Creating a Local Directory Repository to act like a local media for CentOS 6

Just say you wants a local Directory Repository to act like a local media. This happens when you wish to do yum local install from a directory of RPMs only instead of pulling directly from Internet repository.

1. At /etc/yum.repos.d/, create a local repo, something like

# vim /etc/yum.repos.d/local.repo

2. Inside the /etc/yum.repos.d/local.repo,

name=My Local Repo

One more thing you may want to know is that the RPMs from the CentOS Disks including repomd.xml be copied into /home/user1/RPM

3. Disabled the rest of the Repo. For example,
# yum-config-manager --disable rpmforge

4. The Yum will pull from the enabled Repository only.
