Thread: Can't successfully download 11.4

  1. #1

    Default Can't successfully download 11.4

    I've tried downloading 11.4 64-bit about a dozen times, and it always failed to checksum comparison. I've tried downloading it directly using Mozilla. I've tried that from a mirror (several actually). I've tried using Download Them All to get it and is failed both the MD5 and SHA1. BTW, those fail the checksum as soon as the Download Them All window opens. I've tried bitTorrent. I've tried it on two different machines. I've tried it from linux through Mozilla and Download Them All just to be sure it's not my anti-virus or software firewall.

    What do you think is going on?

    BTW, in the process of installing a new HD on my desktop, somehow my OpenSUSE linux install has gotten corrupted (or something), so I don't have access to a linux install. Any suggestions how I can get a good download? I'm hoping I can use it to repair my existing install, and to install openSUSE on my laptop.

    Don't know why you are having download problems. You might try a mirror further away from you. You may also try the CD since it is a smaller download.

    So your current install is corrupted. But you don't say how. Please give a description of the problem(s)

    Which filesystem does your system have? If you are using BitTorrent and
    your client is worth anything at all it is verifying the checksum as you
    go along. Have you considered that your method of checking the checksum
    is invalid (broken, being run incorrectly, etc.)? Are you comparing
    against the wrong checksum? Is the checksum you've received each of the
    dozen tries the same or are they all different?

    Good luck.

    I suggest trying the NETWORK install download from here software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 11.4 as it is the smallest. Once you've got it you can burn an install disk that will install directly from the repositories on the net. Use the DIRECT LINK choice with the correct computer type.

    I'm using uTorrent. I've verified that I'm using MD5 and the checksum appears the same every time. I've tried looking at the checksum for the 32-bit version and it is a different checksum. If I do a download and generate a checksum based on that, I get a completely different checksum. (Haven't done it multiple times to see if I'm getting a different checksum each time). I am verifying that the checksum is correct every time. The checksum file linked to on the download page has the actual checksum and a description of the checksum. That's always correct. The MD5 checksum I'm using is: 082ebfac494b41cd56b38fb4218c545d. The SHA1 checksum is: bbd388d380546198e1797e15208f07074aae396c.

    When I do the download from Firefox using Download Them All, it allows me to put in the checksum (either MD5 or SHA1). If I don't, I can download the entire file and then when I check the checksum, it fails. If I put in the checksum, it fails immediately. It doesn't download 10% and then fail. It fails immediately. It's almost like the checksum doesn't match the file on the server.

    I just did an FTP download. Same problem. I did another download using Download Them All from Firefox. Both appeared to download fine, but game me a different checksum. The MD5 checksum that both files had after download was: f07e12fb40c2c21f2d6bdeedd0c1e281.

    I just tried the GNOME Live CD and it worked fine and the checksum matched. I don't get it.

    Linux:

    Code:
    -------------------
    > aria2c --check-integrity=true --summary-interval=300 http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...6_64.iso.meta4

    -------------------

    If you have a partial download, change to the directory where it is, so
    that aria2c has a chance to reuse it (it will correct the errors).

    Try this one which I just put there after verifying its md5sum matched
    082ebfac494b41cd56b38fb4218c545d:

    ftp://ftp.novell.com/outgoing/openSU...-GM-x86_64.iso

    Good luck.

    'AB' asked what file system are you downloading to (but no answer)..

    and, i can not see if you you are downloading a DVD or a CD image..

    but, i will _guess_ you are downloading a DVD image to a FAT32 file
    system..

    but, that system does not have the capability of holding a file of the
    size of the DVD iso....which means you will never get a good MD5 or
    SHA check..

    you can read more about that on the guide you can click to from the
    download page, look for "Download Help"...

    *if* my _guess_ is correct your options are to:

    1. download and install from a CD image
    2. download to a file system capable of holding the DVD image
    3. buy a disk (many are available on the net)

    let us know how you get on . . .
