Description of problem:
I downloaded the 3 ISO's for Redhat 9 and burnt them all to CD's.
I was installing through VMWare 4 on Windows XP at first. I chose almost all
the packages and set off installing. CD 1 installed fine but part way into CD2
it came up with a corrupt package message. I tried again but removing the
package that game me the error and a different package came up (I will list
the packages at the bottom).
After a third attempt and another corrupt package I decided to redownload the
second disc from redhats FTP. I burnt this disc and got errors again. I
rebooted the virtual machine and tried the media check on the 1st and 3rd
discs and they were fine, but the 2nd disc reported errors. So I mounted the
disc 2 ISO in VMWare and tried the checker on that and it had no errors.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure that the PDF viewer is installed for X
2. Make sure the additional Sane components are installed
3. get to the second disc of the installation.
Actual Results: I got an error on the screen saying that a package had an
error and could not be installed. It said that it was probably due to a
corrupt package or damages disc.
Expected Results: Straight through the installer being able to include the
complete set of packages.
This is a problem specific to your hardware to CD media. We do not support
installation under vmware either. The dialog you see occurs when there was an
error decoding an RPM from the install media and is due to read errors from the
drive and/or media.
