Description Kristin 2003-04-07 19:39:25 UTC
Description of problem:
When installing Linux, it gives me the error message:
"the file /mnt/sysimage/var/temp/perl-filter-1.28-9.i386.rpm cannot be 
It says the error is due to a missing file, bad package, or bad media.  I did 
the media check and everything came out fine.  I actually have two different 
copies of the install cds (from various books I've bought) and they both crash 
at the same point.

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

How reproducible:
Almost always, I think it crashed at this point all but once, and that time it 
crashed at a slightly later point during the install.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Anaconda, Linux installation program
2. Partition, select packages, then let it begin installing on hard drive
Actual results: kills installation process due to inability to open file

Expected results: normal installation

Please attach the Anaconda traceback log file that was produced when the
installer failed.
