Have you tested your install media?

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-02-26 15:35:26 UTC
Yup, CDs 1 to 3 tested at begining of install.  All passed, but I'm getting 
hold of a new set of RH disks to retest.  This error has not reoccured, but 
install still not succesful, at this point, all attempts progress for a while 
and I am eventually greeted by something like package XXXX not found and reboot.

Is it possible that my CDs (burnt from image) are damaged/corrupted even if 
they pass the media test?

STOP PRESS... as I was typing this e-mail, I finally succeded in reinstalling 
RH8.0 (graphical interface; install ALL packages).  After tons of crazy 
attempts (including attempting to install a new BIOS and having to reinstall 
the original BIOS) it worked.  The only thing I can think of which was 
different with the succesful install was that I changed a BIOS setting "Primary 
Graphics Adapter" from PCI to AGP (my card is an AGP card).  As I said, I never 
reproduced the bug reported here, so the two events may be unconnected.

I have no idea if this is what made the install work, or simply if I was lucky 
and the CD were read properly on that run, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Probably just weirdo cd read problems.  We continue to improve the handling of
those cases for every release.
