Description Anas Mustafa 2004-10-12 19:03:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1)

Description of problem:
When installing RHEL4Beta1 Refresh on Groucho (HS20 w/ Nacona
processor), the installer gave error messages saying that packages
libgcc.3-4.1-10 and xsri-2.1.0-8 could not be installed even though I
tried it thrice with newly burned different CDs. However, when I did rpm
query on that I found out that the packages have been installed and their
dependencies have been installed too. I don't see a reason why it says
that those two packages could not be installed. Please let me know if
there is something wrong with RHEL4Beta1 Rfrsh source because I got if
from RedHat. Thanks.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libgcc-3.4.1-10 and xsri-2.1.0-8

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install RHEL4Beta1 Refresh on Groucho blades(HS20) w/ latest BIOS.
2.during CD2 install it gives error message that package
libgcc-3.4.1-10.i386 could not be intalled because of corrupted media
or missing package.
3.during CD3 install it gives error message that package xsri-2.1.0-8
could not be intalled because of corrupted media or missing package.

Actual Results:  It then goes through install process installs all the
dependencies, and finishes with a fully running intalled RedHat
system. It even shows that the packages libgcc and xsri are installed.

Expected Results:  I was expecting the system will not install because
of dependencies on libgcc and xsri, but it did install fine. Also, I
was expecting that when I query with rpm -q libgcc it would show that
the packages xsri and libgcc are not there but it showed the packages
are installed. I queried for dependencies rpm -ql --requires libgcc
and the dependencies were installed too.

Can you please switch to the shell on tty2 and grab

Comment 2 Anas Mustafa 2004-10-13 18:42:32 UTC
I could not find it. I don't understand see install.log. I will check 
using "find" command to see if I can find install.log. I am going to 
send you more info as to what happens when I try to 
grab /mnt/sysimage/root/install.log on RHEL4 Beta1 Refresh system. 

Comment 3 Anas Mustafa 2004-10-19 13:51:11 UTC
I could not grab /mnt/sysimage/root/intall.log because there is no 
directory under /mnt called sysimage when switching to tty2 shell...I 
guess I am not understanding you solution please provide little more 
detail as to where exactly the install.log is?? thanks

Comment 4 Anas Mustafa 2004-10-29 16:26:25 UTC
I looked inside the intall.log and found out that the packages are 
installed. However, Whenever I try to install RHEL4 Beta1 Refresh on 
Groucho it keeps saying that the packages 'libgcc' and 'xsri' can not 
be open due to corrupt CD or missing package. 

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-12-01 18:52:12 UTC
Is this still happening with beta2?
