Description of problem:
Fedora 8 DVD was verified. A 'large' install was tried twice, both times corrupted packages were found on the DVD which resulted in termination of install. A 'minimal' install succeeded, but the update process destroyed the filesystems. (/usr went missing) CentOS 5 was installed after this with no issues.
A different system running Fedora 6 was (attempt) upgraded. The process hung at checking dependencies for packages selected for installation.
Has this been tested? This happened in front of a business who was considering moving to Fedora. They have decided not to. This version doesnt appear to be ready for prime time. I would suspect the media, expect it passed verification.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.I selected 'everything' and installed. It failed.
2. I allowed auto update on a new install, that failed.
3. I booted on the DVD (Fedora 6 system) and selected upgrade - that hung.
Installs, updates and upgrades.
I'm sure this works for some. Sadly, I fell off the porch.
Yes of course we tested it. We test this a lot. However different people have
different hardware which could have different problems, so we must rely on the
community for testing as well to make sure we get good enough coverage.
Without extra information (like the /tmp/anaconda.log or /tmp/syslog) from your
system, we will most likely not be able to debug what's going on. We don't have
enough information here to do anything.
