Fedora Core 2 Install failing during package install
I'm trying to upgrade an RH9 box to Fedora Core 2. The machine is a PII/450, 384MB RAM, ATI Radeon 7000 video card. I'm not having a lot of luck. Here is the process I've gone through:
---I download the iso's and burned them to CD. The mediacheck crashes whenever I try to run it on the disks, but I could use mediacheck from my RH9 disks and all of the FC2 disks passed.
---I booted disk one and started the install. Everything was going fine. It detected my video card, monitor, and mouse correctly and loaded the graphical install manager.
---I picked the relevant language options and then the upgrade option. The installer checked packages/dependencies and then started copying packages. It was going along just fine and then it froze and crashed (I believe it was working on the open office shared libraries package).
---On the ctrl+Alt+F1 screen it shows it detected monitor,mouse etc and that the X server fired up ok. After the crash it says "install exited abnormally."
On the ctrl+Alt+F3 screen the last couple of lines are:
*switching from iso to i2 for openoffice.org-libs-1.1.1-4.i386
*isys.py:mount()- going to mount /tmp/hdb on /mnt/source
In the syslog the call trace has a bunch of references to isofs and mount.
---The install was partially successful. When I boot to the hd now, GRUB reports FC2 instead of RH9. Also, the Xserver has been screwed up and I can only get things to boot into text mode. My /home directories are still there, but a lot of other system related things seem pretty messed up. Also, when I have tried to install again, it only says I need disk 2,3, and 4 now (the first time it said I needed all 4)I
----I have repeated this process using the text installer and got the same results.
----I saw some information about logitech mice causing issues during install so I disconnected my logitech trackball and replaced it with an MS intellimouse (PS/2). This didn't change anything. Also, the error I get happens at a different place from where most people reported this issue.
