Arrow How to installing softwares from Fedora 7 DVD without going online?


I've installed Fedora 7 from a DVD with default desktop configuration. I want to install some more softwares which are present on Fedora 7 DVD.

Problem is that, whenever I run "Add/Remove Software" it goes online, and downloads the softwares I chose from the online repository.

How can I make it install the softwares directly from the DVD instead of internet?

Yeah. The software updater tool searches for the newest software available, and probably the stuff on the net reposities is newer than on your DVD. You could disable your internet connection, disable internet reposities or just read the FAQs, HOWTOs and official Docs about how you specify the DVD reposity to be primary one.

Or, just
rpm -i /media/dvd/path/to/package.rpm
or the same with multiple rpm files.
