    Install software from fedora 11 dvd

    Install Softwares from Fedora 11 DVD
    To install and update software packages on Fedora system we do need connection to the internet and some of us do not have the luxury of fasters internet connection. So, here is a step by step instruction for installing softwares from fedora 11 dvd.
    Install from Fedora 11 DVD
    1) Open Fedora 11 x terminal, (Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal)
    2) Become the root user and execute the su command as shown below
    Code:
    [fedora11@localhost ~]$  su -
    Password:
    [root@localhost ~]#
    3) List the file inside yum repo config directory. You can use ll command or ls -l command, both will display the same result.
    [root@localhost ~]# ll /etc/yum.repos.d/
    total 16
    -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1785 2009-05-11 18:45 fedora-rawhide.repo
    -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1144 2009-05-11 18:45 fedora.repo
    -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1105 2009-05-11 18:45 fedora-updates.repo
    -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1163 2009-05-11 18:45 fedora-updates-testing.repo
    [root@localhost ~]#
    4) Just copy the existing yum configuration file fedora.repo and name the copied file as fedora-dvd.repo or as you wish, see the command below
    [root@localhost ~]# cp -pr /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-dvd.repo
    [root@localhost ~]#

    -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1785 2009-05-11 18:45 fedora-rawhide.repo
    -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1144 2009-05-11 18:45 fedora.repo
    -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1105 2009-05-11 18:45 fedora-updates.repo
    -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 1163 2009-05-11 18:45 fedora-updates-testing.repo
    [root@localhost ~]#
    6) Edit the fedora-dvd.repo file as shown below.

    [root@localhost ~]# gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-dvd.repo &
    [1] 7504
    [root@localhost ~]#

    # Use this repo if you want to install/add package from Fedora 11 installation DVD
    # that usually automount when you insert the installation DVD.
    # This repo only useful when you don't have internet connection to install

    # Then execute yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=fedora-dvd [command]
    # Command example => yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=fedora-dvd install gcc*

    [fedora-dvd]
    name=Fedora-dvd $releasever - $basearch
    failovermethod=priority
    baseurl=file:///media/Fedora%2011%20i386%20DVD/
    enabled=1
    metadata_expire=7d
    gpgcheck=1
