I have the yarrow's iso files on my HD in a RH9 system. Let's say I want
to upgrade selected packages using an "apt-get install" pointing to my
iso-mounted files, how do I do it?
i.e I mount the iso into some /mnt/yarrow1, /mnt/yarrow 2 etc..
Then what is the complete procedure to make my apt look into my own HD to
upgrade packages. Can anybody redirect me to the correct
resource or some literature hanging on the web? Thanks.
Assume also that I do not wish to burn CDs! I do not want to use

I just orphaned gdk-pixbuf in pkgdb.
It failed the mass rebuild, not much left that depends on it, and
nothing I need. ;)
% repoquery --source --whatrequires gdk-pixbuf
So, if anyone really really really wants to keep it alive, feel free to
take it and fix it so it builds and works. ;)
This is something I got in my mail box today.
As I don't have a valid answer for this, maybe someone else can answer for me?

Over the course of the day I recieved 22^3 mails from your friendly Bug Zapper.
Most of those bugs where bugs I had reported upon crashes using
bug-buddy. Bugs on different desktop tools such as .. synergy,
evolution, gwibber , gnome-settings and probably some others
I do understand that I development goes on and on .. and your fancy
devs don't care anymore about
bugs I reported on Fedora 12 as they are all hacking on Fedora 15.
But what I don't get is that non of these bugs was ever touched,
they've been automatically created , and automatically closed
<a href="http://tieguy.org/blog/2004/09/">Luis</a> already told us
ages ago .. that every project needs a bugmaster apparently Fedora
replaced that bugmaster with a Bug Zapper.
So can someone please explain my why I should continue to try to
improve Fedora by reporting bugs ?
In a move that will surprise few, I'm retiring hal-info in devel and
orphaned it in f15. If hal gets blocked for f16, then I'll do the same
The only thing that requires hal-info is hal, and libmtp-hal.
A long, long time ago (before the extras/core merge in fact i think) i
was given tomboy to help spread the influx of mono packages across
IIt's a neat program, but I don't really use it. I'm more of a
send-myself-email/scribble-on-whiteboard kind of guy. I'm also not
very good about maintaining it.
I've orphaned it now. If anyone is interested in it, feel free to take it.
I'm trying to run F15 beta LiveCD in a virtual machine, but I get
a complaint that GNOME 3 failed to load and is running in fallback
mode. Is there any way to make it work properly when virtualized?
