Missing file in rc-14.02.2013-i686 iso?? [Solved]

Tried iso twice each on 3 machines in 5 optical drives.
Same result in all cases.

Steps taken:
verified md5sum of downloaded iso
burned twice at slowest speed possible- once on cd-rw; once on cdr
verified checksum after burn

Boot menu comes up fine.
Using default option in menu results in panic and this:

/run/archiso/bootmnt/arch/aitab file does not exist
you can try to fix manually, log out when you are finished
sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

Since I've never had trouble with your isos before it is probably some stupid error/missed step I did/didn't do but figured you wanted some feedback anyway. :-)

I think we need a more specific "RC/Testing/..." iso feedback sub-forum, especially at the rate that they're pumping out those Live "RC"'s.
?

@scjet please read my other post answering your concerns.

I will double check md5sums over the weekend, double check i686 is ok.

You're a man on a mission huh. smile

You're idea would probably cut down on RC feedback being scattered all over the sub forums.
Improved descriptions of forae probably wouldn't be a bad idea either.

I placed my post in feedback for two basic reasons:
1) Mr. Green mentions feedback so seems logical place to put it
2)Based on subforum descriptions, Archbang installer/.iso would seem to me to be more for developer discussions

BTW, how is this related to the OP's- mine- issues? wink
other than post being seen by right people in timely manner
of course

Odd.
Redownloaded the iso, verified,burned, verified and tried again.
This time got the above error in one drive but but not in the other one.
Both gave the appearance of a kernel panic but I got distracted for a  bit when booting from second optical drive.
When I came back I was at a prompt.
Tried startx and things worked.
Still working on the install.

I might change conky in rc releases to state the release [ie date] this would mean. I just tested i686 version on my laptop without a problem [usb booting].

Feedback is always welcome provided it generates possible improvements for the future.

Re: Missing file in rc-14.02.2013-i686 iso?? [Solved]

Well the install was a no go.
Tried twice both time ending in a kernel panic after sitting at 94% for a long time.
First time I came back to a screen full of lines from abinstall to the effect of

line xxx   command not found
line xxx   file not found

Sorry couldn't be more specific with errors but lines were moving too fast to read well before it kernel panicked.

Second time it hung at 94% then went straight to kernel panic.

Yes I am aware of the reason for the hang towards the end of the install as it has been mentioned repeatedly here.

This is on a older frankenbox that was running Arch great 2yrs ago when I put it away.
Specs:
Shuttle AN51R MB
1.8Ghz AMD Sempron
2G Ram
Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 <--- possible reason for some of the issues?

at that stage of the install, the graphics card isn't even in play, it's basically copying files over.  It sounds to me like a corrupt image or there's not enough space to copy the files.

I'm setting up this box as a triple boot demo system for a neighbor kid to learn on.
sda1 == /boot
sda5 == /root <-- Archbang hopefully
sda6 == /home <-- Archbang
sda7 == /root <--LMDE (installed)
sda8 == /root <-- Sabayon
sdb* == data storage


After some more futzing around this morning, I noticed some issues that make me think hard drive(s) is/are getting flaky else system was left in too much of a mess by yesterdays muckin about. Couldn't get any liveCD to work until I completely powered down by disconnecting from the mains and checked cabling. After that things worked.
Haven't tried to install again yet.

Thanks for your time
much appreciated

Success!!
Now to determine the health of the hard drives.
Of course a failing hard drive would be a good lesson for the kid.
I know I didn't do back ups properly til losing 80G of data- lesson I won't soon forget.

Thanks again.
Now should I mark this thread as "solved" or do you just want to remove it as it's not much help to others.

Dying drives tend to get very noisy.

I will move topic to a different forum as I feel it is not an ArchBang issue and will mark thread solved

Of the 3 drives I've had die on me only one made any appreciable racket.
Others died silently and without warning.

Sorry for wasting your time and thanks again.
