Description Geoff Keating 2001-06-16 21:23:54 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i586)

Description of problem:
When I installed "everything" on a machine which I later found to have bad
RAM, I later found that not all packages were installed.  In
/tmp/install.log, I got:
unpacking of archive failed on file
/usr/src/linux-2.4.2/fs/nls/nls_cp932.c: cpio: MD5 sum mismatch
but I didn't see this until after the system was mis-installed.

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
See 'description'.

Actual Results:  Messages of the form:
Installing vorbis-devel.
Installing Xaw3d-devel.
Installing XFree86-devel.
unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.a: cpio: MD5 sum

Installing gtk+-devel.

in install.log.

Expected Results:  A graphical notification by anaconda that not all
requested packages were successfully installed.
