Problems with the Fedora installation.. Help...


In the middle of the install, I received the following notice:

"There was an error installing db4-devel-4.2.52-6. THis can indicate media failure, lack of disk space, and/or hardware problems. THis is a fatal error and your install will be aborted. Please verify your media and try your install again."

Anyone know what I can do to correct this?

Thanks,

Comptalk

Did you try what the error message said? Did the media pass the media check? Do you have plenty of disk space?

My main suspect would be bad media. If you downloaded the iso files yourself, check the md5sum of the iso file with what the site you downloaded from says it should be. If they don't match, download again. If they do match, try burning a new cd, perhaps using a different brand of cd.
