Shrike 2 @ 3 for RH 9


I have installed RH 9 okay.

Upon first reboot, it presented me witht the welcome screen (set up agent):

"There are a few more steps......." .

Ican choose "Additional CDs" from the menu by clicking "Instal" command button.

HTe setup agent scanned headers tec and ate up the Shrike #! CD no problem.

Then i tried CD #2, (cause i want everything installed of course).

It appears to hang, no CD or HDD light. If I click the "install' command button again it jumps intothe logon screen and then into the OS as you would expect on normal boot up.

The on Reboot, it thinks it is doing the first reboot after install and I am back at the Set up agent again ("There are a few more steps......." .)

So after a few more attempts i just forward without trying to add disks or anything else.

I try to add the packages from the CDrom while logged in, but no dice.

I have used the Add Programs utility in systems tools, it scans and shows a tick next to everything.

Questions are:

1. Do I need to install the Shrike #2 @ 3 RPMs?

2. If so, how can I?

well if you say there is a checkbox by everything in the add/remove packages screen, then what actually can you install? that to me means you have everything, unless it says next to the package something like for example 35/50 then you can click details and put checkmarks by the other things that you want if not already selected.

I was thinking the same, but what makes me wonder is that I never loaded Shrike #2 and #3.

So if all packages are installed, what is on them?

I will check out the 35/50 point and get back to you.

Hi Mowtown75

Whether or not you need to put in disks 2 or 3 depends entirely on what packages you originally selected when installing.

I think the "Additional cd's" refered to Documentation?

I also recently installed RH9 and have 3 cd's of source code. I also tryed for a day or so to find out how to get them installed but gave up on that to work on other things. I would like to know how to get the extra cd's on though.

I love Linux right now. It's like christmas and getting a big toy, but without the batteries. I can play with it but not the way I want to yet.

well look..i know when i do an isntallation, like when you pop cd into your rom and bootup your box and load the installation, i go through all 3 cd's in the if you do a custom installation and pick all the stuff you want (like what i do) then theres a good chance you'll use all three cd's if you pick the majority of the packages that guys are probably not getting asked for them, cause your doing a default setup, with minimal stuff installed....if you customized your installation to include more, then you would have probably been asked for them too...
type redhat-config-packages at the terminal to bring up a window with the packages installed, and pick whatever else you want that already isn't selected...this will probably prompt you to insert cd 2 or 3 or even both, or you can browse the cd's manually and double click whatever packages are of interest to you...

When you first rebooted after installing and it asked if you want to install additional CD's I'm pretty sure it was referring to the other three CD's that you can download not the basic three you need.
What's on them I don't know as I've never downloaded them, probably source and documentation but nothing essential.

If you went through the full setup routine, then through all the blah, blah without selecting install additional CD's everything would have been cool, what's gone wrong I don't know, but if you've got the first 3 CD's that's all you need and could/should have just installed programs from them after you were in your desktop or at the shell after fully booting.

Looks to me you've installed everything that you selected during setup then tried to put the same disks again on first boot when there was no need.

Thank you everyone, I belive I have one of three answers;
1. I have all packages loaded; it did take shrike-SRPMS-disc1.iso, when I clicked on install packages, so I think shrike-SRPMS-disc2.iso and shrike-SRPMS-disc3.iso are not related to application packages.

2. I think Skyline is on the right track, maybe 2 and 3 are documentation. However that is lot of HTML

3. Whatever they are, they are viewable in CDROM, but they do not execute when I double click on them or enter the pathe and file name into the run command line.

So for now, they are a mystery, but like KOS, it will not prevent me from playing sme more.

If anyone can help me with Kppp, please see my other post; "ISP Login Fails"

Thanks Guys!!

To my knowledge there are 6 disks

Hello all-
I don't have Shrike installed, yet, since there seems to be some problem with my CD burning software (on Windows)

There are 9 disks for full blown all-you-can-get Shrike
3 ISO's for install
3 ISO's for SRC RPMs
3 ISO's for (xtra) Documentation

Src code: ok I don't do, just a thought:

Did you ever try manually opening the code within a development window (your.flavor.IDE)?

..or at least add the option to your interface for "open with application" and select the src file you want to use..even set your IDE as the default app. for handling src files..
