How to install from the repo on the DVD
- [Bug 888307]--Satellit 12:35, 18 December 2012 (EST)
--- Comment #1 from Andre Robatino <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- I've found (testing on F17) that if I create a local.repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d/ with the contents: [local] name=Local baseurl=file:///dev/sr0/ enabled=0 gpgcheck=0 I can then use the DVD as a local repo (disabling all other repos to avoid downloading updated packages) with a command such as yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=local install XXXXX

- F19 Buglist: http://qa.fedoraproject.org/blockerbugs/milestone/19/alpha/buglist
"... So I installed fedora-release from the F19 repo and did a yum distro-sync today. Then I installed a new kernel build. Then I rebooted. Then nothing would boot at all. It turns out this is because the release name of Fedora 19 is: Schrödinger's Cat with a single quote used as an apostrophe. That release name gets written into the grub entry for a kernel when you're installing it. ...The single quote in the release name terminates the quotes early, and leaves the rest of the stuff that's meant to be inside the single quotes as garbage lying around the config file. ..."
