Description Dan Yocum 2006-04-30 18:11:36 EDT
Description of problem:

I've downloaded the disc 1 installation iso from several mirrors (one from NCSA,
one from in .no, one from somewhere else, etc.) and it's corrupt from each one.  

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

FC5 release 1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. download FC-5-i386-disc1.iso from a mirror
2. run md5sum on the image
3. profit!
Actual results:

Here's the md5sum of the iso I download:

65230e2167655e0d652800fbbe49f072  FC-5-i386-disc1.iso

Expected results:

This is what it's supposed to be:

43546c0e0d1fc64b6b80fe1fa99fb6509af5c0a0  FC-5-i386-disc1.iso

Additional info:

Installation proceeds through root password setting then this error message is

Unable to read package metadata.  This may be due to missing repodata directory.
 Please ensure that your install tree has been correctly generated. 
failure: repodata/primary.xml.gz from anaconda:
[Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

Going to the shell (Ctl-Alt-F2) I can verify that
/mnt/source/repodata/primary.xml.gz exists (not sure if that helps in this case,

Comment 1 Dan Yocum 2006-04-30 18:19:33 EDT
OK, I realized that I ran the wrong checksum.  Here's the sha1sum output:

43546c0e0d1fc64b6b80fe1fa99fb6509af5c0a0  FC-5-i386-disc1.iso

So, that looks fine but still the installation fails giving the error message,

Comment 2 Dan Yocum 2006-04-30 18:34:26 EDT
OK, I've got it installing now, but I had to select an ftp site to make it work.
 I booted with 'linux otheroptions' (or whatever) selected 'ftp' then gave it a
valid ftp server and path and then it said "detected local installation method"
and it started installing....
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2006-05-01 15:40:29 EDT
Does your CD pass mediacheck (http://rhlinux.redhat.com/anaconda/mediacheck.html)?
Comment 4 Dan Yocum 2006-05-01 15:44:59 EDT

I will check when I get home, but note my additions, above.

Comment 5 Dan Yocum 2006-05-16 10:37:21 EDT
Indeed it does fail the mediacheck.
