Thread: 13.1 checksum error ALL THE TIME!

  1. #1

    Question 13.1 checksum error ALL THE TIME!

    I've downloaded 13.1 and ran an md5sum check sum and md5sum was ok.
    Then I burned it to disc via Ubuntu.
    Booted my Dell laptop to KDE live DVD.
    Checked Installation media, got an error, "b43: probe of bcma0:0 failed with error -524"

    I have downloaded numerous images and burned many DVDs
    and I always get a failed checksum with the live DVD, when I am running the live DVD.


    Please help to find out what is wrong. ?

    I hope you burned to a DVD, not a CD. The image is probably too big for a CD, and a truncated burn would cause problems.

    YES burned to a DVD. Any idea why I'd repeatedly get a bad md5sum when checking the integrity of the disk live?

    Typically, your dvd media is bad, or the dvd burner unit is bad. You can
    try another dvd brand, burn at a lower speed...

    Or you can run another check.

    Extract the image back from the DVD using dd, and then compare that
    image back to the originally downloaded image, with "cmp".
