Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 113316
Disk 2 image corrupt.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:35 EST
Description of problem:
When installing on VMware on a dell 2.6ghz machine running XP pro,
get a corrupt disk or corrupt download error on xsane components.
Does not allow to skip file. (That is the main problem) when on disk
2 most of the compnents are optional (at least it appears they are)
why then do you not allow to skip file?
Also, if I do a disk check it fails. Havent checks the md5 yet but I
see no reason why it should fail due to the fact that I have a direct
connection and no errors where reported on download.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
corrupt file or disk 2 not passing integrity check.
Passes and installs or allows to skip that file and maybe flag it for
download after intall. (Thats what I would do... basically if it
fails on a non-essential package, skip that package but add it to an
auto install after the system is running)
Just verified MD5 it matches so the actual disk 2 image is corrupt.
Here is my md5:
Here is your md5 for this file
as you can see they match. So the source of this probelm appears to
be on your side. (have tried it on 3 different CD -Roms and the
actual CD ROM that burned the disk so you know it can read it.)
Not a package bug.
Does booting with 'linux allowcddma' help?
No that didn't fix it...
How about 'linux ide=nodma'?
Maybe you misburned the CD. Did you checksum the burned CD, or only
the downloaded image?
Most probably dodgy CD-R(W). I had the same problem - on the first try
disk 2 was reported corrupt by installer media test. After I used
another blank CD-RW for disk 2 the problem went away.
Good. Since Carl doesn't contradict this theory of a bad burn I'm
closing this one out.
