Description roger 1999-11-03 23:49:28 UTC
filesystem-1.3.5-1.noarch.rpm as provided on the cdrom with
Linux 6.1 can't be installed; the error message is

unpacking of archive failed on file /mnt/cdrom:
cpio: chown failed - Read-only file system

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-11-04 16:39:59 UTC
Mount the cd somewhere else; I can't think of any other way
to work around this....
