Yum repository on local machine
If you want to install software/packages after installation of linux (CentOS, Fedora etc.). You can create the yum repository to install all the software/packages which is present into the instillation CD. When you have try to install software/packages then some time it shows dependencies problems. To fix this problem I suggest your create the local machine yum repository by using the following steps.
1) Create directory
mkdir -p /root/install/RPMS
2) Copy all the software/packages RPMS from instillation CD/DVD to /root/install/RPMS directory
3) Install createrepo RPM from /root/install/RPMS directory using rpm command
rpm -ivh createrepo-0.4.11-3.el5.rpm
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
[[email protected] ~] createrepo /root/install/RPMS
Once the above command gets completed you will find repodata directory in /root/install/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/install/RPMS enabled=1 gpgcheck=0
Now Try to install any package using ” yum ” command
yum install mysql
yum install php*
