Re: Add Remove Software Through CD



open a terminal session from the menu
change to root with the command
 
su -
folowed by the root password
enter the command for your favorite editor on the command line followed by an & to start it in a separate session.  Type the following lines between the asterisks.
*************************************************************************
[fedora-disk]
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY
name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=file:///cdrom
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
*************************************************************************
Use the editors "save as" function to save what was typed to a file named
/etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.disk.repo
 
Put the fedora disk in the drive.  If the automount window comes up on your desktop click on the 
"do nothing" option.
 
In the terminal session enter the command string
 
mkdir  /cdrom;mount  /dev/cdrom  /cdrom
 
All the packages on the CD will then be accessible with yum, yumex, package updater or kyum.
