Description Maciej Kycler 2002-10-17 15:36:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10; Linux)

Description of problem:
I tried to upgrade to RH 8.0 and only managed to
get half-way through disk 2.  I was performing an upgrade, but received an error about not being able to access a file dealing with a KDE3 lib. The upgrade.log in my root's directory has this:

Upgrading lm_sensors-2.6.3-2.
Upgrading kdebase-3.0.3-13.
unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/share/config/kdm: cpio: rename failed - Is a directory

The install said I should "check my media" and try again.
I've checked my media before starting the upgrade process.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from 8.0 Disk 1
2. Choose "Upgrade existing system"
1. rpm -hUv kdebase-3.0.3-13.i386.rpm

Actual Results:  System promptly rebooted. I thought my system was hosed, but oddly enough, it booted into what looks like RH 8.0.  I had a new desktop (Bluecurve?) and all my services seem to be working (Apache/php, etc.).  However, I did not make it through (or even to) disc 3 of the setup.

Expected Results:  Finish installation with all disks.

your CDs seem to have problem. You should take contact to Red Hat Store, where
you have bought, to ask for new CDs.
