Description of problem:
When attempting to upgrade fedora 0.95 to FC 1, the installer bails
An error occurred transferring the install image to your hard drive.
You are probably out of disk space.
I have 18G free, so I'm not out of disk space.
The last message on VT1 is:
Error loading new keyboard definition
There is no shell running on VT2.
Last message on VT3 is:
moving(1) to step preinstallconfig
Last message on VT4 is:
<6>Adding swap: 1044216K swap-space
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Stick CD1 in and try to upgrade my system :-)
I verified all 3 CDRs, so it's not a media problem. I don't know where
to look - any suggestions?
Does booting with 'linux allowcddma' help?

Yes ... and no.
One system upgraded fine with the additional option. Another (actually
the same system, with a different hard drive) still reported an error
in transferring the install image. On that system, VT2 showed:
-/bin/sh: relocation error: -/bin/sh: symbol, version GLIBC_2.0 not
defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference
I tried that one again without "allowcddma" and it showed the same
error message on VT2 (instead of shell prompt), so I assume that is
I try to install Fedora Core 1 without upgrading my system and I have
the same problem while anaconda trasfering the install image :-(.
How I can do to step this problem? :\
"linux allowcddma" worked for me. What's the cause?
This was caused by a kernel bug in the Fedora Core 1 kernel that is no
longer an issue in newer releases with the 2.6 kernel.
