In this artical i am going to setup YUM ( Yellowdog Update Modified) server on a Windows based FTP server.Here we go;
First of all copy Full DVD of your linux distribution on a windows ftp server.
In my case i have copied all the contented of Fedora core-11dvd on my windows ftp server (192.168.5.52\fedora11)
The exact link location is ftp://192.168.5.52/fedora11
Now on Linux system follow the following steps
1. Move all the repo file to a backup location in my case /backup/yum.repod
[email@example.com tmp ]# mv /etc/yum.repod/* /backup/yum.repod/[firstname.lastname@example.org tmp ]# cp /backup/yum.repod/fedora.repo /etc/yum.repod/satishmalanch.repo
Now edit this file with vim edtior:
email@example.com tmp ]# vim /etc/yum.repod/satishmalanch.repo
Edit the file as shown in above figure.
Now run following command:
[firstname.lastname@example.org tmp ]# yum clean all
Now you have configured the yum repositry on a windows based ftp server on network.
You can now install the packages without any dependancy.
