I’m planning to try out RHEL for one of my Domino project because the customer wants it. So, it’s a good chance to learn a new distribution because my knowledge is limited with Ubuntu, Debian and a little with Slackware.
I tried RHEL 6.1 on VirtualBox and haven’t got the networking to work yet, not having the time to figure it out yet, but what I learnt today is how to add the Red Hat DVD as a repository to install package.
1. Go to /etc/yum.repos.d/
2. Create a new file, named it rhel-dvd.repo
3. Enter the following content
Notes: replace the baseurl with the actual folder where you mount your DVD, it dit it with this command
mount /dev/cdrom /media/RHEL
4. Cleaning the cache
yum clean all
5. Done, you can now install package from the command with yum
