How to configure Fedora 8 as Yum Server

Well. So many people asked me how to configure yum server under Fedora 8. When ever we want to install any packages in our system with using yum command, by default it will install from Internet. If that packages in our Fedora 8 DVD. We don't need to download that packages from internet. we install that packages with our DVD only. Ok, but we need to make some changes on some files... Login as root, and give this commands from of your terminal.

1. [root@localhost ~]# cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
2. [root@localhost yum.repos.d]# rm -rvf * (hay... you need to must n go to the /etc/yum.repos.d directory, other wise you will lose your data, be careful about this.)
3. Download the below link
4. Extract the files under the /etc/yum.repos.d location like this. (Assume if you download the above file under your Desktop)
5. [root@localhost opt]# cd /root/Desktop/
6. [root@localhost Desktop]# tar -xvf repos.tar.gz -C /etc/yum.repos.d/
7. Put your Fedora Dvd in your dvd drive, and mount the dvd under the /mnt
8. [root@localhost Desktop]# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
9. [root@localhost Desktop]# yum list

That's it. You configured your yum server in your local system. So.. when ever your system asks any packages, automatically it download that packages from your cdrom. All yum commands are work like this.

Again if you want to install packages from internet with yum, we need to remove the files under /etc/yum.repos.d/
1. [root@localhost ~]# cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
2. [root@localhost yum.repos.d]# rm -rvf * (hay... you need to must n go to the /etc/yum.repos.d directory, other wise you will lose your data, be careful about this.)
3. [root@localhost ~]# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt (mount the cdrom under /mnt)
4. [root@localhost ~]# cd /mnt/Packages/
5. [root@localhost Packages]# rpm -ivh fedora-release-8-3.noarch.rpm --force (install the package forcely)

That's it, again you will download your packages from internet, so... feel Linuxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

Many people were asked me.... "Is it possible to run Linux and windows at a time on the same system?". My answer is yes. This is called virtualization. Yeah... we have so many virtualization softwares. One of the famous virtualization software is VMWARE. But you need to buy that software. VirtualBox comes free of cost and performance also good. So... why don't we try that. I'm giving that website link below. According to your operating system you need to download that package. If you want to source code, it also available there.

Fedora download links

This is for my students... So many pupils are asked me "how to download fedora". For a normal pc your architecture is i386. A lot of people are using these personal computers. So.. im giving that download links below. If you want to download it... you need to follow some instructions. What they are

1. You should download this in NTFS file system drives. Because your Fat doesn't support large files more that 1 GB. But NTFS supports that, so.....

2. This is a very large file. Nearly 3.2 GB. So. you need to download this file with some download managers support. So.. choose the best download manager. In my view the best download manager is Flashget.

3. It is a very large file. It will take 2 to 10 days depending on your internet speed. so.. be patience..

The download links are...

Download in that any one link. Right click on that link, choose copy link location after that paste in download manger. That's it. One of the good linux os you will get free of cost. feel linuxxxxxxxxx.
