I understand that I am asking a quite stupid question, but:
I have installed Fedora on my hard disk
and have installation DVD with system packages.
I have no configured internet connection because of my modem -
I hope I will configure it later or will by a new hardware modem
(I have a so-called Winmoded)
I have copied all the packages on my hard disk so
I need only to select and install needed packages
from this directory.
The main problem with yum - that I did not understand
how make it find dependencies between needed packages
(maybe it uses an Internet database?) - so I can't
write install command for all the packages I need for KDE.
I read manual pages for yum and have understood only
that I should use the localinstall method.
If anyone can please help me with selecting KDE packages
and all dependent packages from packages in Fedora Packages directory
- the problem is with command syntax as I have said.
yum install @kde-desktop
from Fedora howtos but it does not work -
maybe it requires additional configuration files or
Also I remember that system installer asked for package groups
and resolved dependencies when I installed the system from DVD,
but I do not wish to reinstall the whole
system for only adding one package group Maybe there is a way of
running this installer on installed system in upgrade mode? -
The command name for this installer is needed.
So please help me with the system installer or yum syntax
for selecting KDE packages.
