From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.0.2) Gecko/20021120 Netscape/7.01 Description of problem: During installation, after entering the root password and moving onto the next task, a little window pops up about loading (or reading) packages.

Created attachment 89498 [details] Traceback file of unhandled exception
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-22 05:55:09 UTC
Could you please verify your media following the instructions at http://rhlinux.redhat.com/anaconda/mediacheck.html?
Comment 3 William Johnsen 2003-01-22 14:22:16 UTC
Media was verified on installation machine before initial installation. After exception occurred, media was verified 2 more times. All 3 CDs were verified.
Comment 4 William Johnsen 2003-01-22 14:24:30 UTC
Also, used the iso file checker (md5) to ensure proper key.
Comment 5 William Johnsen 2003-01-24 20:52:27 UTC
Installed RedHat v7.3 last night without issue. Tried to install v8.0 over v7.3 with the upgrade option instead of the full installtion. When the "reading packages" window popped up, same error occurred.
Comment 6 William Johnsen 2003-01-27 06:43:35 UTC
Thought it might be helpful for you to know that I created, verified, and installed v7.3 media in precisely the same manner that I did with v8.0 - using iso images, verifying the media key with md5, booted and installed from cd-rom. v8.0 had an extra step to verify the media after boot just prior to installation. All defaults selected, then location, time zone, and packages altered post install success.
Comment 7 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-30 20:45:39 UTC
This error is the result of a read error from the media, causing the parser to fail. If you purchased this install media from Red Hat you can get replacement media. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 75008 ***
Comment 8 William Johnsen 2003-02-03 06:47:23 UTC
Successful attempt to install this media on different computer. No Unhandled Exception occurred where indicated.
