Adding Oracle Linux 6.4 Installation DVD as a yum repository

First, make sure the install DVD is mounted properly and take note of the mount point.  For the purpose of this post, the DVD is mounted at /mnt.

Next, create a repository file at the yum repository directory.

# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/dvd.repo

Insert the following lines inside the file, and save.

[ol6-dvd]
name=Oracle Linux 6.4 Installation DVD $basearch
baseurl=file:///mnt/Server/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///mnt/RPM-GPG-KEY

[ol6-dvd-UEK]
name=Oracle Linux 6.4 Installation DVD $basearch - UEK
baseurl=file:///mnt/UEK2/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///mnt/RPM-GPG-KEY

Now, the yum command will use the DVD as a repository.  Don’t forget to disable other repositories in the folder if you do not want newer packages to be installed.
