I've been trying to install RHEL WS 4 on a x86 machine. I downloaded the four binary iso files and burned them to discs. I'm able to boot off of the first disc but when I try and run the linux installer in GUI mode it crashes. So, I've been running the installer via the text mode and I'm able to get much farther. However, during the installation I get the following error:
There was an error installing <package>. 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 nad try your install again.
I have tried multiple cds and all the ones I've burned a 4 speed have passed the media check. I thought perhaps the install was choking because of not enough room, but I partitioned the /usr partition to be 6GB and I still got the error. Also, the <package> that the installer chokes on isn't always the same. It's been either glibc-common (which occurs very early in the install) or oopenoffice.org-i18n (which occurs around the middle). I tried not installing Open Office and then I got farther along (onto binary disc 3) but I still got the same error, just with a different package. Does anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong here? Please let me know if I can give any information that might help. Thank you very much.
