I don't know how it isn't in the "same format".  I mount the i386 DVD iso to os/i386/ and the x86_64 DVD iso to os/x86_64/.  I've been using those directories for my [base] repositories and they work fine from yum to install packages and package groups.

Look for yourself here:




Those map out to /var/www/html/linux/centos/5/os/{arch} on the filesystem and I run your jigdo script from /var/www/html/linux/centos/5/os/.  Is that correct?

I'm glad to see yours are coming out correctly.  I wonder what I'm doing wrong?
