    By checksum, I assume you mean the MD5 checksum that is posted on the download site.

    If that checksum is not correct, if the one posted on the web site where you downloaded the file, and the one that is created by the file you downloaded, you have a corrupt file.

    If you have a corrupt file, there's no telling what difficulties you might have installing or running the system.

    Somewhere along the internet system, you got some corrupt data. You'll have to obtain a good copy of the installation file and start over.

    I know it's frustrating, but it'll be worth it in the end!

    Thanks for your replay @montana, Yes i meant MD5 Checksum, i downloaded the ISO from openSUSE website twice then how come MD5 Checksum can be wrong? if i have corrupt file then how i am able to install it on Virtualbox? yes i am too much frustrated to install openSUSE before i was using Linux Mint from long time and when i search for the best Linux i found openSUSE, trying again and again is making me dislike openSUSE, i am downloading 4.3 GB of data for the third time, i hope this time it work otherwise i will say bye to openSUSE...

    PS. i am trying to install openSUSE via 8GB USB

    A corrupt file does not mean all things are bad could be only a byte or 2 so maybe the corruption is not in a place needed for the VM like a video driver or such. Someig needed in a real install but not important in a VM install.

    If the check sum does not match then the file is considered no good and you should either down load again or get the iso in some other manner.

    How did you down load? a Torrent down load is usually much less prone to corruption because of additional check on the chunks that are downloaded.

    What package are you downloading that is 4.5 GB in size? The size of the "openSUSE-13.1-KDE-Live-x886_64.iso" file I downloaded was 964,608 KB.

    I re-downloaded 4gb and 250mb iso the checksum is now fine. Now I don't have any issue about kaffeine. Now I am only stuck at (refer to my second picture) 3% and 11%. I downloaded via torrent. Please advice I have same issue.

    Just another way to install with just the desktop you want without extra. And allows you to run from the DVD or USB stick

    You still have an issue which is NOT package related so you have to tell us more like what hardware are you installing on with what video card? Are you installing 32 or 64 bit version?

    Dear @Gogalthorp,

    When i created USB via RUFUS i had no problem of package related,

    Processor Manufacturer Intel
    Processor Type Core i3
    Processor Model i3-360M
    Processor Speed 2.3 GHz
    Processor Core Dual-core (2 Core)

    Memory
    Standard Memory 2 GB

    INTEL HD GRAPHICS....

    I am trying to install 64bit, what you think i should give 32bit a try?

    PS. i done installing KDE LIVE 64bit 945MB ISO which was easy to install, tell me if 4.3GB ISO is more suitable for me than this small one.

    Thanks
