/Fedora-11.DVD.iso /mnt/iso/1
$cd /mnt/iso
$createrep .
after these commands, I can see the system read more than 2000 packages one by one in my pc.
Then i use the following command,
Code:
$yum clean all
vi /etc/yum.repos.d/iso.repo
the contents of iso.repo are as follows,
Code:
[My ISO repository]
name=ISO
baseurl=file:///mnt/iso
enabled=1
After these, I use $yum install xfig
The systems said, "Bad id, byte=2"
yum still uses internet to install the applications?

Could anyone help me?

You have a number of repo definitions. If you want to install from a specific repo such as a DVD, you need to tell yum which of the repos to use. Unfortunately there is no specific command line option for that. Instead you disable the other repos.

first WHY do you want to do that . 90% of the fedora 11 dvd is out dated and the next time you boot, it will be updated .


just use the add and remove software
in /System / Administration on the Gnome desktop

you might want to read the fedora docs .
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/
and have a look through a few " help " pages
