LINUX – Using Local YUM REPO on RedHat 7 using DVD ISO

Often I need to install packages that are on the RHEL install DVD and being able to use the install ISO without having a Red Hat subscription or license is extremely useful.

  • Mount the DVD to cdrom folder
mkdir /cdrom
 mount /dev/cdrom /cdrom
  • Create yum local repo file:
cd /etc/yum.repos.d
 vi local.repo

and past this content:

 name=Local Repository

save the file and clean yum repository cache:

yum clean all

Job done.
