I got a particularly anoying issue with the Fedora 16 installation.
I ve undertaken the following steps:
- downloaded fedora 16 (good start I know!)
- put it on a usb stick, with unetbootin
- tested the live version (found it very pleasing)
- - > but the Anaconda install keeps failing
(both 32 and 64 bit versions)
I get to the copying of files but then suddenly it fails to copy any more. And it pops up a message:
"ext4 filesystem check failure on /dev/sda4:
From what I got so far, my disks get correctly partitioned and formated (can check that before the boot device selection) then the file copy starts ....
Once the crash pops up (usually around 50%), I have no more than a few kb available on the '/' - root partition, which is formatted as around 30GB !!
If I do 'df -h' I get all kind of strange disk space numbers for that drive including negative onces (I have seen a lot in linux over the last few years, but that is a first)
I believe I tried any partitioning option from the installer about 5 times now, from full default to max simplicity (no LVM, no swap, ext3, 1 partition only, etc) and anything in between.
Why it kept me busy so long .... the first time I installed it without issues
(I crashed that install however, and on the second attempt I got this error
I however decided to throw over mint, which installed like a charm but is way slower
So I decided to go back to fedora, but I'm still stuck at the install...)
Maybe I should file a bug, but then I should get some guidance (first : is a bug report appropriate for such an issue?)
logs attached. - my system Acer Iconia W500 (tablet-netbook without keyboard but AMD-C50 cpu)
Thanks for reading, many thanks for answering.
