Description Ulises Melendez 2002-05-14 22:01:13 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
After an excruciatingly long installation process (2+ hrs), the installer 
encountered an unhandled exception error.  The module it was installing at the 
time was lynx-2.8.4-18.  This is reflected in the dump because the last entry 
made was "Installing lynx-2.8.4-18."  I was about 2 mins. from a successful 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Perform a custom installation
2.Include lynx as one of the packages to be installed

You are getting read errors from your CD. You can test the CDs by booting the
installer with the commandline 'linux mediacheck' and following the instructions.
