Thread: Installation Problem

    Default Installation Problem

    When I try to install Opensuse 11.1 I get to 90% of system analysis and then it says

    Unable to create repository from URL
    'cd:///?devices=/dev/sro'

    Details:Valid metadat not found at specified URL(s)
    History
    -cant copy/var/adm/mount/AP_0x00000001/media.1/media to/var/cache/zypp/raw/repository 638IQP
    -cant provide/media.1/media:cant copy/var/adm/mount/AP_0x00000001/media.1/media to/var/cache/zypp/raw/repository 638IQP



    Any ideas on what I should do (I am quite new to this sort of stuff)

    Did you run the media check from the dvd menu before trying the install?
    Try it, it takes a while so get a brew.

    I just did the media check and it said

    Error reading section 1539776
    This CD-ROM is broken

    Does that mean I have to make another dvd

    Yes.
    But for heavens sake don't download it again if you still have the image.

    It may be when you do a check sum of .iso you have it will be ok, it's just the burn that's bad. Burn SLOW.
    ===================================

    If the .iso is corrupt:
    If you downloaded the .iso in bittorrent just force a re-check. Otherwise you can load the .iso into a torrent client - it's a little complicated, do you know how?
