HI, I've client server linux machines (fedora code 4.0). I need to setup YUM respository on my linux server, so that every time my client machine comes up, it will check for newer version of application in YUM respository on server, if newer verson is avialable, then It should download the application (example: SIP client) and upgrade it and install it.

Can any one help me in setting up YUM repository @ server and how to use it from client machine.

Dump your installation DVD  to a directory accessible via http
if you have cds, copy the first cd as is, and from the rest of the cds copy the rpms folder and add it to the rpm folder of the first cd.

add this in your /etc/yum.conf on the client or in separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d
[reponame]
name=Fedora Core 4
baseurl=http://servername/path-to-dvd-dump/Fedora/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

start httpd on the server, try yum update from the client.
