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:
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):
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.
