I am Extremely NEW in Fedora as well in Linux. At beginning i had problem with installing Fedora 16 from DVD. Well it have been solved using nogpt perameter . In speed i forgot to Customize Packages and now i realized how big mistake i did. Let me come to point.

Now i want to install some extra packages from Fedora 16 DVD(Like Yo Frankie game). In other forums i found something about Editing in fedora.repo . (I am only one user (Standard !!) in my Fedora 16) . Problem is that i can't Edit it using Graphical interface.( it says to save as) i tried using Terminal as below.

first i changed Dhruv in to root using
'su root'
then i changed directory using
cd etc/yum.repos.d
then i used this command '
gedit fedora.repo &
but error comes

[1] 2258
[root@localhost yum.repos.d]# 
(gedit:2258): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported

** (gedit:2258): WARNING **: Could not connect to session bus

Re: How to Install Packages from Fedora DVD ?

you need to use su - instead of su (add the space and hyphen. It tells su log into root and create a new login shell, thus creating the root users environment. su without the hyphen keeps the other users environment.)

But, you can install the applications you wish to using the online repo instead of the DVD repo. You would get any later version of the application that has been put in since the DVD was created. Only drawback to using the online repo is that you have to have an internet connection to install the packages.
