Fedora Installation :: Unable To Install 10 - Media Does Not Contain It
Jan 23, 2009
I have downloaded the Fedora 10 i386 ISO from fedora and created a DVD with Nero. On boot the machine starts to Install, carries out a media check but at the next stage comecs up with an error that the media does not contain fedora 10
While I was trying to install vlc media player in red hat. I got the following error message: Unable to retrieve software information. This could be caused by not having a network connection available.
I don't have the greatest network connection so say I install F12 and want to go back and install some stuff I missed first time. It seems that if I use add/remove software that it goes to the repos to download the packages, kind of annoying as I have them on disc. Is there any way to add software from the install discs after the install?
Just to reiterate on the title, the installation of Fedora 10 i386 (DVD) on a 32bit PC. Is failing on me after the media check (whether or not I do it), so not even making it to the language selection. Currently running a nvidia AGP video card was previously using an ati PCI card but swapping has done little to help.
The only argument that lets me passed this point is noprobe, which then fails a bit later as it can't pick up the install media. I've also tried a live CD which seems to be a bit hit and miss as to whether or not it even loads. It then either fails to even let me run the install to HDD or it comes up some error about failures in python code (Don't have the exact error as the last few times haven't even booted). Below is a couple of errors I get from the standard installer
Can I do a network install using a USB as the boot media. I couldn't find the steps in the long installation help. It explains how to make a livecd boot USB drive but nothing for USB. Please make it clear with exact steps. [URL] says that I have to copy diskboot.img from /Images in install cd but there is no such file. There is a install.img should that be used instead.
I live in a country where 1Mbit broadband is a premium service for large businesses. I am paying a little over $40 a month for a 128k connection with monthly capping. I want to download Fedora but the download is just huge for my connection, especially as it is used for work 14 hours a day. I have attempted the LiveCD and got the 'ext4 cannot be used for boot' error. I also have several other specialised distros on this machine and it's going to be a pain inserting a new boot partition just for Fedora.
Like it is possible with Slackware, can I just download the first CD of the Fedora 11 set and get a minimal install from this or does Fedora need the whole set of disks? Is there a simple enough net install option that I could use instead? I can't understand why they can't just release something like Ubuntu's alternate install CD.
after the latest 157mb of updates i have made on fedora 12 i cant mount any media (CD/DVD/USB etc). I keep getting this error "Failed to execute child process "gnome-mount" (No such file or directory)"
I just installed Fedora 14 (running KDE) on my HP DV6Z-SE. It came pre-packaged with Windows 7 and I am running a dual-boot (I kept Windows for gaming purposes). Anyway, problem is I am unable to play media sounds. I've tried playing my music (all OGG Vorbis) on both DragonPlayer and VLC, to no avail. When I go to Phonon, I have two options for prefered devices, "Redwood HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 5600 Series] Digital Stereo (HDMI)" and "Internal Audio Analog Stereo".
When I test them, the Radeon one never plays sound, while the Internal Audio plays the test sound sometimes (rarely). I tried moving the latter up the preference order, but it changed nothing.
install vxl-1.11 using cmake and am getting various problems like Avi File NOT found and many more files Dart,ECW,DC1394,MPEG include dir,Xerces bxml are not found. install vxl...and i would like to know what are they dependency packages required to be installed for vxl....
Hi, I attempt to install f10 via dvd. I am asked about my language and keyboard. When I move on from here I get a message. the fedora disk was not found in any of your cdrom drivesI toddle off to my laptop and the install works fine My computer has 2 drives - CD & DVD. Does this message indicate that the computer is only looking at the CD drive. I guess I need to add some options to the install command.
i have recently got a system assembled with the following configuration
intel g31 mainboard intel core2duo 2.8 proc. 4 gb ram 1 gb ati radeon hd4650 pci xpress card 160 gb harddrive with win-xp pro
i have been trying to install fedora 10 since last week but i am not able to run it in gui mode the anaconda installer tells me failed to load in gui mode and running in text mode only. i am new to fedora and am next to unknown. what should be done to get the fedora running on me computer
During installation of fedora 10 i depare with a issue that requires internet connection to proceed the installation. since i don't have a internet connection in eth0 just have one in wlan0 that is not detected by the configuration i didi not could install the fedora 10. What was my mistake, i download the Fedora-10-i386-netinst.iso to boot. Should i download another image to boot.
Last week I put together a new build:Asus p6t deluxe v2, i7 920, etc etc And installed Win7 RC which worked perfectly, however for the past couple days I've been trying to install Fedora but it seems to never work. The F11 Full disk cannot load anaconda during install, but still manages to install, however the installation cannot boot. The live disk loads, but then a black screen with eth0 and eth1 link is down pops up. So I tried other dists, Ubuntu 8.04 cannot boot, 9.04 boots and installs, but after reboot doesnt work. Anyone got any ideas as to why I cannot install Linux. Also in Win7, I cannot install Fedora as a VM. It just goes to 100% load while booting and such.
Just installed a fresh copy of F10. After install, when I boot It goes through a screen where it shows 3 bars loading. Once the last bar (white) is finished, and fedora 10 becomes white, nothing happens. If i press any key, it will give me a msg saying something along the lines of "reading contents of drive vol000 this make take a while". I rebooted after 2 hours. When i came back, I waited 8 hours.
Actually I found a discussion on this topic. But my problem a bit different from the discussion made over there...The major discussion in that topic is related to the Graphics Issue. But my problem is with the CPU(as my machine says so).... I am posting my screenshot herewith. Please take some time to review it. This would be grateful.
Actually the error says: "This Kernel requires an x86-64 CPU. but only detected i686 CPU. Unable to Boot - please use a kernel appropriate for ur CPU." What does this mean?? My machine has Intel Core 2 Duo t6600 processor. Is Virtualization Playing a role in this issue...??
I want to install Fedora 15 on my asus eeepc 1015pw I have borrowed an external dvd driver and burned a x86-64 version Fedora 15 dvd but after I formatted the partitions, the installation program ask for network connection and it is failed to deploy the network card... so I been force to quit the installation.... I also try to config the grub by adding the "linux askmethod" but it is seems that external deriver is not in the options...
I'm trying to install Fedora 15 on my Lenovo S10-2 netbook, using a USB drive I created with LiveUSB-creator, as suggested. The creation of the USB drive works fine, but when I try to boot from it on the Lenovo, I get cryptic error messages :ERROR : idle with IF=0 -- and then some misc. error codes.I have no idea what this means or how to progress from here
Tried on two computers, one laptop, one desktop. Downloaded DVD iso image and burned to DVD. Booted from CD and boot loader appears, and started count down. After the count down finished, nothing happen. Then I downloaded the netinstall image and repeat the procedure but with exact same result, nothing happened after the count down.I tested the download iso by installing it to a VMware VM, and installation completed. I don't even know where to start trouble shooting The only thing common between the two machine is the Nvidia graphic chip.
I was recently given an old laptop that runs Windows XP. Obviously, I want to put Ubuntu on it instead. However, the laptop is so old that it does not have a working USB connection; nor does it have a CD tray. I am aware of using Wubi to install an Ubuntu system within Windows, but I was wondering if there were any ways to install a clean Ubuntu system right onto the hard drive, without Windows being required. Or, perhaps, does Wubi have some feature to allow full-drive installation?
I am trying to upgrade RH9 to F10. I have downloaded dvd iso image i386. The SHA1 integrity check passes. The installer fails media check due to "errors". I did an independent verification of the DVD and zero errors found. Download was from Fedora's own torrent, so files should be verified anyway. If I bypass the media check I get the message : Running anaconda 184.108.40.206 the Fedora system installer - please wait.....
im having problems finalizing the installation of fedora 10 on a new ASUS P5E-VM that uses Intel G35 chipset.
1. i think fedora did not recognize the video driver since all the installation was in text mode and i cannot use "init 5" to load a UI
2. i tried to find some drivers (if any1 can recommend a rpm that i can download i will apprichiate it very much) but could not transfer them to the fedora since i could not mount any USB disk on key in the linux i tried using: mount -t vfat /mnt/usb (after mkdir /mnt/usb)
3. i tried to burn the driver but then could not access the dvd...
4. no internet connection yet... but thats because i cannot access my network drives that are on the USB key as well...
I tried to install Fedora 13 on X201 for a dual boot with Windows. Since there is no CD/DVD ROM on my laptop, I created a new logic partition and put the DVD iso image file of Fedora 13 on this partition. I also extracted the isolinux and image directories out of the DVD image and put it in the partition. I used grub for dos to try to boot to the installation. Here is the command I typed in grub console (For whatever reason, it did not recognize my menu.lst).
and then boot. The booting process went well until it reached "waiting for hardware to initialize", and then the screen turned black. I thought this happened because Fedora could not recognized (X201 has an integrated Intel HD Graphics adapter). So I tried adding different options to the line kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz , such as "kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz text", or "kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz xdriver=vesa nomodeset", and it still did not solve the problem.
I've recent begun to want to create a spin of Fedora for my high school to offer as an alternative to Mac OS X and Windows. My first attempt with any distro was to try and use Suse Studio, however nothing with packages that I downloaded myself would successfully compile. I then thought that I might try and use some sort of local program do create it with and tried Revisor, however when I made Live Media, Xorg wouldn't start and when I made DVD Install Media the kernel would kernel panic every time on boot.
Is there anyway to solve the problem with Revisor or are there any alternatives?
I have also tried using Ubuntu with the Ubuntu Customization Kit however that didn't work either considering I have to have it in a virtual machine.
