Tried to install by making less option selections. Failed much earlier, in the same way..this time on libz. Can't attach the crash file since it was formatted for UNIX and not for DOS.

Files on CDROM that's being complained about 09/03/2002 01:27p 117,947 libmng-1.0.4-1.i386.rpm 09/03/2002 01:00p 36,660 zlib-1.1.4-4.i386.rpm
Comment 3 Frank Saxton 2003-01-04 23:35:36 UTC
Tried installing just the RH workstation software. Failed in the same way (zlib). The debugger said fopen /mnt/source/.discinfo not found. I presume this is a file being written to on the hard drive being built. Fails about 1/4 way through the install process. I'm guessing this must be an anaconda bug.. File already open/locked?
Comment 4 Frank Saxton 2003-01-05 01:06:16 UTC
At the time of failure, the subdirectory /mnt/source does not exist on hdb. I presume that it once did otherwise the install wouldn't have gotten this far, right? Don't see anything in the errata or bug lists about this although I assume that it fails this way for everyone.
Comment 5 Frank Saxton 2003-01-05 05:43:34 UTC
Found some information in a closed bug report that fixed my problem. Apparently a lot of people are having problems with CDROMs and the update software I downloaded served as a good workaround. As a suggestion, you might consider implementing a less fatal error handler. You also might consider putting this info in the errata sheets since I had to do a *LOT* of searching to actually find teh info I needed.

Resolution == RESOLVED DUPLICATE 75377 Component == Anaconda If you had included the Anaconda dump file when you initially filed this bug, you would have been pointed to the bug that would have assisted you. Glad you found the solution to your problem, though.
