YUM

It is a command-line package manager / package management tool for a RedHat package manager( RPM ) based Linux Systems, Such as RHEL, CentOS, Fedora, and Oracle Linux.

It stands for “Yellowdog Updater, Modified” and was originally developed by Yellowdog Linux as a way to easily manage packages on their distribution( comes from the process of sharing Linux-based OSes with other users, also known as “distributing” since the kernel and the OS are generally free ).

Let’s try to configured YUM in manually configuration

Step 1. Open a Terminal and Go to the given PATH

# cd /etc/yum.repos.d/

yum

Step 2. Write a code before we must check, ISO file attach to the VM if yes /no

Step 3. your dvd iso can be seen at /dev directory with file name “sr0" to read all the contant we need to mount at any folder.

# mkdir /dvd/

# mount /dev/sr0 /dvd/

Step 4. We create a yum Repository Configuration file with extention as “.repo”

# vi sonam.repo

# It is repo name
[dvd]

# this is baseurl for the rhel disk file
baseurl=file:///dvd/AppStream

# this is to allow installation without any security check and delays
gpgcheck=0

[dvd2]
baseurl=file:///dvd/BaseOS
gpgcheck=0

yum configuration

you can list all the packages with “yum repolist” command

Thank You !!💕
