Have you tested your CDs? http://people.redhat.com/~msf/mediacheck.html
Comment 2 Jamison Charlesworth 2002-08-19 12:44:12 EDT
Yes, I also tried downloading the ISO image to the hard drive and installing from that rather than the CDRom, the same problem occurs. I am installing to a hard drive on a HighPoint 37x2 controller, but this worked fine for RH7.2 previously both with straight install and with Highpoint's own RedHat install disks. Its the /mnt/source that it seems not to be able to unmount which is strange as thats not linked to the controller, so I am discounting a problem with that.
Comment 3 Jamison Charlesworth 2002-08-19 12:50:45 EDT
Have just re-tested all CD's and all pass without problem
Comment 4 Jamison Charlesworth 2002-08-19 13:06:34 EDT
Sorry to reply 3 times without you replying!, but is there a way of forcing an unmount, then carrying on or making the debugger 'restart' the task of umounting and getting the next CD? Its just that I need this machine running as soon as possible for a client. Basically I am after any way of getting it working!. Many thanks, Jamie.
Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2002-08-20 13:15:15 EDT
It is not able to umount because of a read error from the device. Jeremy any idea why a hard drive install would fail?
Comment 6 Jamison Charlesworth 2002-08-20 13:32:21 EDT
As an update: I decided to not to add a second partition to the first hard drive (/disk1), as I noticed that the installer was copying the install image to that disk rather than / It worked. So it would seem that creating a partition that the installer uses on the same disk as the installation partition causes this error.
Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-21 02:43:55 EDT
It's possible that there was a read error in copying to the drive. Hopefully the code in our betas should avoid any problems in this.

Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be fixed). If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
