I am trying to setup Oracle Enterprise Linux on VM Server. After downloading and burning the OS Cds for EL 5.5 32bit I set aside a hard drive, partitioned it and installed EL. Worked great. Then I downloaded VM Server 2.0.0 and installed it. When I got to the point of installing the OS on the VM, however, it complaints about a missing file on the second CD. Fine, I think, redownload and reburn. Same thing. Ok, maybe download a different EL version, so I got 5.4. The only thing that changed was the name of the file that cannot be read. It reads now:
"The file xsane-.991.ei5.i386.rpm cannot be opened. This is due to a missing file, a corrupt package or corrupt media. Please verify your installation source."
I researched various sites and came across this one: http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/coasterless.htm
I followed the instructions,downloaded again and burned another CD using the command
cdrecord dev=0,0,0 speed=10 padsize=63s -pad -dao -v -eject myimage.iso
Worked great except that it still shows the same error message. I am running out of ideas at this point aside from working my way down on the Oracle Enterprise list.
Any ideas what else may do the trick?
