Re: yum problem with local repositories

I'm using fedora 7, 64-bit edition. I'm using yum version 3.2.0. I've added a repository for the fedora 7 installation DVD by adding the following files to the file /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo:
[DVD]
name=Fedora $releasever - DVD
baseurl=file:///media/Fedora%207%20x86_64%20DVD
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GP
G-KEY
When I try to install any development package from this repository(e.g. qt-devel), yum fetches the package and asks for confirmation to download it. After I confirm, it echos the following error messages:
Downloading Packages:
Then, I get the following error messages:

Is this a bug in this version of yum?
Maybe yum update yum to get the current yum version first.

Or am I just missing something else?
yum -d 15 {whatever} can give some useful info on what is going wrong. Without that info, my guess is: If you look at the dvd's /repodata, in particular the repomd.xml, and other referred files, you see:
<location xml:base="media://{digits.digits} href=repodata/{a file} />

So it tries to look for a thing called media://digits... to find the actual rpm's.

If this is the case, it wont just be *-devel-*.rpm that are a problem, but all files from the repo.

I resolved this myself sometime ago by mounting the dvd, then running createrepo {yum-utils} one directory higher in the hierarchy.

Let us know what you find.
