1.3.4. Creating a Yum Repository

To set up a Yum repository, follow these steps:
Procedure 1.1. Setting Up a Yum repository
  1. Install the createrepo package:
    ~]# yum install createrepo
  2. Copy all of the packages into one directory, such as /mnt/local_repo/.
  3. Run the createrepo --database command on that directory:
    ~]# createrepo --database /mnt/local_repo
This will create the necessary metadata for your Yum repository, as well as the sqlite database for speeding up yum operations.
