I want to add the original ISO I installed RHEL from as a repository under the Add/Remove Software tool in Gnome.
How do I do this?
To clarify, I know what I need to do (add a repository) - I need the how. I have been unsuccessful in determining the correct string to put in the location field in the Gnome applet. Currently I have
file:///media/rhel/Server/repodata. I have tried pointing directly to the XML file in that directory, the parent directory, its parent, and in variations with more and less slashes in the path.
Update: I found http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/redhat-centos-fedora-linux-setup-repo.html, which has directions for creating the repository manually - but I don't see why this should be needed if the
repomd.xml file is already on the DVD.
