Hi, I am trying to do an offline install of packstack (through a DVD instead). I install all rpms required by packstack from the DVD during operating system installation and then when the system boots I run "packstack --allinone".

But packstack still tries to run "yum install *" and fails although I the rpms it tries to fetch are already installed.

I would be great if someone can suggest how I can tell packstack/yum that these packages are already installed.

PS: I tried running yum update first (with internet connectivity) and then I run packstack (no internet) but it still does the same.

My memory of install from DVD is old but I remember there was a way to specify the yum sources that are not online (like http:// or ftp://) but local, like dvd:/// or /media/$MYFOLDERWITHALLRPMs. Check yum documentation as that may shed some more light.

Thanks for the response. Yes that's exactly what I am doing right now i.e., I disable all repos except one and modify that one enabled repo to point to my local repodata folder using file:/// but I thought maybe there is someway for packstack to avoid using yum install.
