So I'm loading Slack 10 to recover from the disk problems I had the other night. Every time I start the package install, I receive the above error on various packages.
I've been trolling LQ & google and have tried the following
boot with 'bare.1 ide=nodma'
redownloaded the ISOs from a separate mirror
reburnded the CDs at lowest speed & on different media (manuf.)
Run Check during format on each partition (except /usr where I'm preserving data)
Swapped CD drives
This is exasperating. I've loaded Slack on two different boxes and this is a repeat install for this box. I've never had this problem before.
I'm looking for any leads. (Could there be a problem with the public ISOs?
Micron 400MHz PII
320 MB RAM
8GB boot drive (4GB root)
40GB data drive (/usr 24GB), /var 14GB, swap)
I've been working this for 4 hours so I'm gonna crash whilst you brainstorm. And if anyone wants to fix this while I sleep - feel free
