Description salil Kulkarni 2003-01-03 00:34:21 UTC
Description of problem:
While installing Red Hat Linux 8.0 on my system, anaconda consistently aborts 
the installation process after giving the following error message:

"There was an error installing perl-5.8.0-55. This can indicate media failure, 
lack of disk space, and/or hardware problems. This is a fatal error and your 
install will be aborted. Please verify your media and try your install again."

I have checked the media using: "linux mediacheck", and all CD's passed the 

Disk space should not be a problem because I Choose default installation(about 
1.6GB), and my HD space is 3.0 GB.

It would be great if someone can suggest a solution because I am struggling 
with this installtion for more about 2 weeks now.

Thank You
Salil Kulkarni

You need to submit the traceback generated by Anaconda before further analysis
can be made.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2003-01-03 14:58:03 UTC
This error occurs because of a read error from the CD.  The mediacheck is not
100% guaranteed to find all media errors.
