Please test your CDs using these instructions:
I have checked my install media and all 3 discs PASS. So, I decided to try
the install one more time. About halfway through the install I recieved an
error ... "most likely your HDD is full". Hmm ... I have a 40GB HDD.
So, I rebooted with the #1 Install CD and then "linux rescue" ... mounted
my system as root (chroot /mnt/sysimage) ... and discovered that the previous
bad install attempts had left some MASSIVE files on my HDD. One in particular
(kcore) is over 20GB in size!!!
I attempted to 'rm kcore' .. but was 'not allowed'.
I really don't want to have to wipe the HDD and start from scratch. What is
my next step??
Please do not include tracebacks in the comments, attach them instead.
Please do not change the state of a bug unless you know what you are doing.
This bug should not be in the MODIFIED state.
Clean up your hard drive and try again. (rm -f may help, if not, you may need to
chattr -i the file(s) first, if that fails, boot with a rescue cd and try
removing the files in that environment.)
Closing due to inactivity - please reopen if you have addition information to add.
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
