Description Gregory Rickmar 2004-12-14 12:47:51 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/7.52 (Windows NT 5.1; U)  [en]

Description of problem:
After downloading the installation CD ISOs, checking checksums with 
md5sum and verifying that the checksums are correct, burning 
installation CDs, and using Anaconda at the beginning of the 
installation process to check each CD that each CD is OK, Anaconda 
tells me that EVERY CD is corrupted. Installation of RHEL4B2 is 
possible and (other than this problem) installation proceeds without 
incident. However, the resulting RHEL4B2 installation is VERY 
unstable, so much so that it is impossible to log off as one user to 
log on as another -- the system requires a warm boot using the 
computer's reset button.

Other downloads and installations, using the exact same equipment and 
techniques, of RHEL3 and Fedora have proceeded normally, without this 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Recheck ISO checksums.
2. Burn new CDs. Different burn settings (such as speed) with each 
burn are used with burning each new set of CDs.
3. Restart installation.

Actual Results:  I'm told every time that every CD is corrupted.

Expected Results:  Every CD should have passed Anaconda's 
verification process.

This is a dup of bug 131051, but it's a private bug, therefore I'm not going to
dup this against it.
