Thread: OpenSuSE 12.1 64bit: file:/var/adm/mount/boot/x86_64/common: SHA1 sum wrong

  1. #1

    Default OpenSuSE 12.1 64bit: file:/var/adm/mount/boot/x86_64/common: SHA1 sum wrong

    Hi,
    I downloaded http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...DVD-x86_64.iso, burned it on a DVD and when I tried to install it I got this error:
    Code:
    file:/var/adm/mount/boot/x86_64/common: SHA1 sum wrong.
    If you really trust your repository, you may continue in an insecure mode.
    I compared the SHA-256 hashes of the iso I downloaded and the one specified on the download page and they matched. I also checked the installation medium and it was fine.
    Why does this happen? Has anyone else encountered this?

    P.S. I'm installing this to a VMWare virtual machine but this shouldn't matter, right?

    Turns out when I try to install it on the real hardware there's no problem. But I need to install it on a VM.
    Do you guys have ideas why this happens?

    I installed in Player without problems. Only that I used the RC2.

    I'm trying to install it in VMWare Player too.
    My player is version 4.0.1 build-528992. What's yours? And what are the hardware settings of your VM? Have you changed anything in the VM BIOS?

    I think the same, the last one.

    All default, more or less. One cpu core, 64 bits. 700 MB ram.
    I don't use the real DVD, but the ISO image directly.

    Did you verify the checksum?

    I'm getting the same SHA1 error when installing from a DVD created from the 12.1 iso file.

    I can boot the system off of the DVD without problems, and the media check is fine. I can then proceed with the install without error.

    I can also perform the media check from within the VMware install, and it is also good. But when I continue and attempt the install from within VMware, I get this SHA1 error.

    Another note, I have no problem installing in VMware when I simply mount the 12.1 iso file. So there is obviously something different when the iso is burned onto the DVD.

    I haven't tried to install from real DVD in vmware, makes no sense to me as
    the iso image is somewhere in the HD and is faster. I'll try someday.

    Ok, trying now, I'm curious.
    [...]
    Apparently it checked fine (yast check medium module).

    It is actually better to have it on a DVD so that it is not taking up HD space, and you don't need the iso file on every system that you intend to install it on.

    Yes, the YaST check medium module works fine for me too when checking the DVD. The error stated in this thread occurs when you attempt the actual installation. Did you try that?

    I keep the iso image on my main machine, and delete it when I upgrade. I
    use the dvd for installation, but never used it for vmware install.

    No, I would have to create enough space for another virtual machine. I
    might try later.

    Ok, trying now. It has switched to text mode to run the verification, after
    booting a kernel.
    [...]
    It verifies correctly.
    After that it starts loading installation images, and the installation
    system starts. I stopped here, I don't need a second virtual system at this
    point.


    Note: the first screen vmware player displays when you say you want to
    create a new machine is whether to use a dvd image, a real dvd, or install
    yourself later. Choose the last option.
