yum Cannot open: oracle-instantclient11.2-basic- Skipping

I am following this article on installing the oracle client RPMs on a CentOs 6.x server using yum localinstall.for some reason yum cannot open the RPMs – and I am at a loss as to what the next step should be.

[me@somewhere oracle-install-files]$ ls -l

total 24
-rwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 5307 Feb 12 11:35 oracle-instantclient11.2-basic-
-rwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 5307 Feb 12 11:35 oracle-instantclient11.2-devel-
-rwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 5307 Feb 12 11:35 oracle-instantclient11.2-sqlplus-

[me@somewhere oracle-install-files]$ sudo yum localinstall oracle* --nogpgcheck

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security
Setting up Local Package Process
Cannot open: oracle-instantclient11.2-basic- Skipping.
Cannot open: oracle-instantclient11.2-devel- Skipping.
Cannot open: oracle-instantclient11.2-sqlplus- Skipping.
Nothing to do

I tried pathing them out individually like this:

sudo yum localinstall oracle-instantclient11.2-basic- --nogpgcheck

similar error (but only for the individual rpms).

well.. …you canot wghet these files directly. They need to be “approved”
