Your problem looks different from 443083 as you're not making a separate /tmp
partition. This is media problems, caused either by a bad download or bad burn,
or perhaps hardware troubles. Did you run media check?

Yes I ran media check, and it told me it was successful.
Is there another test that I can do on the media to be sure it isn't
I made some other tries to install, I got the "same" error, but not a the same
Can you boot with libata.dma=0 and see if this works better for you?
I burn again a dvd with k3b on a FC6 box, check it with k3b, check again on
installation, made a try without boot option and another try with option.
I don't know to think...
I thought I built my Fedora 9 RC1 DVD iso with rawhide packages using this
I successfully install this F9RC1.
But I saw after that package dates were 2008-04-17 :-(
So, it seems I just rebuilt a Fedora 9 Preview.
As F9 will be available in 6 days, I don't intend to try to rebuilt an iso
with rawhide and to do some others tests and so, can't provide more info.
Perhaps this bug can be closed
This error is definitely coming from the drive saying it is unable to read a
sector. Sometimes a drive will work okay by itself but the computer doesn't have
enough power to run the DVD drive and hard drive(s) at the same time.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I made many, many, many tries.
All failed :-(

Finally, I decided to install F9 from CD, a very long process, but I

This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
