Yum installation problem from DVD !


Friends ,

I want to install package using yum from DVD in RHEL 5 . Hence I just follow the below rules :

1)
[root@server ~]# mount /dev/hdc /cdrom/
mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected, mounting read-only

2)
Edit the yum rhel-debuginfo.repo file like following way :

[root@server yum.repos.d]# pwd
/etc/yum.repos.d
[root@server yum.repos.d]# cat rhel-debuginfo.repo
[rhel-debuginfo]
name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever - $basearch - Debug
baseurl=file:///cdrom/Server/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release
[root@server yum.repos.d]#

Now When I try install a package (like zsh or others) then it shows the following error :

[root@server yum.repos.d]# ls
rhel-debuginfo.repo
[root@server yum.repos.d]# yum install zsh*
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
