Anaconda's automagic dump

Comment 2 Michael Lee Yohe 2003-01-07 15:27:48 UTC
Something in your laptop is now crippled too.  I pulled the following
information from the Anaconda dump file that you provided.

<4>hdc: ATAPI 24X DVD-ROM drive, 128kB Cache

<4>hdc: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }
<4>hdc: ATAPI reset complete
<4>hdc: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }
<4>hdc: ATAPI reset complete
<4>end_request: I/O error, dev 16:00 (hdc), sector 1644
<4>hdc: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }
<4>hdc: ATAPI reset complete
<4>hdc: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }
<4>hdc: ATAPI reset complete
<4>end_request: I/O error, dev 16:00 (hdc), sector 1644

You have a definite seek error at sector 1644.  There are no references to you
having run mediacheck on the CDs that you used in the log file.  Did you check
the media _prior_ to installation?

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-01-07 15:49:18 UTC
Yes.  The media check always stayed at 0% ?? and ended with a recommendation to 
not use this CD.  I plunged ahead anyway since cdrecord had reported the same 
number of reads as writes ending normally.  Now if the CD check had actually 
reported a seek error and said sector 1644 is unreadable, then I may have paid 
a bit more attention.

Anyway these are more excuses than anything else.  Sorry to have taken up your 
time.  With egg on my face, I'll stop now.

Comment 4 Michael Lee Yohe 2003-01-07 16:01:13 UTC
mediacheck is made to be a simple frontend to check the checksum reported by the
disc's actual data.  Details like "sectors" and "seek error" could be confusing
to some.  For the advanced user, a quick perusing of the stderr virtual terminal
shows the details behind mediacheck.

Anyway - do a new burn, mediacheck, and then upgrade and your system should be
fine and dandy.
