Description of problem:
exception ocurred during installation of Red Hat Linux 8 IOError:[Errno 5} Input/output error
during installation of package flex-2.5.4a-26
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
start installtion again
Steps to Reproduce:
Have you checked you media (see bug 75008)?
The behavior described above happened three times in a row. That is why we
reported it as a bug.
However, a fourth try a few hours later, while demonstrating it to someone else,
the exception did not occur and the installation ran to completion successfully
Michael F. (see comment above) may have been right that it was media problem,
possibly marginal. In any event, we have not been able to reproduce it after
those first initial three tries. Sorry about the false alarm
