Fedora Core 4 Hard Disk Installation (Bug)
Hello Everyone,
I bet everyone is excited as I am about Fedora Core 4.

While installing any Linux, I have always prefered hard-drive installations as for me they have proved to be reliable.
My CD's always turn out to be frisbees but this matter could be discussed in another thread.

I downloaded all four ISO Images for Fedora Core 4 yesterday and started the installation.

I opted for "Hard drive" installation, specified the folder of the iso images, in this case "hda5/fedora". Anaconda installer started in text mode as usual on my Thinkpad. I opted for "Personal Workstation", Automatic Network Card Configuration and set my root password among other things.

Finally the message "Reading Package List" appears. Its only takes a few seconds and an error message appears.

"... Unexpected Error, This is more likey a bug. Copy the following .... "

I wish there was a way to show you guys how it looks like. But in brief, this message shows a bunch of code, and if I interpret it right, these were errors in fetching the packages from the ISO Images.

The message gives me a two choices: "OK" to reboot and "DEBUG"

I am at school right now (on a mac) so I don't remember everything about the error. But if any of you guys know how to solve this little problem It would be greatly appreciated.

Did you try the "DEBUG"?
Could be that you got a bad ISO, try the checksum thing.

Yes, when I press DEBUG, its takes me into command line mode.
But I dont know what to do there!!

The ISO's are fine there is no problem there...
