Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of Problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
During the installation - usually when it comes near the end of the second CD -
I get the following:

Install from ISO CD's
Steps to Reproduce:
I have used two different sets of CD's - different ISO's - same result.
I have tried this on two computers consisting of identical hardware..
New hardware with no OS..
80GB EIDE HD
AOPEN Micro AXT - integrated video/lan/sound

Your CD appears to be bad.
You can test it following these instructions:
As advised, I used linux mediacheck to test the media on all CD's. The five
disks for installation and source code passed. The program was unable to check
the other 3 disks stating "unable to read the disk checksum from the primary
volume descriptor". I then attempted to install the program again with the
same final result. I gets to the 50% installed point and stops with the
message reported by me yesterday.
At one point in the installation I get the message: "The
file /mnt/source/RedHat/RPMS/psmisc-20.2 i386.rpm cannot be opened. This is
due to a missing file, a bad package, or bad media. Press <return> to try
again". I pressed return and it continued to install for a while.
All 3 installation CDs pass. I have even tried the installation with a second
set of CDs created from different ISO images. As a hardware test, I
successfully installed Engarde Linux on the machine. The Bug Report I listed at
the top of the thread doesnt seem to indicate a media failure. It seems to be
an issue of dismounting a device. I have replaced the CDROM drive twice and I
still get the same result. (note that I have also attempted the installation on
two new computers consisting of the identical hardware. (new hardware)
I dont get a message in the bug trace that says it cant open a file and I dont
get an option to continue "try again". It simpley gets to the end on the
install (last package) and the Anaconda crash/bug appears telling me to copy it
to a diskette and report it to Bugzilla. If I just click OK, it reboots and
*** Bug 74146 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
If you have purchased this from Red Hat you should contact Red Hat Customer
service and let them know your media is not working.
This error is related to read errors occurring during installation. You may have
better luck trying a hard drive based install if this problem continues.
