Is there a way to change source install path on RHEL?


Hi, my problem is I want to be able to add RHEL applications w/o using the CDs... I've mounted and exported the CD ISOs successfully.. but it still asks me to insert the CD when I want to add something.

Here's the thread about that problem:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=310853

But since it appears that I even if I export the CDs.. it still asks for me to insert the CDs.. is there a way to change the source install path so that it looks in the mounted directory instead of the CD?

The answer is: yes.
I use SuSE mainly, which uses YaST to install rpms. There should be an installation tool in RHEL which has basically the same functions. There should be an option somewhere in the RHEL version of Control Center which allows you to select the source of installation software.

I suggest that you fire up that tool, and click on the Help menu, then search for software installation, alternate sources (whatever it's called in that installation tool).
