These are for the currently-available ISO's. What do your ISO's show?

I don't know what the "addition media disk" is, but inserted the Oracle Linux 6.3 x86_64 binary distribution DVD, which also has media.repo file in the root directory. And btw, I'm using VirtualBox and the DVD is an .iso disk image.

I did a bit of research and found the following: Apparently the diskinfo and the mediaid of the Oracle Linux 6.3 installation DVD do not match. I don't know if this could be the reason for the strange issue with gpk-update-icon creating the /etc/yum.repos.d/packagekit-media.repo file, but it might explain why the repo file does not work.
