[TriLUG] Big problems with a Red Hat 7.2 -> 7.3 upgrade
Wed, 19 Jun 2002 22:01:57 +0500
Back in May, I pulled the Red Hat 7.3 ISOs off of the LUGs mirror. I finally
had the time to try the upgrade today.
I made it through to the package install. The installer was happily copying
packages to my machine when it got to kdebase. It complained that I was out
of disk space (I appear to have plenty still), have bad media, or encountered
a hardware failure.
Now my system is in a half-upgraded state. The first CD is possibly a faulty
burn (mounts fine, how else would I check it?). I did run md5sum to check
the ISO images before burning CDs. I can't seem to access the CD drive now.
Any suggestions? How do I procede? Could it be a hard disk problem? How
would I tell? I've never hit an install problem like this, and I'm not sure
how to proceed.
I do have some options here. I have two other machines in the house (neither
with a ton of disk space). I also still have the ISO images on the hard
drive of the machine that's now half-upgraded. Any help is greatly
