Lot of time we face the issue of dependency while installing the package from DVD.
Its bit difficult to solve the dependency, In these kind of scenario if we can create a yum repository using Linux Dvd, will solve lot of issues.
In this post, I am going to explain how to create a local yum repository

  1.  Mount the DVDRom.
    mount /dev/cdrom /root/cdrom
  2.  Go in the yum directory :
    cd /etc/yum.repos.d
  3.  open a new file local.repo
    vi local.repo
  4.  Make changes in the file
    [LocalRepo]
    name = local repository
    baseurl = file:///cdrom
    enable=1
    gpgcheck=0
