Fedora 8 - install error - starting anaconda install exited abnormally????
I'm trying to install a minimal install of Fedora 8 on an Ebox 2300 (Norhtec).
It boots fine from the USB DVD ROM drive and I can choose text or graphical install as normal.
Doesn't matter which option I choose, after I've chosen where my Fedora media is, I get the error
Running anaconda 188.8.131.52, the Fedora system installer - please wait .
install exited abnormally [1/1]
sending termination signals....Done
Doesn't really point to what its upset about? The media can be used in the same DVD ROM drive on other machines so I don't think its the media or drive.
Ctrl + Alt + F3
18:44:57 INFO Running anaconda script /usr/bin/anaconda

<6>device-mapper: multipath emc: version 0.0.3 loaded
Nothing really jumps out and explains whats wrong...any ideas?
I have Google'd around and found others years ago blaming the video card, but I've tried all video settings in BIOS and video=vesa on the boot command line....
Have you gone past this point with the same media on other computers ? First thing I'd suspect is an imperfect burn, or a bad iso. I think fedora offers to verify the media, have you tried that ? (Just to get the obvious villains out of the way.)
