Anyone had problems installing RH9 on VMWare? Once it hits installing
'XPDF', console reports a load of 'attempt to access beyond end of device'
messages. I'm installing from known-good cds.
<6>attempt to access beyond end of device
<6>16:00: rw=0, want=653310, limit=653308
I doubt very much that its the CD itself as I just installed RH9 on the same
machine 2 days ago, on its own partition. I'm guessing its probably an issue
with VMWare. I've googled and all the info I can find is relating to
filesystems on a HDD and a kernel bug. There doesnt seem to be anything
specifically regarding this problem.
