any Errors while installing Mandrake


Hola,

So here is my problem. First off i am a complete noob to this so i could be doing something wrong. I have been reading that Mandrake 9.1 is a distro and is easy to install. I have a AMD 1700XP, 256MB DDR RAM, Radeon 8500, 60GB HDD with XP on it, and a 40GB HDD i am trying to put Mandrake on. I downloaded the ISOs from LinuxISO.org and burned them to disc. I changed my BIOS to boot form the CD-ROM and off i went. The machine booted fine and got its input from me, however when i chose what packages to install and hit "next" it was a completly difference story. It would install a few packages and it would get stuck on one and after a few minutes would say cannot access or find whatever package it got stuck on. It gave me a "would you like to continue, yes or no" and if i said yes it would install a few more packages and repeat the message. Can anyone tell me what i am doing wrong or could it be the images i got are corrupt? Thanks in advance.

JDeer

hi Jdeer,

Sounds like a disk/iso problem to me. I have found that Mandrake is one of the easiest to install and have never had a problem like the one you describe and have been using Mandrake for 5 years. If you are in the UK Linux Format magazine will have Mandrake 9.2 on its cover disks for December, which comes out later this week. I may same you downloading and burning your disks again

Actually i found an earlier post, and they described the exact same problem and they had to buy a new CD ROM drive... I am going to try a friend of mine's drive and see if that works.
