I've downloaded three RPMs which need to be installed together. When I fire off the command yum localinstall httpd-2.4.6-6.fc20.x86_64.rpm, then the dependencies fedora-logos and httpd-tools are downloaded from the internet, but I already have the files fedora-logos-httpd-21.0.1-1.fc20.noarch and httpd-tools-2.4.6-6.fc20.x86_64 downloaded from the internet. How can I make yum use those instead?

When you do yum localinstall httpd-2.4***.x86_64.rpm, it will download all the dependency packages fedora-logos-httpd****.fc20.noarch, httpd-tools-***.x86_64 and install them as well. That is expected!

If you need extra packages that are not in your folder:

$> sudo yum localinstall *.rpm

this will download and install the package that are not in your folder in addition to the package in your folder.

If there are undisered RPM in your folder, list only the desired package (instead of '*.rpm')

$> sudo yum localinstall httpd-2.4.6-6.fc20.x86_64.rpm fedora-logos-httpd-21.0.1-1.fc20.noarch.rpm httpd-tools-2.4.6-6.fc20.x86_64.rpm

localinstall isn't necessary, only use: yum install path/of/rpm

When using dnf, you can just "dnf install *.rpm" (no need for "localinstall" here).
