Description of problem:
The RHL9 ISO 2 media check fails everytime
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
binary disk 2 iso
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Downloaded RHL9 ISO 2 from RHN
2.Run the "md5sum" to check the checksum, passed.
3.Burn onto the CD. Do media check, but it can not pass.
4.I did the step 2 and step 3 many itmes, the result is same.
Actual Results: The media check fails everytime
Expected Results: Media check pass.
I have confirmed as of yesterday that all three binary ISOs downloaded from the
RHN website do pass mediacheck when burned to disc. Can you try burning at half
of the maximum speed of your CD recorder to see if that helps?
I also attempted to burn the CD at 4x, the slowest speed my
system supports and had the same failure. The specific problem appears to
be the xpdf-2.01-8. The message is that the installer cannot open this
package. It says that the error is due to a missing file or a corrupt
package. This is the exact same error on all four CD #2 that I have
just tried the revolutionary approach of installing it on another machine,
and guess what? CD 2 does pass. Must be something funky with the CD-ROM
drive in my other machine. Don't know why it consistently had a problem
with CD2 and died in the same spot each time on each copy of CD 2 that I
burned, but there it is.
I am also having this problem, with pretty much the exact same symptoms. The
install fails on the second CD starting with xpdf. I tried installing a second
time without xpdf, but then it just failed on the next package, xsane.
I will try installing with another drive, but I just thought I would let you
know that he isn't the only person seeing this behavior.
