Description of problem:
When I tried to upgrade my RH 7.2 to 7.3 the installer crashed on the third
disc. It told me to report the bug and save some file on a floppy disc.The
upgrade was done from cd and the discs passed the media check. I used the
GUI-version of anaconda.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Choose update
2.The upgrade begins

Actual Results:  Anaconda crashed and gave some kind of debug information.

Expected Results:  An upgraded system.

Additional info:

I don't know if this is a duplicate of bug #65199

I finaly did the upgrade with the help of apt-get (from freshrpms-net) and after
the did an upgrade from the CD's to install the package that was missing.

Your CDs are bad. You can test them following the instructions at:

I wrote in the bug report, I have tested the discs with "linux mediacheck" and 
they all were ok.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-07-09 21:12:19 EDT
These errors in your log file:

<4>hdc: irq timeout: status=0xd0 { Busy }
<4>hdc: ATAPI reset complete
<4>end_request: I/O error, dev 16:00 (hdc), sector 596772

indicate there were read errors from the CD. The mediacheck does not always
trigger these because the access pattern is different.
