View Full Version : Can't install packages from install CD

I'm trying to add some packages to my system with the install CDs. The install CDs, all three, worked fine for the install.

I can also mount the discs, and do directory listings, install RPMs manually via rpm -i *.

The problem is that when I try to run add/remove programs, when it goes to install the packages it errors and says that it is exiting.

These are the types of errors I'm getting in /var/log/messages:

May 11 18:39:45 dell7000 kernel: hdc: packet command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
May 11 18:39:45 dell7000 kernel: hdc: packet command error: error=0x50

May 11 18:39:45 dell7000 kernel: UDF-fs: No VRS found

I've tried "finalzing" the disc and got the same errors.

I'm using Nero 6 to burn on Windows XP. I'm buring at 52x, which, now that I think about it, could be the problem. I will try to burn slower and report back. But in the mean time, does anyone else have any ideas?

can you attach your /boot/grub/grub.conf??
i think it might be a problem with ide-scsi or something
