Description jon54 1999-02-08 18:04:50 UTC
The install program wouldn't work on a FTP install or a NFS install. I don't have a CD rom on the 486 i'm trying to install on. First I tried to install via FTP. I had the CD in my win98/PII, with a FTP server running. It started fine. I specified all the packages I wanted installed, then when it was ftping them, all of them failed. The install program was trying to read a diff file than was on the CD. i.e. ypbind-2.4 when the CD contained ypbind-22.214.171.124. THEN, i tried nfs. I ran a nfs deamon on my PII with the CD filesystem exported. When the install program tried to mount the remote filesystem, it just hung. It was actually talking to the nfs server, because the NFS server log said it was accessed from the linux host's IP. anyway, I have a RedHat 5.2 CD ordered from CheapBytes.com. The machine I'm isntalling to is a Intel486, 28 megs of ram, NE2000 nic card, and 2x100 meg HDs.

It sounds like something is wrong with the CD or with the way CheapBytes wrote it.Were you able to install from this CD locally?
Comment 2 jon54 1999-02-10 13:18:59 UTC
I got a local install from the CD to work. I think it had something to do with the crappy windows FTP server/ windows NFS server not talking to linux right. anyway, i'm gonna try to export the cdrom from my first linux install then NFS install it on the 486.
