    Thumbs down openSUSE 13.1 Live KDE x86_64 image corrupt

    I wanted to see if 13.1 corrected some issues I'm having with eSATA and LVM (it didn't) so I went to software.opensuse.org: Download openSUSE 13.1, selected the KDE Live button and then selected 64-bit and BitTorrent and proceeded to download the .iso. After bringing the file down and checking the data from within Ktorrent (it passed) I did a media check from within Yast. It said: "Result: Error -- MD5 sum does not match
    This medium should not be used.
    "

    So I booted up the Live DVD and did a media check from there. It also reported an error on the media. This kind of surprised me because the bit torrent protocol seems to have some reasonable error checking built in, but I deleted the image file and went back to the download web site and downloaded via the Direct Link.

    This time I also grabbed the md5 and sha1 files (I should have done that for the bit torrent image) and checked the image before doing a media check. They both said that the image was OK.
    Code:
    ron@buster:/home/shared/ISO_images/openSUSE/openSUSE-13.1-KDE-Live-x86_64> md5sum -c openSUSE-13.1-KDE-Live-x86_64.iso.md5
    openSUSE-13.1-KDE-Live-x86_64.iso: OK
    ron@buster:/home/shared/ISO_images/openSUSE/openSUSE-13.1-KDE-Live-x86_64> sha1sum -c openSUSE-13.1-KDE-Live-x86_64.iso.sha1
    openSUSE-13.1-KDE-Live-x86_64.iso: OK
    Nevertheless, after doing a burn with verify in k3b, both the image and the DVD failed the Yast Media Check:

    Code:
       0xa893698d (/home/shared/ISO_images/openSUSE/openSUSE-13.1-KDE-Live-x86_64/openSUSE-13.1-KDE-Live-x86_64.iso)
     
    
    • Medium: CD1
    • Size: 963902 kB
    • Result: Error -- MD5 sum does not match This medium should not be used.
    0xa893698d
    • Medium: CD1
    • Size: 963902 kB
    • Result: Error -- MD5 sum does not match This medium should not be used.
    So, according to the md5 and sha1 hashes what I downloaded is exactly what's on the download web site, but that image doesn't match the md5 hash stored within the image.

    What's going on? Is this a known issue that my search didn't find?

    Thanks,
    ron

    I had pretty much the same issue/s and burned the iso (i686) 3 times
    with same result.
    I also downloaded and burned the install i586-dvd and it tested and
    worked fine. The live cd/dvd booted Ok into a live session but I since
    gave up on it and threw it in the bin. For 13.1, Net install Cd or Dvd
    install iso is your best alternative, IMO).

    I can confirm that the 32-bit image suffers from the same problem: the image checks OK per the md5 and sha1 hashes but fails the YAST->Media Check as well as the boot-time media check (called from Grub).

    So is this something that gets reported to bugzilla?

    How does this get fixed?

    Thanks,

    That is exactly what I did, too. It even gave same warnings during normal
    live cd session boot up, when splash screen is removed.

    This should have been done when it was still in development but it won't
    hurt if you file a bug report. As it is, the live-cd got a number of bad
    reviews for openSUSE 13.1 and I think next release should have better
    QA testing.

    > How does this get fixed?

    Now that it is released and the iso propagated on various servers, I doubt
    that the problem will be fixed and a new iso released and thus, IMO, it is
    (would be) best to work around it and use alternative isos for an
    install or use as is for a live session to test hardware.
