Description of problem:
I booted with the 1st cd of the redhat 7.3 I downlaoded from one mirror. The
boot goes well, but it does an error after loading the aic7xxx drivers for my
writer. The error messages displays two times and say this: error 2 reading
header:cpio: Bad magic
If I skip the installation of the aic7xxx driver the error appears only one time.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch the normal way with "enter" after booting with the cd.
2.Waiting for the installing of the aic7xxx
3.The error appears ant the X failed to starts after.

Actual Results:  Tis error message appears: error 2 reading header:cpio: Bad magic

Expected Results:  No error message has to appear, and the X has to launch normaly

Additional info:

My configuration is this:

Athlon 1700+ CPU
SCSI Plexwriter 12/10/32 CD-ROM writer
Abit kg7-raid Motherboard
Slot in pioneer IDE CD-ROM
GeForce 3 tti200

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-06-10 02:27:00 UTC
Sounds like your download was corrupted, or else your media is bad.  Please
run the mediacheck feature of the installer any time you have installation
problems/errors to ensure that your media is not at fault.

At the boot prompt of the installer type: linux mediacheck

Does the mediacheck succeed or fail?

The mediacheck fail :-(
How can it be?


Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2002-06-11 05:46:42 UTC
If mediacheck fails, then there are various possible reasons:

1) ISO image was corrupted during download

2) Your media is bad, or your media and your burner don't like each other

3) Some other reason for bad interaction between burner and media

Try using some other brand of media, or burning the disks at a lower speed.
You might also want to try cdrecord instead of cdrdao.

Closing as NOTABUG.
