Enable Install Software Package from Fedora DVD/CD

List the file inside yum repo configuration directory... you can use the ll command as show on example below or replace the ll command with ls -l command.if needed first try "yum install repo"
 1.>>>>>>>>>ll /etc/yum.repos.d/

To make Fedora DVD as installation source... we need to create DVD repo file and edit this file to make the Fedora DVD as the installation source.  To make life little bit easier,  just copy the existing yum configuration file fedora.repo and name the copied file as fedora-dvd.repo
2.>>>>>>>>>cp -pr /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-dvd.repo

3.>>>>>>>>>ll /etc/yum.repos.d/

Execute command below to open and edit the fedora-dvd.repo configuration file using gedit editor... edit the configuration file.. rename the repo as "[fedora-dvd]", and "name=Fedora-dvd" add PATH to the Fedora 11 DVD "baseurl=file:///media/Fedora%2011%20i386%20DVD/" and enable the Fedora DVD repo file "enabled=1 "see... working example below... and then remove unwanted line from the fedora-dvd.repo configuration file.
4.>>>>>>>>>gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-dvd.repo &


name=Fedora-dvd $releasever - $basearch







....Save and exit the editor

**change the baseurl as per the dvd version u use**
5.>>>>>>>>>yum clean all

To start to use Fedora installation DVD as installation source, execute yum command and temporary disable all other repo except Fedora DVD repo using the command that show on example below.  Change the gcc part to the software that you want to install in your box
 6.>>>>>>>>yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=fedora-dvd install gcc*




1) Copy all the RPMS from the DVD to a particular folder lets say /root/os/RPMS

2) Install createrepo RPM from /root/os/RPMS directory using rpm command

3) Now, we will have to create repo of the directory in which we have coied the RPMS. Following is the command to create the repo
.........>createrepo /root/os/RPMS

Once the above command gets completed you will find repodata directory in /root/os/RPMS folder

4) configuing YUM to work with local repository. Create a new file in /etc/yum.repo.d/ or open /etc/yum.conf and paste following
[local repo]
 name = OS $release - MyLocalRepo
baseurl = file:///root/os/RPMS/

Now Try to install any package using YU
