Description gsromero 1999-05-29 18:31:24 UTC
I created a CD (Rock Ridge + El Torito + Joliet Level 3)
of RH 6.0 for i386. When I try to install RH after it asks
for the CD I get the following:

error in exec of second stage loader :-(
  error: No such file or directory

I have seen there is a bug about JL3 CDs, but this has RR
too. Should RH CDs be RR + ET only?


Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-06-02 21:05:59 UTC
Red Hat CD's should be ISO9660 compliant with Rock Ridge Extensions
only. This should work fine.

Comment 2 gsromero 1999-06-20 20:14:59 UTC
I retoasted the CD, this time only RR + ET. Still fails.
I tried a magazine (PCWorld - Jun, Spain) and it worked.
Their CD is a Joliet Level 1 + RR + ET.
So that is not the problem.
I will try to check file by file to see what is different.


Comment 3 Hendri Hondorp 1999-06-29 09:58:59 UTC
I have the same problem too!
Some more information:

first stage version 6.0 Apr 13 1999 11:38:06
using device hdc
mounting hdc on /tmp/rhimage as type iso9660
creating directory /tmp/rhimage rc=0
calling mount(/tmp/hdc, /tmp/rhimage, iso9660, -1058209791, (nil))
removing device
error in exec of second stage :-(
  error: permission denied

Comment 4 David Lawrence 1999-07-02 17:37:59 UTC
Sometimes the file attributes can get munged when downloading. Are you
using a Linux box to create the CD or are you using a Windows box? You
need to make sure with whatever utility you are using, that all file
permissions and long filenames are conserved onto the CD image. That
is probably why you are getting permission errors.
