using yum to update a fc5 dvd distro

I have made my own distro dvd using the fc5 dvd image and have been able to make a working dvd image.

I am now trying to figure out how to use yum to update that distro. It has sucessfully updated the fc5 system that i use to make the distro dvd but the rpms in the distro are not changed.

I don't know if this is the way to update the distro, or maybe i should just rsync a update directory on one of the mirrored sites

I'm assuming you want to update installed packages. To do that, run as root:

yum -y update

Tried that but what i want to do is update the RPMS so i don't have to run yum on the system i am loading with it.
They will not have any network connect to it.

use this script I wrote. (save to a directory of your choice preferrably /home/"yourusernamehere"
  1. First make sure that these two files are in the same directory. (I used my home directory)
  2. Then execute the script.
Then have your root password ready.
It will get the files needed and install your repo
p.s. make sure you have an internet connection.
