Description thomas fisher-york 2002-08-24 17:19:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)

Description of problem:
Installation failed 3 times. In each case I had (at least one) problems of 
form "somefilename cannot be opened". I hit Ok a couple of times and 
installation continues. Eventually I get an unhandled exception, with the 
suggestion I submit a bug report against anaconda.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install from CD_ROM. Either graphical or text.
2. Install in free disk space. Workstation with KDE, Development stuff.
3.One time I did custom install and selected few components and install worked.

Actual Results:  Unhandled exception, somewhere in install disk 2. (Not same 
place in
different attempts.)

Expected Results:  Successful installation

Additional info:

By looking at other reports I suspect this is a bad CD problem.
I did run mediacheck on the install disks 1 and 2 (which are the
only ones I used so far) and they passes.

REturned my disks to store where I got them and
got a new set of disks. Now installs ok.

It would be nice if in this case (install failure due to bad
CD's) the installation failed in a way that made it immediately
apparent what the problem is.

Glad to hear you were able to get things working!
