Description Tom Georgoulias 2002-11-14 16:17:49 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020827

Description of problem:
Installer has unhandled exception error during installation from disc 1,
openjade package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from CDROM
2. Begin workstation installation

Actual Results:  All configuration settings were accepted, disk partition
formatted properly, but install failed during openjade package install.

Expected Results:  Install should complete normally.

Additional info:

1.  The disc set I am using is an Official Red Hat Linux disc set which came in
my boxed set.  I have used these discs to install *many* systems successfully in
the past.

2. Linux mediacheck passed, as expected.

3. This failure occurs regardless of whether or not I do a bad block check
during partition formating.

4.  I have tried two different CD ROM drives from different manufacturers,
neither made a difference.

5.  Attempting to do a text install resulted in the same thing.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-11-14 22:23:17 UTC
This error occurs due to bad reads from the CD drive. These reads appear to be
intermittant in some cases.  I would recommend you ask for a replacement set of CDs.
