Strange problem while installing linux using kickstart using pxe
I am running into a strange problem where kickstart installation fails with Error failed to read Rpm header, This happens when installation starts formatting of disk is also completed some of the rpms installed and then suddenly installer stalls with failed to read rpm header.
I have kept kickstart and install media on same host. I have changed the install media from http/nfs/ftp just to check is there any problem with the media but no luck.
However same installation with the same kickstart file works fine when both install media and ks file is kept on another linux host.
I am using RHEL 4 ,I do checked /var/log/messages it does not give any information on the failure and this started happening recently till that i was using the same server for my linux deployment.
Note: pxe setup, boot server ,install media and ks file all are in same server.
can any one help me route cause the issue.
