I thing I’ll go crazy if i don’t go crazy tonight.
I’ve downloaded and burn like 4 or 5 DVDs of OpenSuse 11.2 x64.
Verified the media tons of times… OK
Search OpenSuse posts and google… applied solutions with no success
Tried the Internet installation… same error
and nothing, grrrrrrrr
I’ve brought a new hardware this week and installed a virus called Windows XP (just kidding)
Everything works well on windows.
But, when i try to install the OpenSuse it gives me an error “Wrong Digest” in different files.
The source files were downloaded from the official site. First from a direct link and then from different mirrors.
2 x 2GB DDR2 800Mhz Kingston
Asus P5KPL-AM EPU
1 x 120Gb Sata 3Gb With Windows XP
1 x 500Gb Sata 3GB SAMSUNG HD502ST with ext4 partitions for Linux
1 x DVDRW Sata
I’ve tried a different DVD.
I’ve tried in the second partition of the first disk
What else can i tell you? I’m frustrated. Two days in this…
First did the download file have the correct checksum?
Second did the check media pass the test?
Third since this is a new machine did you run the memory test? Windows will run with bad high memory Linux won’t
Are you burning to RO or RW media. Only use RO.
The file has the correct checksum.
The media check finish but hangs the pc at the end, putting it to an hold state with keyboard ligths flashing.
The memory test goes now. Tell after how it did.
The DVD media is an RO.
memtest for 10 hours went goot. No problems with memory.
Tried the live KDE DVD and everyting went good. Could do allmost everything in the live DVD.
Burned another media in another DVD at 4.0x (slowest speed) and same error.
Check the md5 checksum of the DVD downloaded and it was wrong. --< Possible problem
Check the md5 checksum of the internet instalation DVD used before and it was ok. Tried but same error.
I’m doing a new download and permorming a md5 checksum before burn it.
I’ll came back when it is finish to say how it goes.
One question: Does the time in the bios as any influence? As it is a new computer i forgot to set it. Does it matter?
I’ve remember having some update problems in one RedHat 5.2 Enterprise server last week.
Ok i agree. It’s not a DVD.
I’ve download another live CD and the problem now is that not KDE or GNOME live starts. Tried before and KDE went well.
Meanwhile i got some windows blue screens.
I started a stress test with ‘Hirens Boot CD’ and it found a memory problem.
Load an OpenSuse DVD and start again the memtest86+ v.4.00.
While i was writing … the errors appears.
Going to change the memory and start the process all over again.
I’ll tell how it goes.
Thank you all for your kindly support and pacience.
