yum without net connection


Hello,

i am setting up the wifi connection for my centos 5.9 box as per the instruction below.

Install Howto

Download the latest elrepo-release rpm from

http://elrepo.org/linux/elrepo/el5/i386/RPMS/

Install elrepo-release rpm:

# rpm -Uvh elrepo-release*rpm

Install iwl3945-firmware rpm package:

# yum install iwl3945-firmware
now it says "# yum install iwl3945-firmware", but i don't have net connection yet. so how to complete this step?

The package "iwl3945-firmware-15.32.2.9-4.el5.noarch.rpm" has no dependencies.

Can be downloaded
http://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux...el5.noarch.rpm
.. and installed with # rpm -Uvh iwl3945-firmware-15.32.2.9-4.el5.noarch.rpm

# 3 .

No reason to add the elrepo : Not usable with no internet.

This will do : # rpm -Uvh iwl3945-firmware-15.32.2.9-4.el5.noarch.rpm
