Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 91826
Installer crashes while installing packages, seemingly on different packageseach time
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:54:06 EDT
Description of problem: Installer crashes during gui installation. Crashes give
error message stating "missing file, bad package, or bad media". Different
installation package choices cause this identical message to appear when
installing different specific packages. Running the "media check" was
successful, the media checks out ok.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: High, I cannot install RedHat 8.0 Professional
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from CD, run GUI installer
2.Use mostly default settings (except I use "delete all partitions")
3.Wait and see which package will fail to install
The mediacheck can pass occasionally and yet once package installation starts
the reads from the CD can fail. If you look on VC4 (cntl-alt-f4) when the
failure occurs you may be able to spot a read error from the CD.
