I downloaded Fedora Core 1 yarrow and when ever I try to install either using anaconda or the text installation I get a system resources error, I have no idea how to fix this, I have 10 gigs set aside for Fedora and I know that is enough space for it.
please any help would be appreciated cuz I really want to check out Fedora.
Can you provide the details of the error that you are getting? When exactly is the error occuring, do you get to select your options for the installation (i.e. language, packages, keyboard, mounse settings, ect.)?
What type of hardware is involved (BIOS, RAM, Processor, CD-ROM)?
Do you get a chance to run the media check? If so did it go through cleanly?
Hmmmm, This may well just be a coincidence, but I have had several problems installing some Red Hat variations (RH8 and 9) on several Compaq systems (even some of the models that have been labeled with the new HP label after the buyout). As a matter of fact, it was the subject of my first posting to this board.
But it seems that the details of your problem are different. But it you should be so lucky as to have access to an external CD-Rom drive, it might be worth a few moments to see if the install will run from it.
I have started looking on google for "ran out of input data" and there are a lot of people reporting seeing this error over many different distributions, but in my quick glance it seems that most of these reports are coming after a kernel modification vice a OS installation. But it does make me curious if we would see this same error if you were to attempt to boot off of a Knoppix live CD (or some other live linux CD).
I will continue to ask around to see if any of my collages have dealt with this specific problem.
thanks again kvedaa I will try using Knoppix but I did just redownload all three Fedora cd's, maybe my media was bad, unfortunately I ran out of cd-r's so will have to wait until later today. I will post an update to tell you if this worked or if Knoppix worked.
ok I sucessfully got CollegeLinux installed but it wouldn't recognize my Linksys Instant Wireless card so I'm gonna either try a reinstall of CL or try Slackware 9.1 thanks for everyone's help and I might try Fedora later
