13.2. Setting Up the Distribution

To set up a distribution from a full Fedora DVD or ISO image, use this procedure.

Network Locations

To create a local mirror from an existing network source, skip this section and refer instead to Section 13.3, “Mirroring a Network Location”.
  1. If you are using a DVD disc or ISO image, Create a directory mount point:
    mkdir /mnt/dvd
    To mount a physical DVD disc, use the following command:
    mount -o context=system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 /dev/dvd /mnt/dvd
    To mount a DVD ISO image, use the following command:
    mount -ro loop,context=system_u:object_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 /path/to/image.iso /mnt/dvd

    If SELinux enabled, use the default label

    If SELinux is enabled, use the default iso9660_t label instead of httpd_sys_content_t.
  2. To support NFS installation, create a file /etc/exports and add the following line to it:
    /mnt/dvd *(ro,async)
    Start the NFS server using the following commands:
    systemctl start rpcbind
    systemctl start nfs
  3. To support HTTP installation, use yum to install the Apache web server if it is not already installed:
    yum -y install httpd
    Make a link to the mounted disc in the Apache public content area:
    ln -s /mnt/dvd /var/www/html/distro
