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.

I wounder if you could just copy the medio.repo file from the DVD.

I checked the contents of that file after you mentioned it.

[InstallMedia]
name=Fedora 11
mediaid=1243981097.897160
metadata_expire=-1
gpgcheck=0
cost=500

Can't make heads or tails of this. Looks like a few lines like "baseurl=" are missing.

Open source is the future. It sets us free.
