i am new in linux and decided to install slackware. i've downloaded the 5cd isos and cheksums were ok. when i started install of first cd, at the beginning every thing was ok, but when it started to install the "AP" pakets immediatelly gave an error and the installation stopped. till that point all was ok.
i burned 2 cds with 2 different softwares (under xp) but got the same error in the same point. the media on i'm writing is cheap, but no reason to give exactly the same error.
can the cheksum be ok but still contain an error?
any suggestions? download again cd nr 1? thank u
well after loading the first part of kernel, when it come to instal package series "ap" immediatelly stops installing and gives this error line: /var/log/mount/slackware/ap/tagfile: Input/output error and after a few minutes a message says that if the part i'm installing is required then system wont work fine........i've burned at 4x.
.....this is getting nasty, i downloaded another cd1 distro from another served and it's giving me tha same error......now i am lost, can't understand the problem.......differnt distro, new CD, the install lounch but then stops when it's time to install the "ap" modules....why???
