Fedora core 5 rpm installation problem


i am having a stange problem i have installed fedora core 5 and i have mounted the dvd on the os but when i try to install a software from the add/remove software or the package manager it goes to the internet to download all the dependencies and sometimes it even downloads the software. When i double click the rpm from the Fedora\rpm folder it also does the same thing but this way it only downloads the dependencies.

Any help will be appreciated

You must configure your reposity files so that the DVD set is included as a local reposity, I think..I'm not 100% certain but I recall the reposity files were in /etc/ in a "repo" or "repo.d" or "reposities" or something..check them out

there are a lot of files by the name of repo so i am giving the full list here so u can find the exact one

Code:
/var/cache/yum/core/repomd.xml
/var/cache/yum/extras/repomd.xml
/var/cache/yum/updates/repomd.xml
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/repos.py
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/repos.pyo
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/repos.pyc
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/repomd
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/repomd/repoMDObject.py
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/repomd/repoMDObject.pyo
/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/repomd/repoMDObject.pyc
/usr/share/mime/multipart/report.xml
/media/disk/repodata

Take a look here for more detail on using removable media as yum sources.
