Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188163
Installer doesn't recognize inserted CD3; passed all checks before install
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:24 EST
Description of problem: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update 3 RC4 cannot install on
a system here. When prompted for disc 3, it responds "That's not the correct
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS CDROM." The MD5SUM for the ISO is correct, and the
installer's own disc checker passes the disc.
The installation was attempted on a Colfax International 4 processor machine,
using AMD dual core CPUs. The motherboard is a Tyan Thunder K8QS Pro S4882.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RHEL 4 Update 3
How reproducible: Two out of two
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Burn the ISOs available on redhat.com
2. Begin graphical installation
a. Note that I disabled most server packages (HTTP server)
b. Install most of the development tools (gcc, gcc-4 with all its variants)
c. Opted for KDE instead of GNOME
d. Install compatibility packages
3. Insert the CDs as expected until reaching CD3
Prompt: Please insert Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS disc 3 to continue
Prompt: That's not the correct Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS CDROM
Installer then asks for disc 3 again.
Recognition of the disc and continued installation.
I've been told these discs were RHEL3u7 i386 GA. Here's the .discinfo for CD3
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
Can you attach /tmp/anaconda.log and /tmp/syslog to this bug report?
I thought this had been closed. I had a discussion about getting fresh ISOs
from RedHat, and that seemed to fix the problem. It was unusual, but it worked.
Closing on the basis of comment #3. Thanks for the report.
