Re: Newbie Help With Fedora 9 installation



Thanks Kam Leo,

I have already downloaded the DVD ISO again and verified the file with the
SHA1 checksum calculator mentioned in the Read ME file.

The CheckSum matches...But had to go leave for work..

once i get back...let me see how the installation goes.

Thanks for the links.

@ Armin,

Thanks...that is almost the same procedure i followed when i did
the Fedora 7 installation. I wanted to upgrade it to fedora 9. This is the
first time i am facing problems with installing fedora.

Thanks for replying Aldo and Armin.

Yes i am downloading from a windows system. I was downloading to a logical
drive with a FAT32 file system... I went through the documentation again..
So i guess that must be the problem.
Apparently downloading to an NTFS filesystem doesn't seem to have that
problem.
Will try that.

I just need a back up copy of the entire dvd anyway.
so i would have to download the file again.
I 've burnt that corrupted file on 2 DVDs already :)

Thanks for the help, guys.

Hello,

I downloaded a Fedora 9 i386 DVD ISO file using utorrent ,
so i
hear downloading through utorrent ensures the integrity of the file.

I burnt the image on a DVD at 4x speed and did the media check.

All is fine.

But there is another screen saying test for additional media or
something
like that.... which has two options
"TEST" and "CONTINUE"

Continue gives an error
and clicking on "TEST" gives a message saying checksum not found.

what is wrong?
The Documentation says the ISO is supposed to work...

Are you using bittorrent from a Windows PC?
There may be issues downloading ISO images larger than 2GB.

Try the instructions here and see whether you can install directly from
a fedora web site.
http://fedorasolved.org/Members/opsec/fedora-netinstall
First download the Rescue CD, which smaller size that a full DVD ISO.

Alternatively, download the CD ISO images directly from here:
http://fedora.inode.at/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/iso/

HTH, and enjoy using Fedora.

Or you can just download the livecd and install from there, it will give
you essentially the same thing, and you don't have to take your time to
download a big iso file!

What I would do for installing Fedora on my computer:
I would partition my HD and delete the partition so it leaves a free space
(not formatted).
The I would get a copy of the livecd and burn it (or put it on a USB disk)
and boot from it.
In the installation, I would choose guided partitioning.

the guided partitioning makes it quite painless :)
