rpm -ivh /mnt/Packages/deltarpm-3.5-0.5.20090913git.el6.x86_64.rpm
rpm -ivh /mnt/Packages/python-deltarpm-3.5-0.5.20090913git.el6.x86_64.rpm
rpm -ivh /mnt/Packages/createrepo-0.9.9-22.el6.noarch.rpm

rpm --import /mnt/RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-beta
rpm --import /mnt/RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release

mkdir /var/repo
mkdir /var/repo/rhel66
cd /var/repo/rhel66/
cp -R /mnt/Packages/* .

cd /var/repo/
createrepo .

vi /etc/yum.repos.d/server.repo

name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.6

yum list

umount /mnt

yum install -y xauth

Job done
