FC5 yum-local + internet repo enable ?

Hello ,

I am facing problems insatlling vlc media player . I have downloaded the tar file of size 77 MB and extracted the fedora folder from it .

When i run "yum localinstall <rpm file name for vlc>" , it resolves most of the dependencies , but needs about 8-10 more packages/files . Is there a way i can use these local files i have AND the internet together to get packages to satisfy the required dependencies ?

The files in /etc/yum.repo.d are not changed .

Include the names of rpm packages that are locally available in the command alongwith vlc
yum -y localinstall vlc---.rpm pkg1.rpm pkg2.rpm ...

yum will locally install those included and the rest it will try & download from internet repos

put the packages in the same dir, else provide path
