Description rjmyers1 1999-08-21 12:52:39 EDT
I have just purchased 6.0 sparc version at a local retailer.
When I try to install the software, I boot off of the cdrom
drive that's internal to my ss20 and can get through the
installation process until it starts to do the actual
installation/reading of the rpm's off of the cdrom (right
after going through the "finding overlapping files" screen).
At this point, I get the message "error installing package:
 cannot open RPM file for setup-  no such
file or directory."  HELP!!!

the registration number is 3a82e80a07f196c4 if you need it.

Switch over to the second virtual console (alt-f2); if you
switch to the RedHat/RPMS directory, is there a setup
RPM there? If so, try, 'cat setup- > /dev/null`

The RedHat/RPMS directory should be off the root directory ; if
it did get through some of the packages, that means that it's

Does it fail on the same packages every time, or does it change?
