Have you tested your CDs?
Yes, I also tried downloading the ISO image to the hard drive and installing
from that rather than the CDRom, the same problem occurs.
I am installing to a hard drive on a HighPoint 37x2 controller, but this
worked fine for RH7.2 previously both with straight install and with
Highpoint's own RedHat install disks.
Its the /mnt/source that it seems not to be able to unmount which is strange
as thats not linked to the controller, so I am discounting a problem with that.
Have just re-tested all CD's and all pass without problem
Sorry to reply 3 times without you replying!, but is there a way of forcing an
unmount, then carrying on or making the debugger 'restart' the task of
umounting and getting the next CD? Its just that I need this machine running
as soon as possible for a client.
Basically I am after any way of getting it working!.
Many thanks, Jamie.
It is not able to umount because of a read error from the device.
Jeremy any idea why a hard drive install would fail?
As an update:
I decided to not to add a second partition to the first hard drive (/disk1),
as I noticed that the installer was copying the install image to that disk
rather than /
So it would seem that creating a partition that the installer uses on the same
disk as the installation partition causes this error.
It's possible that there was a read error in copying to the drive. Hopefully
the code in our betas should avoid any problems in this.
Mass-closing lots of old bugs which are in MODIFIED (and thus presumed to be
fixed). If any of these are still a problem, please reopen or file a new bug
against the release which they're occurring in so they can be properly tracked.
