Setting up remote CentOS repository

Hi, experts,

I am performing setup for a certain software package, and it requires CentOS repositories. One choice that it gives me is to point to the ISO file, and this works, but it uses too much harddrive space on my VM.

I want to try another option that it allows - giving it a remote http://.. repository. However, I don't see one single http://... repository that would have all dependencies, and the software package allows only one. How do I build one single repository with all rpms, or where can I find one!

Thank you very much. Sincerely,
Mark

The trade off between a local ISO and a repository is the storage on the host/LAN or the bandwidth consumed to get the data.

/etc/yum.repos.d

You can deine your repos and then use yum install packagename
Yum will locate it in the defined repository as well as get the dependencies.
