what is your install source ...? a CDROM ...? network based ...? Hard drive ...?
I ask because the installer is right at the point of reading the package
information, but the error indicates that the file containing that information
(comps) is not in a proper format ... can you verify your install source ...?
we've seen similar problems with bad ftp downloads or other issues with copying
the source media ...
The install source is boot from cdrom. The same thing happens with a diskette
image, then proceed from cdrom.
The cdrom iso was downloaded from a mirror (I forget which).
Problem has been resolved. A corrupted comps file. I downloaded another iso
image from eecs.umich.edu and re burnt the cd which now works fine.
The original (corrupted) iso image came from cs.wisc.edu.
glad to hear your problem is resolved ... thanks for your report!
