Description gadown 1999-04-29 04:48:35 UTC
I created a CD (Joliet Level 3) of RH 6.0 for i386.
When I try to install RH after it asks for the CD I get
the following:

error in exec of second stage loader :-(
  error: No such file or directory

I have confirmed that all required files are on the CD
and in the proper location  .
Note: This problem also occurred for 5.2 but the work around
was to force loading the supplemental disk

Comment 1 gadown 1999-04-29 06:02:59 UTC
I looked over the source code for the boot disk and noticed the
following code in earlymethods.c in misc/src/install:
if ((rc = loadFilesystem("isofs", "iso9660", dl))) return rc;
	rc = doMount(cddev, "/tmp/rhimage", "iso9660", 1, 0);

So it looks your expecting a RockRidge or El Torito filesystem.
I guess the resolution to my problem is create RockRidge CD rather
than a Joliet CD.
