Description Phil Schaffner 2004-11-12 20:24:58 UTC
Description of problem:
Consider adding yum metadata (createrepo, and perhaps yum-arch - for
FC2 updates) to the DVD iso.  The image (or for that matter the
physical media) could then be mounted  as a local yum [os] repo,
accessed as a file:/ URL.  Would save user's disk space and
everybody's network bandwidth.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC4 DVD iso image

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount DVD
2. Specify as yum [os] repo
3. yum install somepackage
Actual results:
Fails due to lack of metadata.

Expected results:
Could run yum install of new packages from local image.

Not likely to happen anytime soon, but I'll keep it on the TODO list.

Comment 3 Terrel Shumway 2005-02-25 19:32:06 UTC
mount the image
create a new directory for the local repo: 
  mkdir myrepo
  cd myrepo
create symlinks to all of the rpms
  find /media/dvd -name '*.rpm' >allrpms
  cat allrpms |(for x in read; do ln -s $x $(basename $x);done) 
create the repodata
  createrepo .

I'd like to add that making the repodata comps enabled would be a nice bonus.

Comment 6 Matthias Saou 2006-02-16 13:16:34 UTC
Update : in FC5 test releases, "repodata" is present on the DVDs AFAICS...

Comment 7 Phil Schaffner 2006-02-19 02:33:25 UTC
So - haven't been following closely of late.  Looks like resolution RAWHIDE
should get this one off the books.
