I’m trying to perform a net install of 11.1 and ran in to a problem with package install. Any ideas?
I’ve run the install twice, the first time failing on on a glibc package. I repeated the install and it made it 82% through the package install.
The error gives the package name (yast2-network this time) saying it failed. The expanded detail shows a Subprocess failed Error: RPM failed: error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/share/… : cpio: MD5 sum mismatch
I did notice a minor difference in the install program from tds.net vs. download.opensuse.org. I’ve been trying to setup users in my 11.1 install from a prior version of suse install on the same system. The install program had an option to import them on the version from the download link, but the one from tds.net did not have the option. :’(
I considered this, but it’s a very good internet connection that I don’t see any other problems with. Changing to tds.net allowed me to do a full network install, so it seems to me it’s a problem with some of the mirrors or the download.opensuse.org redirector.
I’ve had a good install now, based on using tds.net mirror. Also, it seems the distro changed a little, or the auto detection changed, as neither the download.opensuse.org or tds.net installs shows me the ‘migrate user accounts’ option when I repeated the install yesterday (see my comments in post 5.)
Thanks Noisome, you where right on about the repo problems.
