Hello, I'm new with Fedora. I use Fedora 9 Sulphur (x86_x64). I want to install new packages from my dvd, the same dvd I used to install Fedora 9.

I put the dvd on my dvd player and Fedora mounts it.

But I have a problem, when I click on a package from de window installer, the installer shows me a window with this message:

Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: updates. Please verify its path and try again

I try to do the same using yum via console, but I have the same problem.

I don't understand. Fedora mounts the dvd, but I suppose the installer doesn't have associated from where it have to install packages.

So, I install rpm packages via console going into .../Packages, but I want to use yum or the installer.

Can someone help me?
