Ok, since you need a remote upgrade then apt/yum/up2date is needed. For
apt you basically need to create a local repository of the RPMS. Suppose
you have the iso's mounted in /mnt/yarrow1, /mnt/yarrow2 and /mnt/yarrow3,
I'd probably do it somewhat like this (watch out for typos and thinkos, I
wrote this from top of my head so not tested.. ):
mkdir -p /var/tmp/fedora/RPMS.core
ln -s /mnt/yarrow1/Fedora/RPMS/* .
ln -s /mnt/yarrow2/Fedora/RPMS/* .
ln -s /mnt/yarrow3/Fedora/RPMS/* .
genbasedir --bloat /var/tmp/fedora
The add that to your sources.list: "file://var/tmp fedora core"
Must be a
typo error from you. I think that the correct expression is:
rpm file:/var/tmp fedora core
