          You needed to search the forum before ever posting your own question.

          Here:
          https://forums.oracle.com/forums/search.jspa?threadID=&q=gui&objID=f822&dateRange=all&userID=&numResults=15

          Glance at #14 out of the 114 results from that search (at least as a starting point).
          The other 113 search results might be of some help as well.

            In addition to the previous reply, the following will configure YUM to use your local installation DVD:

            Login as root and paste the following to the system command prompt:

            <pre>
            cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/dvd.repo <<EOF
            [Install_DVD_base]
            name=Install DVD
            baseurl=file:///mnt/Server
            gpgcheck=0
            enabled=1
            skip_if_unavailable=True
            EOF
            #
            </pre>

            To use the yum software repository of the OS installation DVD, it will be necessary to mount it:

            <pre>
            cd /
            umount /dev/cdrom
            mount -o loop -t iso9660 /dev/cdrom /mnt

            yum clean all
            yum repolist
            </pre>


            Note: The oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall package is not on the installation DVD, unless you use Oracle Linux 6.3.
