Description of problem: AMD-64 dvd iso image of fedora core 3 test 2 (2.91) is 4.6GB in size while a blank dvd disk will only hold 4.4GB. The i386 dvd iso image is rightly sized though. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info:

Comment 2 Uttiya Chowdhury 2004-09-24 19:00:47 EDT
Interestingly, I burnt the DVD image using overburn option (which basically simply ignores that the image is larger than the disk and writes as much as it can) and did a successful install using that. I guess for this install, the installation program simply didn't call for the packages that were not burnt on the disk...

The problem with 'overburn' mode is that it'll basically ignore the fact that there really isn't enough space, and proceed anyway. In this case serendipity may be on our side and the resultant disc is installable, but one doesn't know what, if anything, actually 'gets lost' / corrupted without some extensive investigation. For this reason (and general principle) I've commended placing MD5/SHA1 hashes on all discs as a standard process -- https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=133624 growisofs -overburn -Z /dev/sr1=../FC3-test2-x86_64-DVD.iso About to execute 'builtin_dd if=../FC3-test2-x86_64-DVD.iso of=/dev/sr1 obs=32k seek=0' :-( /dev/sr1: not enough space available to accomodate this volume! :-! ignoring... :-( /dev/sr1: 2295104 blocks are free, 2387426 to be written :-! ignoring... ... 4697325568/4700372992 (99.9%) @2.4x, remaining 0:00 :-[ LBA=230540h, SENSE KEY=5h/ASC=21h/ASCQ=00h ] :-( write failed: Input/output error So the image is exactly 189,075,456 bytes too large, which is much larger than is possible by any account I'm aware of to possibly overburn on a standard DVD+/-R/RW without data loss. Looking at a directory of the files on the disc sorted by size, I'd vote for leaving out the OpenOffice / Koffice / KDE SRPMs which are quite large... and by the time anyone wants to hack on office applications they probably have a pretty well functioning system which can be used to download the SRPMs / CVS for those. To check the integrity of your disc -- mount FC3-test2-x86_64-DVD.iso /media/loop0 -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop3,blocksize=2048 (cd /media/loop0 ; find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 md5sum --binary ) > FC3-test2-x86_64-DVD.iso.loopback.files0.md5s (cd /media/sr1 ; find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 md5sum --binary ) > FC3-test2-x86_64-DVD.iso.burned.files0.md5s Then a diff --minimal of FC3-test2-x86_64-DVD.iso.loopback.files0.md5s and FC3-test2-x86_64-DVD.iso.burned.files0.md5s shows the following corrupted files -- fortunately none of them seem needed for the basic install -- ./SRPMS/vnc-4.0-6.src.rpm ./SRPMS/vorbis-tools-1.0.1-4.src.rpm ./SRPMS/vsftpd-2.0.1-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/vte-0.11.11-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/w3c-libwww-5.4.0-10.src.rpm ./SRPMS/w3m-0.5.1-4.src.rpm ./SRPMS/w3m-el-1.4.3-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/webalizer-2.01_10-25.src.rpm ./SRPMS/wget-1.9.1-13.src.rpm ./SRPMS/which-2.16-4.src.rpm ./SRPMS/wireless-tools-27-0.pre25.1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/wl-2.10.1-3.src.rpm ./SRPMS/words-2-22.src.rpm ./SRPMS/wordtrans-1.1pre13-7.src.rpm ./SRPMS/wvdial-1.54.0-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/x3270-3.3.2.p1-6.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xalan-j-2.4.1-16.src.rpm ./SRPMS/Xaw3d-1.5-23.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xboard-4.2.7-5.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xcdroast-0.98a15-5.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xchat-2.4.0-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xcin-2.5.3.pre3-24.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xdelta-1.1.3-14.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xemacs-21.4.15-7.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xemacs-sumo-20040818-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xerces-j-2.2.1-17.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfce4-iconbox-4.0.6-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfce4-panel-4.0.6-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfce4-systray-4.0.6-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfce-mcs-manager-4.0.6-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfce-mcs-plugins-4.0.6-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfce-utils-4.0.6-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfdesktop-4.0.6-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xferstats-2.16-11.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xffm-4.0.6-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xffm-icons-4.0.6-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfig-3.2.4-5.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfprint-4.0.6-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfsprogs-2.6.13-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfwm4-4.0.6-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xfwm4-themes-4.0.6-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xhtml1-dtds-1.0-7.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xinetd-2.3.13-4.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xinitrc-4.0.4-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xloadimage-4.1-31.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xmlsec1-1.2.6-3.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xmltex-20020625-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xmlto-0.0.18-4.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xmms-1.2.10-6.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xorg-x11-6.8.0-4.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xosview-1.8.2-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xpdf-3.00-5.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xrestop-0.2-3.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xsane-0.92-13.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xscreensaver-4.18-3.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xsnow-1.42-15.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xsri-2.1.0-8.src.rpm ./SRPMS/xterm-192-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/yelp-2.6.2-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/ypbind-1.17.2-2.src.rpm ./SRPMS/ypserv-2.13-4.src.rpm ./SRPMS/yp-tools-2.8-7.src.rpm ./SRPMS/ytalk-3.1.1-16.src.rpm ./SRPMS/yum-2.1.3-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/zip-2.3-24.src.rpm ./SRPMS/zisofs-tools-1.0.6-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/zlib-188.8.131.52-1.src.rpm ./SRPMS/zsh-4.2.0-3.src.rpm YMMV
Comment 4 D. Hugh Redelmeier 2004-10-06 02:19:27 EDT
Created attachment 104824 [details] shell script to remaster FC3test2 X86_64 DVD .iso I've created a script to take the .iso and remaster it without the OpenOffice and koffice SRPMs. The resulting .iso works for me. I will attach the script. Be sure to review it before running it. The initial definitions will need to be adjusted for your environment.
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2004-10-09 18:30:24 EDT
FC3T3's x86_64 ISO is 2630025216 bytes. Appears that SRPMS were removed. I believe this issue is solved.
Comment 6 Jay Turner 2004-10-14 05:34:33 EDT
Closing this out, as the DVD image is indeed small enough now to fit.
