You want to make a local YUM repository  so that you can update files locally inside LAN etc?

You can follow this :-

Install vsftpd,
copy entire contents of RHEL install dvd to /var/ftp/pub.
start/restart vsftpd.

on the clients-
cd /etc/yum.repos.d
cp rhel-debuginfo.repo local.repo
edit the file to look like this -
[local-rhel]
name = RHEL 5
baseurl=ftp://<IP OF FTP SERVER>/pub/Server


keep the gpg check & gpg key files lines intact.


now you can install packages from this ftp server on ur LAN.

when i try to install thru yum , got message like below:

Damaged or Bad header.info from Red Hat Linux 4ES - i386 - Base
This is probably because of a downed server or an invalid header.info on a repository.
pls  help me.
