   it means that you will have to install the rpms on your system. For that, you will need to mount your dvd, cd to the RPMS directory and install using rpm -Uvh <<rpm full file name>>
rpm -Uvh ibaio-devel-0.3.106.rpm
The file name may be different, you can get the full file name by issueing

In Windows operating system a DVD becomes acceptable instantly as soon as it is inserted in a drive. In Linux, a DVD needs to be mounted as a file system. Usually the mounting point for the DVD/CD drive should be defined in the system file "fstab." Note that Section 1 below is the one-time procedure. Once it is done, always proceed directly to Section 2.

Step 3
Type "cd /mnt" and press "Enter."

Step 4
Type "mkdir cdrom" and press 'Enter' to create the directory "cdrom."

Step 5
Type "cd /etc" and press "Enter."

Step 6
Type "cp fstab fstab_original" and press "Enter" to make a copy of the file in case you would need to restore the original configuration.

Step 7
Type "nedit fstab" and press "Enter" to open the file "fstab" for editing.

Step 8
Press "End" followed by "Enter" to get to the end of the file.

Type the following line at the end of the file "fstab."

I also could not find the package libaio-devel-0.3.106 any where, neither on DVD nor any where after installing the red hat. If it is not there then how can I use rpm command on the missing packages.

Please see if you can find what you want on this page.
If not libaio-devel-0.3.106, i suggest you can try with libaio-devel-0.3.107.

Also would suggest to use the --aid option, if you are not already using when you are installing packages.
If all you are missing is libaio-devel rpm, it is attached here for you.

Rename it to .rpm once you've downloaded it.




I resolve the issue; THANKS!
