From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [ca] (Win95; U)
Description of problem:
I've tried to select diferent packages and the problem persists. I've tried in a P150 with 49 MB of RAM and with a PIII600 with 256 MB of
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Only start Installation
Actual Results: Fatal crash and the system dosen't work anymore
Does it crash and give you the opportunity to save the traceback to a floppy?
If so, could you attach this traceback?
Created attachment 39627 [details]
The file is the core dump of the installation process
Can you try booting with 'linux ide=nodma'? Does that help?
All drives attached in my computer are DMA access capable.That does'nt work!!
(The Computer is an Intel Pentium III 600 MHz with 256 MB of RAM. With a 40 GB
Hard Disk, and a Sony DVD.)
Oh, I see what the problem is. From looking far down in the traceback, I see
the following message:
Instalacisn de shadow-utils.
unpacking of archive failed on file /etc/login.defs;3bffa710: cpio: MD5 sum mismatch
This means that the installation of shadow-utils failed. This package contains
the /usr/sbin/usermod command, so when anaconda runs usermod in the post-install
script, the program crashes because it can't find the command. I think that you
have a bad cd since it appears that the shadow-utils RPM is corrupt on the cd.
Please reopen if you see this behavior with different cdroms.
