Description of problem:
First: I have verified all media on with two separate machines/CD-drives.

I went to upgrade my Dell Latitude C800 laptop from 7.3 (up2date as of ~week
to 8.0.  Using the graphical installer, I opted to customize packages during the
and checked some more packages.  It came back with the old "you need these to
satisifiy dependencies" which I agreed to.  Then it started upgrading/installing
normal.  However, eventually it froze during the install of a particular package
on disc 1 -- unfortunately I do not recall which one.

Since the failure install stalls during "Finding packages to upgrade" in either
text install or graphical install.

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

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  Sucessful upgrade from 7.3 to 8.0

Comment 2 bil kleb 2002-10-04 20:20:36 UTC
upgrade.log.syslog is empty

After booting the now-crippled 7.3 system neither KDE nor Gnome work.

KDE gives me a couple dialog boxes which say,

 Couldn't start kdeinit. Check your installation.
 Couldn't start kmserver. Check your installation.

and exits after I hit the "okay" buttons.

Gnome starts after a lengthy pause during initialization w/o a window manager.

This sounds like a problem reading the media.
