I am upgrading to RH 7.0. When the installer get to the point of "choose
cdrom or hard disk install", I get the error, "can't find redhat cdrom".
However, I booted from the redhat 7.0 cdrom. Any thoughts on what is
going on here? COuld I have downloaded a bad iso image?

Do you have mutliple IDE CDRoms....???? I knwo that seems like a stupid
question, but if you downloaded the iso and burnt it to CD, then you most
likely have a CDROM and a CD-Writer. If they are both internal, then try
switching the CD to the other drive.......

Na... I burned the two cds  (disk 1 sio and disk 2 iso) on another machine.
I just have a cdrom on the machine I'm trying to install onto. .. I'm
booting from the cd and get a fair way into the install (pick english, us
key board etc..) but when it's time to get the image off the cd, the
installer replies, "can't find rehat cd"

Maybe something went wrong while downloading or burning the CD??  (it's
the only thing that comes to mind...)

I too have an adaptec scsi controller aic 7880 (me thinks), I figured it
would be fine when I saw the installer say, "loading AIC 7xxx driver".
Perhaps there is a driver problem?

RH 7.0 upgrade trouble

FWIW, I am in exactly same situation.

Also, my though was that it was a dud image - though I can mount it on
my other linux box and it looks ok there (i.e. has the usual file
structure etc).

System that I am trying to install it on boots fine into RH 6.2 and
installs all the way without trouble.  It's a AMD K2-200, 128 MB RAM,
6GB HD (Master 1st IDE) and one CD-ROM (Master 2nd IDE).  The
system also has a PCI network card and a SB Vibra. No SCSI controllers.

I downloaded the images from www.linuxiso.org.

I had the same problem with the RedHat 7.0 iso image.  Upon further
investigation, I found that I could mount the burned cd on an existing
linux box, the directory structure appeared correct, but many of the
files (including ALL of the rpms) appeared to be unreadable.  I thought
that there was a problem in downloading or burning the cd, but now I'm
not sure.  I downloaded the images several times, and I couldn't get the
md5 checksums to match those provided by RedHat.  Could there be a
problem with the images themselves?

Did you check the md5sum on the image and on the burned CDROM against
the results in the md5sum file that should have come with the source?

I can see the md5sums file from the mirror where I got the iso images. But
just what are md5sums and how do you check the burned image in the cd
against the source? i.e. where are they on the burned cd?

Thanks,

Kirk

md5sum is a checksum.  A checksum is a sum generated by some smart
mathematics done on a file.  If the file changes in any way so does the
checksum. Like that you can see if the file image is as it is suppose
to be.

You need to do it before you burn the CD.  Go to the directory where
you stored the image and do: (assuming file.iso is the name of the
image)

md5sum file.iso

Then wait a moment while the sum is calculated; takes a few minutes for
a 650MB CD image. This output a string like

3ff55b942500c8cbb876d4957f17590c  file.iso

Where you found the file there are usually also a MD5SUMS file. In that
you will find a line like the above for each file.  Now you simply
control the value they have with the value you just generated.

No match = problem.

No I didn't, never had any reasons to do that before. Though I should
have... :-)

I can see several reasons:

1.      Are the sizes of the iso files correct? I have:

        -rw-r--r--   1 root     ftp      678035456 Sep 26 19:32
7.0-i386-SRPMS.iso
        -rw-r--r--   1 root     ftp      670564352 Sep 26 16:00
7.0-i386-disc1.iso
        -rw-r--r--   1 root     ftp      676231168 Sep 26 16:01
7.0-i386-disc2.iso
        -rw-r--r--   1 root     ftp      650471424 Sep 26 19:25
7.0-i386-docs-8bit.iso
        -rw-r--r--   1 root     ftp      614799360 Sep 26 16:02
7.0-i386-powertools.iso

2.      Do you get the same, but incorrect, md5sum after each download?

3.      Have you downloaded the file in ASCII mode instead of BINARY?

4.      Maybe the iso file wasn't up-to-date (i.e. not fully downloaded) on
        the mirror you've downloaded from? When I looked for the iso files, I
found
        places where the files weren't completed yet.

I downloaded the files in binary mode, the reported file sizes matched
yours, and I got the same, but incorrect md5sum after each download.  I
was downloading the images from a server here at Penn State, and it
turns out that there was some kind of problem with the FTP server
configuration (not sure exactly what the problem was) that was causing
the problems.  It was fixed overnight, and I am currently burning
(hopefully) correct versions of the iso images.

Thanks for the suggestions,

   look on the cd you burned and see if there is a file called rr_moved.
if you find it then the problem is the way you burned them.
   if you burn the images again make sure that whatever cdwrite software
you use has a doa (disk at once) mode and use that.
   hope this helps
