Installing methods


I am having a lot of trouble installing Fedora Core 55 from cd. It keeps stopping at 'Glibc'

What other ways can I install it?
- hopefully not involving downloading another 3GB. (I'm getting awefully close to the 10GB limit and the months not over yet.)

Any help would be Greatly appreciated.

I have had this problem a few times, but it was with Ubuntu and Debian.

Try partitioning your drives as a different file system. I did that, and the error i was getting with Ubuntu dissapeared

Also try running a disk scan *fsck*. This is like MS;s chkdsk. if the instalation comes across a bad part of the drive, it can mess up

try minimal install first. checkout any packages thats giving the problem (glibc) when you chose packages to install.
