I have tryied the Anaconda Errata update disk I found on your site, but it
Can you try booting with 'linux ide=nodma'? Does that help?
No change, still get the same error and termination/kill.
When the crash occurs, can you press <Ctrl><Alt><F4> and see if there are any
No error message
Its just tells me my USB mouse was detected and installed.
Weird. Are these cd's that you burned yourself? If so, did you verify the
md5sums of the ISO's before burning them?
No, and I already deleted the images... DAMN
Yes, They are burned.
Always a possibility of bad burns, but I wanted to see if there were other
Any other ideas?
Well, this is the only thing I can think of. The installer is looking for files
(a library in this case) and is having trouble doing this. I can't say for sure
that the cd is the problem, but it sounds like it to me. I haven't seen this
particular problem in all of my testing. Usually when the installer has trouble
pulling files from the cd, it's a bad cd.
Do you think you could redownload cd #1? Like I said, I'm not 100% certain this
is the problem, but it seems likely.
Downloading CD1 as we speak. getting 300k. I'll check the MD5 sums after and
burn it. I'll post after I try that
Where do I get the CD checksums?
In the MD5SUM file on the FTP site.
For 7.1, the contents are:
I have downloaded the Disk1 ISO 5 times now, and the checksums NEVER match.
I've tried downloading it just from ftp.redhat.com with bulletproof FTP, using
getright, downloading it from other sites... but the checksums never match.
Hmmm...I don't know. I'm not familiar with bulletproof FTP, but have you made
sure that the transfer mode is set to binary? You probably have, but that's the
only thing I can think of. You could try just downloading the bootnet.img file
from the /images directory, make a boot floppy from it, and then doing an FTP
based install from the web.... Other than that, I'm out of ideas.
Actually, The transfer mode was set to Auto, Which could be ANCI or Binary...
I'll try to redownload it under BINARY only mode and let you know.
Yes, I have seen some FTP clients get confused and do ASCII mode sometimes when
they should have done binary. Let me know how it turns out.
