How can one get yum to resolve dependencies automagically
from the Packages directory of the mounted DVD?


goto /etc/yum.repos.d/ and create a repo file. You can use another file like fedora.repo as your template. change the repo location to the mount point for the DVD. Something like file:///path/to/DVD/. Name your repo with something like localrepo. Then do,

$ yum --disablerepo=fedora,updates install <package>

This should do it. :)

PS: don't forget to put enabled=1 in the new repo file you create.
