Description of problem:
"Fedora Core 2" Disk 2 - Fails while installing Fedora Core by saying
"Error while reading "xorg-X126.96.36.199-2", this is probably due to bad
media, not enough disk space, or bad hardware. This error is fatal.
Press "ok" to reboot."
This happened on an AMD Duron 800, with 1 GB ram on a SiS730S
motherboard. (Dedicated video ram was 16 MB, and 64 MB (tried twice)).
This same problem ("Fedora Core 2" Disk 2 - File
"xorg-X188.8.131.52-2") happened on a P3-450 with 256 MB ram and an Nvidia
Riva TNT 128 graphics card.
"Fedora Core 2" Disk 2 was downloaded from two different mirror
sites, on two different machines (The Duron 800 and the P3-450). Disk
2 passed the md5 sum on both machines. Disk 2 was copied to a CD using
two different CD-Copiers (and two different OS's), both copies passed.
Both copies passed the media check at installation. The "Disk 2" CD's
were not corrupt or damaged. "Disk 2" was checked against at least 4
CD-rom drives (passed on all).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2 on a SiS730S main board, 52x cdrom, 1 GB mem, 16 mb
video (8 mb video will lock up FC2 before it can load "anaconda"),
disable intergrated sound card.
2. Select packages so that "xorg-X184.108.40.206-2" will be used.
3. Insert "Fedora Core 2" Disk 2 (when asked) and wait for failure.
Actual Results: FC2 complained of a read error while reading package
"xorg-X220.127.116.11-2", and demanded a reboot.
Expected Results: FC2 should have copied "xorg-X18.104.22.168-2" without
Since FC2 failed (locked up before "anaconda") when 8 MB dedicated
video memory was selected (in the BIOS of the SiS730s main board), I
strongly think that this is a problem with P3 class machines (the mid
range machine during 1999, 2000). (Since it also failed on a friends
Fedora Core 2 installation works fine for me. Your media must
be broken. Please download and try again.
Setting status to WORKSFORME.
