CentOS 5 : How to use YUM without internet connection

Hello Experts,

I want to do a cluster CentOS on my Vmware Workstation but I don't have internet access for my virtual machines.


I have modifed the etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Bas to make sure that the YUM command install the necessary packages  directly from the CentOS dvd.

baseurl parameter
Unfortunately , after this modification I have the error bellow when I try to type the command YUM

yum command error

You can create a local Yum Repository by copying all the content of DVD to your local system drive. For more information and steps to create local Yum repository on your system please check URL: http://eitwebguru.com/how-to-create-local-yum-repository/

You don't have internet access? In case you're behind a proxy, you can fix that by editing /etc/yum.conf and adding proxy server and credentials, like this:

proxy=http://pro.xy.com:port
proxy_username=your proxy username
proxy_password=your proxy password

In baseurl, you have to give path of directory that has the xml file.  Look for repomd.xml.  Give path of directory that contains this file.

You can also put the files you want to install in  
/var/cache/yum/[$basearch]/[$releasever]/[reponame]/
and run
# yum -C install (or groupinstall) [package or group names to install]

The -C (note upper-case) makes it operate only from cache and not try to go online to update its database files.

You might want to set keepcache=1 in  /etc/yum.conf so it doesn't delete the packages as soon as it's done installing them, too.
