Error Installing Packages


I have posted this in different forums and so far no one has been able to figure it out.

athlon 2100
asus a7v333
visiontek GF 4 4600 Ti
1GB OCZ PC2700 (just 512MB's now)
Western Digital 100GB Special Edition
I/O Magic 48X12X48
Sony Floppy
Mandrake Linux 9.1 Prosuit

I am pretty sure that the system hardware is compatible with linux, as I had mandrake 9.0 installed a while back.

At first I had problems with it because I had a gig of ram. I took a stick out then tried the installation.

Next it would go through the installation and partially install. It got maybe 1/6 of the way completed. When it was installing xfree86, it would freeze making me reboot. This happened about 3 times or so.

Then it gave this error for each part that was installing (opensll, ect.). However, it didn't say why it failed. It asked if I wanted to continue or cancel. Cancel would cancel the entire installation. Continue would try to install the next thing, which would also fail. No packages would install. Everyone failed.

Welcome to LQ.

What CDs are you using? Are they home burnt? Did you verify the MD5 sums?

Have you tried a different CD drive some installs are rather picky.

I have also used a madog dvd drive.

They are not home burnt. They are from www.linuxandbsd.com. The CD's seem fairly professional.

They probably are burnt and not originals. Try reburning them at a slower speed.

I can't burn them myself. All I can do is send the CD's back, which is what I am going to do.
