fsck errors prevent F17 install?

Hi,

I can't install F17 from the livecd as part way through it fails with an fsck error and forces a reboot. I reported it here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=823140

Wondering if anyone else has the same issue? F16 installs fine on the same computer.

There are a couple of threads with similar issues with F16 but there doesn't seem to have been a clear resolution.

Any ideas?

thanks
M.

Have you tried installing F16, then following up with a "yum install preupgrade" to upgrade to F17?

Re: fsck errors prevent F17 install?

this also happens when BIOS time is far different from OS time. Make sure the time of both is correct.

Please e2fsck your file systems before you try to install

Verify the F17 image and then try to burn it to a real cd or dvd or at least use a different usb drive, because there are a lot of read errors on the livecd (loop3) device

[ 605.747868] Buffer I/O error on device loop3, logical block 332992
Installation fails, because the journal has suddenly disappeared

Quote:
[ 608.543182] JBD2: no valid journal superblock found

Btw is this an encrypted file system or why does it keep saying... ?

Maybe you should check your memory with Memtest86+?

Thanks for the hints. A combination of fsck-ing the data disk and using a different usb key did the trick.
