Description Tony Cooke 2002-05-21 08:22:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0; H010818)

Description of problem:
When the installation runs it is fine up until it gets to a RPM with Jade in 
the name and it usually dies there, producing a floppy disk containing the 
error "Unhandled exception"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Install
2. Get to Jade RPM
3. "Unhandled Exception"

Actual Results:  I was asked to enter a floppy disk to save the debug data and 
then I was asked to reboot.

It appears your CD is bad - please check your CD set by booting the installer
with the command line 'linux mediacheck' and go through the tests.
Comment 4 Tony Cooke 2002-05-22 17:44:56 EDT
I ran the 'linux mediacheck' and after it checked the whole CD it came back 
with 'PASS'.

It didn't report any errors at all.
Comment 5 Tony Cooke 2002-05-22 19:39:59 EDT
By the way, I appologise if it was inappropriate of me to set the status of 
this bug to ASSIGNED. I wasn't sure if after I gave you the info I needed to 
somehow change the status. (It's my first time using Bugzilla.)

Anyway, I just thought if I oversteped myself I would appologise. I know you 
guys are busy.
Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2002-05-23 15:27:46 EDT
No problem :)

Did you test all the CDs?  Or did your install just need one CD?
Comment 7 Tony Cooke 2002-05-23 18:06:31 EDT
I just checked the first CD as it hasn't ever asked me for any others yet. (I 
haven't got past the first.  :-)

I'll check the others and get back to you.
Comment 8 Tony Cooke 2002-05-25 06:40:56 EDT
I ran 'linux mediacheck' across all 3 disks and the all PASSed.
Comment 9 Tony Cooke 2002-06-05 03:24:57 EDT
What next?
Comment 10 Michael Fulbright 2002-06-06 13:00:36 EDT
I still believe this is a media/CD drive related issue.

Could you try burning the CDs again, at a slower speed perhaps?

The program is dying because it cannot run a program (mkswap) from the CD.
