I’ve just downloaded the 11.0 x64 installer DVD via bittorrent, burnt it (nero says no errors), and tried to install it on my 60 gig IDE hard drive (on a raid card).
I can customise the installation fine, and chose exactly which packages and boot options I wanted, with gnome, KDE3&4 and XFCE win managers, but when the installer begins, it goes through the first phase, and then declares that is has failed to mount, and that “some packages were not installed”.
I tried this again, and verified with the on disc tools that the disc was not in fact corrupted, but it continues to fail installation.
I thought bittorrent took care of that…
But if it is, then because I’m in Australia, there’s no way I’m going to be able to download it again, as our country’s ISPs have this horrible practice of allocating quota…
It should, and usually does a good job, but if the md5sum doesn’t match
you may be able to use BitTorrent to reverify and fix the section(s)
that are off. Either way downloads of all kinds should always be verified.
