F13 DVD iso as a local repo for virtualbox install


Hi,

I have a virtualbox installation of Fedora 13 i386 at work. It is not connected to the internet at all and won't be. I want to use the DVD iso as a repo for the installation. It seemed to have been possible in past versions of Fedora, but I just can't find any thing specific to Fedora 13. For example, found a tutorial based on Fedora 5, followed it, but it didn't work.

Thank you guys.

If you want to use the dvd iso as a repo after installation try these steps:

Code:
mkdir /mnt/iso
mount -o loop,ro <path_to_iso> /mnt/iso

mv /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo{,.orig}
cat <<'EOF'> /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
[fedora]
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=file:///mnt/iso/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
EOF
cheers

and just remember that that dvd is already very out of date ( 3+ gig's of updates to it )
and that a new remix from unity might help
