I installed the F8 LiveCD Gnome Desktop. I had (have) some wireless networking
problem having only been online twice
First time: I ran the package update sequence (about 300MB of rpms)
2nd Time: I immediately downloaded the full Fedora 8 DVD iso image (then verifed)
and soon mounted it to bring it on line. I want to use the Package
Manager (Software update mechanism (Application -> Add/Remove Software))
You have to point the Repository Manager to the directory containing
some repomd.xml file. I've done the add/edit entry sequence. The Repository does
not seem to instate the DVD as a Package source to govern an update process.
I not too trusting of the correct functionality of this SW update mechanism (as well as
a few others in the Gnome Desktop environment) So I need to verify this mechanism
as to what the expressed procedure would be.
In the Add/Remove Software Application what would be the appropiate entry
if the Fedora 8 DVD Distro if inserted as a Repositority Manger entry
Fedora-8-i386-DVD.iso is mount at the mount point /dvd
I s-linked it into the http source directory and it become available httpwise.
Name: Fedora DVD
Also tried the two below:
Error message: Unable to retrieve software information
This could be caused by not having a network connection available.
Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repmond.xml)
for repository fedora. Please verify path and try again.
Is PM corrupted somehow/way?
Or am I errant in my approach?
