Is the problem related to bug 7833 where the installer hangs at package 3 when installing on a sparc ?

SAME EXACT PROBLEM... I'm on a sparc5 152MB Ram 2 internal 1gb drives External Sun CD (xm-5401tasun4xcd). no matter how i try to install this software it fails and cannot find shadow- utils.19990827-2.sparc.rpm I bought this because it was supposed to run on a sparc5, yet it cannot install on it?!? My system is now completely dead and unuseable. Would like a resolution asap please.

Ok. I was told the problem may be bad media. It's not. More likely it is a timing issue either in the SUN hardware or with the linux boot drivers. I found a work-around, although this was not offered to me as a possibility when I called RedHat support (i was told to request a replacement cd). If you have another system available you can load via NFS. Get the boot process started on the sparc5 with the local CD and specify NFS as the installation type. Then just before telling the installer where to NFS from, walk the CD over to the NFS box, mount & export it, and then continue the install on the sparc5.

By any chance are these problems related to the issue discussed in bug #7494 about double termination??

Closing this bug due to lack of activity.
