Re: problem installing Fedora 8
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
I switched hard disks so that my attempts to install were to a 137 gigdisk that had a small msdos partition and a 30 g linux partition. This should have allowed plenty of space for an install, but I still got the
[1/1] abnormal termination of Anaconda. I played around with some of the options and found that if I specified 'noprobe' I would get further into the process. After selecting English and a US keyboard Anaconda asked where the files to install were.When I selected 'Local CD/DVD' it informed me that it couldn't find a driver for it. (This seems odd, as it was RUNNING from the CD at the time). It offered a list of drivers from which to select but there was no obvious choice, and every choice that I tried resulted in a dump.
The CD in question is a generic IDE 52x.I do have an identical CD on another linux box. Is there any utility by which I can find the driver that device is using ? If so, can I prepare a floppy with this driver to give to Anaconda ? Should this be in a standard ext3 filesystem or do I have to do something else to prepare a driver ?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
