Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21594
Anaconda has an error on 1st step install.
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
I've dowloaded the ISO image for the Redhat 7 installation and burned it
into a CD, the copy was just fine.
When I start the installation, no matter on which machine I do it (I've
tried, IBM Netfinity, IBM PC 300, white brands or clone PCs, etc) I get the
I boot from CDROM or from floppy and I go into normal install or expert
install or text install then it loads vmlinuz, then it comes to the blue
screen and after a while I get:
Running anaconda - May take some time to load ...
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 210, in ?
from kickstart import Kickstart
Value error: bad marshall data
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals ...done
sending kill signals ...done
/mnt/source umount failed (16)
you may safely reboot your system
What can be happening and what is the solution ?
Passing to QA to reproduce.
this sounds very much like a bad cd medium ... please verify the md5sum of your
iso image, and re-try a new cd burn ...
we have not seen this problem here in our tests, and many bad medium problems
are similar to what you describe above ...
additionally, we are working to try to make the install handle possible
defective media better for future releases ...
thanks for your report!
Nope, I've downloaded the ISOs several times burned it in different brands of media, different speeds and burners, but same error.
I've mounted the iso image on a ftp dir and tried to install it from the network with ftp, and it worked.
