I am trying to install Warty. The install repeatedly hangs at the "Load
installer components from CD" step with the console message:
user.info.anna: Not a directory
user.info.anna: WARNING **: bad d-i Packages file
user.info.anna: grep: /cdrom/dists/stable/Release: Not a
The Normal mode install gets stuck in a loop of this message. In Expert
mode, selecting all of the defaults, a message appears that says:
"There was a problem reading data from the CDROM. Please make sure it
is in the drive. If retrying does not work, you should check the
integrity of your CDROM."
I have tried with several different options, as suggested by the install
help, and I have checked the integrity of the CDROM. That is, I have
downloaded the iso twice, verified the md5sum of the iso, and burned to
two separate disks. No luck.
I am trying to install this on a Dell Inspiron 7500. I have never
installed a Debian-based distro before, but have never had trouble
installing Mandrake Linux over the last two years.
Thanks for any suggestions.
