Burning Fedora Core 4 ISOs [Jul. 1st, 2005|10:04 pm]
Fedora Newbies


I've decided to upgrade from Fedora Core 2 to Fedora Core 4 with the CDs after all.

I've got all of the ISOs downloaded and verified:
$ sha1sum -w -c SHA1SUM
FC4-i386-disc1.iso: OK
FC4-i386-disc2.iso: OK
FC4-i386-disc3.iso: OK
FC4-i386-disc4.iso: OK
FC4-i386-rescuecd.iso: OK
I burned all of them using the method suggested by Red Hat (linked to from the official Fedora Core download page):
# cdrecord -v -eject speed=4 dev=ATA:1,0,0 FC4-i386-disc1.iso
When I restart the machine and boot from CD, I get the option to test the media before continuing the install. All five discs (disc1 - disc4 and rescuecd) fail the media check.

Am I doing something wrong? I know it's not due to corrupt downloads, because I've tested the images against Red Hat's own sha1sum results. I used dev=ATAPI:1,0,0 for the first CD I burned, and I got this message:
Warning: Using ATA Packet interface.
Warning: The related Linux kernel interface code seems to be unmaintained.
Warning: There is absolutely NO DMA, operations thus are slow.
Is that what screwed things up? I wouldn't think so...

I have a Sony 48x/24x/48x/16x EIDE CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive. cdrecord -scanbus returned the following:
