Description Jeremy Katz 2006-04-12 14:55:18 EDT
With the move to pirut from system-config-packages, we have lost the ability to
install packages from CD post-install.  This is a loss for people who don't have
a fast network connection or just want to use CDs.

To resolve this, we need to get more of the CD support in anaconda merged into
yum itself.  This *must* be done for FC6

Yes yes yes!
Comment 13 drago01 2006-06-28 11:16:33 EDT
any progress on this?
will it be ready for test2?
Comment 14 Laurent Rineau 2006-08-23 08:38:54 EDT
Is this bug WONTFIX? I can imagine that, even if a fix arises, it will be too 
late for FC-6.
Comment 15 adam 2006-09-29 09:52:18 EDT
So much work in vain. This system is worthless without it.
Comment 16 Need Real Name 2006-10-15 18:48:47 EDT
This is unbelievable. 

I just installed FC5 in order to work on a project that specifically requires FC5.

The machine in question doesn't have internet access so I've got something less
useful than a brick (at least you can pile up bricks and make a nice garden
wall).  The package manager just plain can't deal with CDs?  Who thought it was
a bright idea to eliminate support for CD installations?

And it's been like this for 6 months now?

I sure won't recommend FC to anybody after this...
Comment 17 Sergio Monteiro Basto 2006-10-25 13:21:22 EDT
if you edit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-core.repo 
and put baseurl=file:///media/disk

pirut works with DVD , don't know what is your problem 

better with an iso 
mount -o loop ~sergio/Zod-dvd-i386/FC-6-i386-DVD.iso /mnt/disk
and put baseurl=file:///mnt/disk 
works beautifully
Comment 18 josip 2006-10-28 04:03:28 EDT
Yum access is broken, despite baseurl=file:///mnt/fc6/ where the DVD image is
loop mounted:

/fedora-core/6/i386/iso/FC-6-i386-DVD.iso on /mnt/fc6 type iso9660
(ro,loop=/dev/loop0)

Yum clean, check-update, and list work fine; but yum install is broken (this
also affects pirut):

# yum install zsh
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
Resolving Dependencies
--> Populating transaction set with selected packages. Please wait.

Tue, 20 Feb 2007 GMT - Jeremy Katz <katzj@redhat.com> - 1.3.0-1
- Fix a translation problem (#228237)
- Start of support for CDs.  To test for now, you need to have yum 3.1.2 
  and add a mediaid= line to your repo.  mediaid is the first line 
  of .discinfo from your media
Comment 21 Sergio Monteiro Basto 2007-07-16 16:32:06 EDT
yum-3.2.0 and yum-3.2.1 seems to work again thanks! 
this bug could be close ? 
Comment 22 Christian Nolte 2007-07-17 03:34:21 EDT
IMHO this bug should not be closed because for the normal end-user it is too
much of a hassle to edit configuration files to get support for
media-repositories. I suggest to add some chooser to pirut so that the user can
select "Install from CD/DVD" or "Install via Internet" or something like that.
Another option is the detection of install-media using HAL. yum and pirut could
then act appropriately.
Comment 23 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-18 15:05:35 EDT
With Fedora 8, things will be set up so that you get a media repo set up
automatically if you've done your installation from a media source.  This will
then make things automatic and work nicely for those who have the media enabled.
 You'll also be able to then disable the repository within pirut if you no
longer have the DVD
