You appear to have a bad CD. Please test following the instructions at:


Comment 2 Amanda Elvin 2002-06-20 03:23:06 UTC
All cds passed the Linux media check.

Comment 3 Kees-Jan Koster 2002-06-23 15:48:19 UTC
I've got the same error, I wanted to install a server, so I choose it from the 
menu, and selected some other packages, but every time I get this error at 
around half the installation... and all of the cds passed the checks.

Comment 4 Jordan 2002-06-25 02:24:12 UTC
I too have received this error, my CDs passed the test and are Official RedHat 
7.3 CDs. I was trying to install do a basic workstation install using the text 
install method. The only similarity that jumped out at me from above was the 
fact that I also have an Nvidia graphics card, although mine is a TNT2.  I was 
unable to use the graphical install as anaconda failed on that.

I'm getting an unhandled exception at the end of my install also (with official
7.3 RH released CD's)  I'm unable to boot with GRUB or LILO and haven't yet been
able to make a bootable floppy.  Here's the first part of the message:

Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2002-07-17 21:42:56 UTC
These errors occur when a read error occurs from the CD.  Do to the different
access pattern of the media check from during an install, CD drives do not
reproducibly fail.

Can you try with a different CD drive?
