I've seen this bug posted before, but some have been closed for lack of
input or there have been no responses for over a month. This problem is
likely related to the other anaconda install problems, but my error
message was a little different than the others.
I'm running into a problem on a BigSur A3 stepping Bios 59. I'm getting
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 423, in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1002, in run
rc = apply(step(), step)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1457, in doInstall
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 76, in filesDone
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py," line 323, in ejectCdrom
SystemError : (5, 'Input/output error')
The install bombs after this and I'm not able to boot even though the
kernel images are on the /boot/efi partition.
I ran into this problem also using a BigSur A1 stepping bios 39, but after
I retried the install a couple of times, it worked fine.
I'm surprised it got as far as it did - ia64 is not a supported platform for
Sorry I wasn't more specific....I'm running the IA64 test distro you guys
