Description Andre Reis 2002-09-13 10:46:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:
Listing 2 problems when installing RH 7.3

Partitioning: Autopartitioning unallocated space. Before the file copying 
process, when the partitions are being created, error " Unable to mount /hdb1; 
Partition may be already formatted(...)". Strange soluction: manually creating 
partitions with Partition Magic 7 and then simply assigning mount points seems 
to work.

RPMs: see the attached dump. Error "rpm.error: cannot open" (in .iso with both 
MD5sum/linux-mediacheck being successful) in a simple installation (Worstation 
& KDE).


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installation from CD-ROM.


Additional info:

10Gb Western Digital Drive running as Slave in Main IDE Channel. Plextor 
PX1210 CD-ROM.

Just a note: the "rpm.error: cannot open" error happens in the end of 
the "Copying image file to hard disk" (or similar).

I would recommend testing your CDs:

Comment 4 Andre Reis 2002-09-16 17:40:58 EDT
As stated in the Bug description:
"(in .iso with both MD5sum/linux-mediacheck being successful)"

But it's weird, yes.

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-02 15:57:48 EDT
My apologies I overlooked that information.

Any ideas Jeremy?
Comment 6 Andre Reis 2002-10-02 16:45:15 EDT
A sidenote, none of these problems occured with RedHat 7.2. 
I'll try 8.0 when possible.

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2002-10-02 17:56:27 EDT
It's related to the cramfs errors in the syslog -- how did you boot the system?
Comment 8 Andre Reis 2002-10-03 13:39:21 EDT
Master CD-ROM, set as #1 boot device. Graphic installation, afterwards.

Comment 9 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-03 15:31:36 EDT
This is a media/CD drive issue.  You may want to consider trying a different CD
drive or brand of CD media.
