MD5 checksum is not okay for DVD

Hi !

I have downloaded DVD OpenSuse 12.1 64Bit ISO from 3 different servers and tried burn with K3B but MD5-checksum is different from all servers so the DVD is broken when i mediacheck … I have also downloaded KDE CD Live and that produce a perfect MD5-checksum when I burn the CD with K3B …
Anyone having information about this ?

Best regards
Jan

When you load the ISO in k3b does the md5 show correct?

And no need to keep downloading!

Burn media dead slow on good quality media

Thanks caf4926 !

“When you load the ISO in k3b does the md5 show correct?” No not at all, md5 show wrong checksum.
“Burn media dead slow on good quality media” Yes you are right on that, so I always burn in slow speed x 6 but with no success
By the way I downloaded 1 DVD ISO yesterday and last night one further and this morning another one .
Okay I can install from KDE-CD and include ad-on Language CD but I will wait and standby for a correct DVD and then make a new fresh install

when you downloaded, what was the file system in use on the
partition/directory the iso landed on?

did you burn from that same directory or did you move/transport it to
another…

what i’m wondering is: did the DVD iso at any point touch a non-ext3 or
4 formatted partition? (including: are both /tmp and /var also on an ext
3 or 4?)

and just to make sure, is this the file name and md5 you are checking
against 4cfe8229111ef723ae7aa541fd2c87b7 openSUSE-12.1-DVD-x86_64.iso

The md5sum on the iso was correct for me. If you are getting a bad checksum on the iso, there’s a possibility that you have a bad memory chip somewhere.

I can’t comment on burning to an actual DVD, since I “burned” it into a USB stick (after running “isohybrid” on it).

No not at all, md5 show wrong checksum
If k3b shows it wrong, you are wasting your time burning it.

Use a torrent client to check the pieces of the image

Hopefully you can read my reply above

very strange indeed…

you don’t happen to be using RAID?

or, maybe you need to check your RAM, boot from a know good openSUSE
install disk and choose “Memory Test” on the first green screen during
boot…

oh wait…i remember somewhere reading about a situation in which K3b
can wrongly report an incorrect md5 on a iso…so, try this:

-go to http://software.opensuse.org/121/en

-select the 64 bit DVD (don’t click on download button)

-scroll down and find the “md5 checksum” link

-right click on the link and select “Save link as” and save it to the
same directory that you downloaded the iso into

-open a terminal

-navigate to the directory where the DVD iso and .md5 file are both located

-copy paste this into the terminal and press enter


md5sum -c openSUSE-12.1-DVD-x86_64.iso.md5

-wait until the check finishes…maybe a minute…

-what does it report? if it reports OK, then burn slow, boot from the
disk and do this: http://tinyurl.com/3qde66h

-if that check is good, go ahead and install…at least until you have
an error…

-if you have an error, report that back to here…exactly as it appears…

Hi DenverD !

1st.Thanks for reply , I will be back tomorrow after some new tests. Right now I am using O-Suse 11.4 64Bit KDE since about 1 year back and I like it very much…
I am using mobile broadband and have a Dovado 4GR router for my home computers.

2nd I will also try again tomorrow without the router and download DVD 12.1 via Windoz XP and then will notice the result of the ISO-file

Use a metalink downloader. Instructions on the wiki.
Alternatively, use torrent. They both can correct errors on the file
downloaded.

Also there are tools to correct a bad download (rsync, torrent) -
instructions same place.

careful! not all Microsoft file systems are capable of correctly saving
a file as large as the DVD file…

and please note: you might benefit from a lot of the other info on that
page…

Hi everybody !
Today I am lucky, I have this morning downloaded O-Suse 12.1 64 bit with great success. I used Wivdoz XP ((( Normaly we dont use Windoz in my home ! My hole family use Open Suse ))) I checked my Dovado 4GR router and allowed ping in the firewall, further I disabled both NoScript and Betterprivacy in firefox 8.o . I have made a mediacheck when the DVD start-up and everything is go… So for now I will try with a fresh installation

My PC is : MB Asus P5Q Pro Turbo with intel pentium E5300. RAM is 4GB and Nvidia Geforce 9800 GT

Yet I wonder if there is any instructions for Nvidia Geforce 9800 for OpenSuse 12.1 64Bit ?

… I thank you for support,

Best Regards
