2. Disable all other repos
3. Open Add/Remove Software and select a package from the local repo for installation

Comment 4 Hedayat Vatankhah 2009-08-20 06:01:16 EDT
It still requires network connection (though a bit differently). When there is no network connection, I get this error:
Errors were encountered while downloading packages.
b43-fwcutter-011-4.fc11.x86_64: Caching enabled but no local cache of /var/cache/yum/fedora-local/packages/b43-fwcutter-011-4.fc11.x86_64.rpm from fedora-local

(It should not expect the package to be downloaded to cache for local files).

Can you post the repo file for fedora-local please.

Comment 7 Richard Hughes 2009-08-20 07:25:16 EDT
What's the output of:

cd /opt
find * | grep b43-fwcutter

Comment 8 Hedayat Vatankhah 2009-08-20 07:28:31 EDT
(It's a regular Fedora DVD x86_64 iso mounted there)
This is the output:

[root@localhost opt]# find * | grep b43-fwcutter
[root@localhost opt]#
Comment 9 Hedayat Vatankhah 2009-08-20 07:32:37 EDT
Also notice that I can install this package from this repository when there is a network connection available!

Comment 10 Richard Hughes 2009-11-17 08:00:11 EST
Is fixed for me in F12.
