Description Need Real Name 2000-10-20 10:48:52 UTC
The following error occurred using the original v7.0 and lastest update (update-disk-20001009.img) of the anaconda installer while trying to 
update version 6.2 to version 7.0:    (This is the output of the anacdump.txt file)

If you burned this CD image yourself make sure the ISO you downloaded matches
the md5sum given on the ftp site. Most likely you have a bad CD.

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2000-10-31 03:29:49 UTC
This error was first experienced with the deluxe retail package for v7.  The update was attempted again using the new anaconda update image 20001009.
I do not believe this to be a corrupt image problem, unless it was corrupt on the v7 retail package.  Has there been any reported image problems?

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-11-03 20:18:48 UTC
I do not know of any issues - this error occurs when the MAKEDEV package does
not exist on the CD, or it could not be read.  That points at either a media
error, or a problem with the CDROM drive.

You may want to consider getting replacement CDs.
