Description of Problem:
rh7.2 Anaconda installation fails when installing to /dev/hde5 on PDC20265 onboard controller. Athon 900Mhz, ASUS A7V133 mboard, bios (June 2001), Radeon VE graphics card, no standard floppy drive - use superdisk as slave on secondary ide controller.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always errors out during installation during portion when files are copied/installed to hard drive.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. using custom package installation
2. not choosing individual packages
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 620 in?
intf.run(id, dispatch, configFileData)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/text.py", line 408, in run dispatch.gotoNext()
File "/usr/bin/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 208, in moveStep

rpm.mergeHeaderListFromFD(self.hdlist, fd, 1000004)
rpm.error: match tag mismatch
the above described error is consistent in both graphical and text installation modes.It's possible the bios and Hardware (via chipset) config may be buggy... so currently, to get Linux to install at all, I am using the default bios settings for the newest bios version.
Did you check the md5sums of the ISO's before you burned them? I think you
might have bad cd's.
wow, that did it. thanks. will "religiously" use md5sum on all downloaded
images from now on.
Yes, md5sum is your friend. :)
