Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 63498
Installation fails because CDROM #2 is Never Recognized
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of Problem: When attempting to install SkipJack beta2 on my 96 MB
IBM ThinkPad (380XD), the installer prompts me to insert the second CD. I do
this, and the installer displays the message "This is not the correct Red Hat
CDROM". I have downloaded the ISO from two different sites, have used isoverify
to check the ISOs both times, have tried all of the other CDs JIC, but no luck.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): SkipJack Beta2
How Reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin installing on my think pad (from scratch, not an upgrade, laptop
config, auto-partitioning, static IP, etc).
2. When prompted to insert CD #2, do so.
3. Installer reports that this is incorrect CD, and will not proceed.
Installation must be aborted.
I would be able to complete installing Skipjack Beta 2 and run Red Hat Linux.
Feel free to contact me for more info
What are the contents of the .disc2-i386 file if you mount disc2?
The file contains the following:
Skipjack 7.2.92 disc2
Thanks. I meant to ask what the .disc1-i386 file contains on disc1 as well.
The .disk1.386 file contains the following:
Skipjack 7.2.93 disc1
It appears your disc1 is from a different tree build than your disc2. This will
not work because they are not compatible.
