Add/Remove programs FC6 -error


FC6 running like samba server, Gnome loaded.
I want to install Konqueror -only Mozilla is installed- and install the KDE GUI too.
I insert the original dvd and run the Add/Remove software icon. Then a error stop and no see option of dvd packets.
The error says: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core"
The FC6 was originally installed from same dvd.
I was trying start a upgrade by boot the same dvd but no option to add/rem software is available.
How to get install Konqueror and KDE using the dvd?

mount dvd and and change baseurl in /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-core.conf to dvd mount point.


This is known issue with FC6 when it is not possible to install packages from installation dvd.
Try to search form for "yum fc6 update" to get the idea...

The thing is:

Most of the packages on the original DVD/CD's are outdated soon after it was released, you can install off the disc but as soon as you check for updates, most of those packages have a newer version and you'll end up downloading them as "updates" anyway. So this is why the discs are not configured as a repo, the strategy is "if you're going to download anyway, just tell yum what to install and it will download the updated package and install the latest", easier to avoid package conflicts this way because of the different repos due to licencing issues like "Extras, Core, Livna, etc.".
If you absolutely need the disc as a repo, here is one link that should help:

I am totally a newbie to computer as well as linux. Below is my questions:

Why i dont have the file etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-core.conf and where to check our repository set up because i cannot set up the livna repository. The terminal return an error which is /var/tmp/rpm-xfer.lB6Z1c: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID a109b1ec
error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/__db.000.

Therefore, i cannot install my graphics card driver.

Your help is greatly appreciated by me and others.

This is a good page for Fedora core 6, click on the "Setup yum" link and it will show you the commands to set up Livna and their GPG-key. I do the key first, then the livna rpm second. I copy and paste the commands in my terminal instead of typing them. There should not be a "fedora-core-conf" in /etc/repos.d. Save this link in you Bookmarks.
