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. ? :shame:
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”.

I tried a bunch . . . weird how this happened. Considered this thread closed.
