I use Fedora 14. Some days ago, I used the command yum remove openoffice.org-* and removed openoffice successfully. The, I wanted to get it back. I have all the packages and dependancies required to install in an installation dvd. The problem is that when I try to manually install each package, yum does not check dependencies in the DVD. How can I configure yum to look for all dependancies and packages required, in the DVD?

Sounds like you need to update your /etc/yum.repos.d to include your dvd. See here for details: Howto Setup yum repositories to update or install package from ISO CDROM Image

Probably the easiest thing to do here, to just fix this problem, is to install the "yum-plugin-tmprepo" plugin and do:

yum history undo <transaction id> --tmprepo=/path/to/DVD/packages

...where you can get the transaction ID from yum history list openoffice.
