Description Rich Leitner 2003-05-28 14:12:29 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
Actual results:

Expected results:

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.
