i trying to install open suse 11.1 from dvd on a HP Compaq dc7900 Small Form Factor PC with 8GB Ram and 2x500GB Sata HDD.
x64 system, x64 open suse ofc…
Installation starts and after some minutes checksum errors does appear…
“common-base-x86_64.tar.lzma” md5 checksum doesnt match… but i checked the md5 checksum before and burned the dvd 3 times…
so… with 4/6/8GB RAM it dont work, with 2Gb it works without and error…
bios detectes 8gb (4x2gb)
so some one have an idee why it dont work with 8gb ram?
thx and regards

RAM shouldn’t have any impact at all… it’s a red herring I would bet.
There are several threads in this forum on why this could be happening.
First, if you have verified the md5sum of the ISO before burning that’s
one good step. The next step is to make sure your burner is set to
verify the written data directly after burning. This can also be done
after the fact with the ‘dd’ command piping output to md5sum but it
takes a couple seconds to work out the correct parameters for ‘dd’ so if
you do it while burning that’s usually the best way. Next it’s best if
you burn the media at the slowest speed possible… it’ll take a bit
longer but it’s faster than burning twice or three times obviously.
Lastly the media has a check you can do before installation, I think,
from the first installation screen (Grub-looking). If that returns
properly it’s usually a good sign.
The ability to read/write media seems to depend per burner/reader and
sometimes per media used for the burn. I don’t know burners/readers are
getting worse or media are crap or if it’s just an unfortunate
combination but ISOs that work perfectly regularly fail when burned and
then read later so something in that process isn’t happy.

I had similar issues, found that disabling the install from image
feature at the bottom of the summary screen before you commence the
install helped installing on this notebook.
