Description David Juran 2003-11-10 17:34:43 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030922

Description of problem:
When I try to install FC1 I get this message that I'm probably out of
disk space when the installer is trying to transfer the install image.
I have checked the MD5 sum of the images and thereafter checked the
CD:s themselves before install and it all passed. 
I have a fairly complex partition table (see attached output from
fdisk -l)
When I come to the screen where the installer asks me how I want to
partition, I choose to do it manually then I set /boot on /dev/sda1, /
on /dev/sda2 and swap on /dev/sda3.
Also do note that this computer does not have any IDE disks. /dev/hda
is a DVD+RW and /dev/hdc is a CD-ROM

Does booting with 'linux allowcddma' help?

Comment 3 David Juran 2003-11-12 10:13:54 UTC
Yes, this seems to remedy the problem 

Comment 4 Mike Flippin 2004-05-03 00:35:40 UTC
I encountered this problem with the DVD version of Fedora Core 2 Test
3. I didn't try installing with that command line switch, though. This
needs to be addressed!!

I just tried with the FC2 DVD to update my intallation, it passed the
step of transfering the install image without problems.
