Have you tested your CDs?


Comment 2 Jamison Charlesworth 2002-08-19 16:44:12 UTC
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.

Comment 3 Jamison Charlesworth 2002-08-19 16:50:45 UTC
Have just re-tested all CD's and all pass without problem

Comment 4 Jamison Charlesworth 2002-08-19 17:06:34 UTC
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.

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2002-08-20 17:15:15 UTC
It is not able to umount because of a read error from the device.

Jeremy any idea why a hard drive install would fail?

Comment 6 Jamison Charlesworth 2002-08-20 17:32:21 UTC
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 /

It worked.

So it would seem that creating a partition that the installer uses on the same 
disk as the installation partition causes this error.

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-21 06:43:55 UTC
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.

Comment 8 Jeremy Katz 2006-04-24 18:57:11 UTC
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.
