Ubuntu Installation :: Checking Md5sum Of A Burned CD?

Dec 26, 2010

I checked the md5sum of the iso using winMd5Sum utility, it is OK.

To check the CD, right clicked the md5sum file in it, send to winmd5sum, and then copied the corresponding hash from the ubuntuhashes page into the bottom text box, and compared. The message box says md5 sums are different. Now the question is, have I done it correctly, I mean, is this the way to check a burned CD, OR, is there another way to check md5sum of a burned CD?

Ubuntu Installation :: Md5sum Mismatch- 10.04.2 Alternate Install?

May 16, 2011

I downloaded the Xubuntu 10.04.2 Alternate Install CD ISO file from http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/ubuntu-iso...10.04/release/

When I checked the md5sum of the downloaded file, however, there was a mismatch.

The md5sum given at both http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/ubuntu-iso...elease/MD5SUMS as well as https:[url].... is 209cfc88be17ededb373b601e8defdee *xubuntu-10.04.2-alternate-i386.iso but running the command,

md5sum xubuntu-10.04.2-alternate-i386.iso generated the following, obviously different checksum for me:

098674ad5a59f0115030c5c0c3973899 xubuntu-10.04.2-alternate-i386.iso

(It also took unusually long to generate the checksum- around thirty minutes.)

Is it possible that the file was corrupted or tampered with on the server?

Ubuntu Installation :: Burned DVD Of Version 9 Not Recognized

Jul 11, 2010

I've been trying for days now to install Ubuntu on a Dell Dimension 5100 desktop. It's got a 2ghz processor, ATI graphics card and 512 ram. It has a DVD drive that it boots from. Here's the problem. I have Ubuntu 10 burned on a regular CD and I have Ubuntu 9.1 burned on a DVD. I can boot this Dell up using the CD. It goes through the regular install, gets to 23% then tells me that it can't recognize the CD/DVD device or the hard drive. I've re-seated cables, I know the hardware is all good, this is my media computer that Ive had attached to my TV now for a year. It was running fine 3 days ago before I got the great idea to convert it to Linux.

Now...once that fails I try to put in the burned DVD of version 9. Again the computer boots, I tell it to boot from the DVD...but this time the computer acts as if that drive doesn't even exist. It simply can't find the DVD drive anymore once I put a DVD into it. Is this a problem with the basic reading?? It'll read a CD but not a DVD. If I let it boot all the way to the live Ubuntu CD, the DVD drive is recognized just fine, reads DVDs, etc. Is there another solution, something I should be trying? I need this comp on Ubuntu. I've already converted all other systems in my house and this POS is the only abomination still using windows.

Debian Installation :: Can't Find Squeeze RC1 Md5sum

I must be having a "senior moment".I just downloaded 'debian-sq-di-rc1-i386-netinst.iso' but I can't for the life of me find a list of Debian md5sums.I know I've done it before but I'm stumped. Sorry to be a pain.

Ubuntu Installation :: Md5sum: WARNING: 1 Of 62 Listed Files Couldn't Be Read

Oct 17, 2010

In order to upgrade a machine that can not successfully upgrade to 10.4 I downloaded and burned the 10.04.1 iso image off the ubuntu alternate download site. In my first attempt I unsuccessfully burned the image with it failing at the very end. I did perform an md5sum on it and received the precise output I got from my second burn attenpt which DID complete successfully. Here is the output:


I did research this last night and it seems the common wisdom was to reburn the iso (which I did twice) or copy down the iso again. This I also did and it came down precisely, bit for bit, the same as the first one. Here are the two cksums


Is there something wrong with this image on the website or is the error about 1 file being unreadable (could that also mean missing?) be erroneous?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Desktop Edition - Burned Disk Not Readable

Apr 30, 2010

So I downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Edition and burned it to a disk. Shut off my computer and restarted it, booting from the CD Drive. It couldn't find it. So I thought maybe there was an unrecorded write error so I burned it to a second disc. Well after burning it I noticed I can't even see the disc anymore. It doesn't seem to be recognized at all. That explains why it didn't boot from CD.

But what I want to know is why on earth is it basically going invisible and not working? I've never had a problem with burning discs, especially Ubuntu stuff... So why...? Well I just booted up the CD on a different computer and it seems to be working fine. So it appears that my computer simply has ceased to see bootable discs or maybe its just non-empty discs.

Fedora Installation :: 10 Install - Burned Dvds Would Not Boot

Jan 30, 2009

I'm trying to install fedora 10 via dvd without a lot of success. i'm doing this on an old hp 8765c computer. it has a sansung sd-612 dvd-rom player. the dvd's i burned would not boot. so, i checked the dvd. sha1sum. check verify dvd when burned. check boot on system where the dvd burned. check dvd verify when bootedc check ok, lets check the dvd player. From i can see on the web, this player had issues about not playing dvds. some relate to driver issue when upgrading me to xp. and, some refer to updating firmware. lots of post about the dvd player not playing dvds. None with a succinct solution.

Well, if anyone has a solution for updating the firmware for a samsung sd-623 dvd player, it would be helpful. For now, installing from the internal dvd player isn't going to work for hardware reasons. Plan B lets try installing from the dvd using a network attached dvd server. sing the net install cd. use linux askmethod, use url to point to the dvd. the image in retreived, select all the defautl options, format the drive, does the package selection, does the package dependencies, but errors on the retriving packages. puts up the download retry message. then show message about not being able to retreive the authcong-gkt... rpm. just let the net install go. i get to the nic configuration, it errors out. probably network manager issue about trying to set a static ip address.........

Fedora Installation :: Evaluate The Checksum - Burned A CD With The Disc1.iso

Apr 1, 2010

I've downloaded the


files. I then downloaded "Fedora-12-x86_64-CHECKSUM" and ran sha1sum.exe on my iso files and compared the results. They were wrong for all 5 iso files. Figuring there was a problem with the way I was trying to evaluate the checksum I burned a CD with the disc1.iso. I received a "INSERT A BOOT DISK" error from my machine. I then tried downloading the disc1.iso again and ran checksum on my newly downloaded file and get the same checksum on both the old and new disc1.iso files.

When I run:

I get the response:

It seems to me the checksum value should be:

What am I doing wrong? I've installed many different distros in the past and am pretty sure I burned the iso file not just copied it to the CD.

Fedora Installation :: ISO Image Burned On CD - Dell 300SC Server

I have a Dell PowerEdge 300 SC that won't boot to the Fedora ISO image burned to the CD. I unpacked the .iso and the CD has the boot, isolinux and LiveOS folders visible. In the BIOS, I put the CD driver ahead of the hard drive in the boot sequence. It just doesn't see it. Is my hardware simply obsolete?

OpenSUSE Install :: Flashdrive Boot - Installation Media Check Md5sum Wrong

Feb 16, 2011

Used to run Gentoo, years ago, getting back on the linux train. Anyways, got a new media pc and am having some troubles getting it to function. I am using ImageWriter, an OCZ Rally 4gb flash drive and have tried both HTTP and BitTorrent downloaded copies of 11.3 with the same md5sum check wrong error. What am I doing wrong? Is it because it thinks it is a CD or am I getting bad copies of the ISO? I am so out of practice I can't remember anything about installation anymore and am at a loss.

Ubuntu :: Checking Disk Mean Checking All Partitions On Hd?

May 10, 2010

Sometimes at startup I get this message "Checking disk 1 of 1". Does that mean it's checking all partitions on the hd? After a bad shutdown there is no prompt for fsck to run and the system just boots up. In fstab I have both options set to "1" for the partition Ubuntu is on, all others set to "0". Any ideas on both?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Not Checking For Updates

Jun 8, 2010

I have Update Manager set to check for updates daily, to 'only notify about available updates', and have 'important security' and 'Recommended' updates turned on.Since upgrading to 10.04, Update Manager never starts up to tell me that there are updates available. If I run it manually and click on 'Check', I have to type my password in and then it will show that I have updates to install (if there are some of course).

I realise that I shouldn't get a notification icon any more, and that update manager should open instead.Anyone know whether this is something I can fix, or if it's a bug or a problem with the update server that I can't do anything about other than wait?

Fedora Installation :: Checking For Libraries Currently In Use?

Jul 19, 2010

I have just installed from the Live Cd (Fedora 13). So far so good except that I have just installed the updates (which has taken some time) .

The updater screen shows a full progress bar and next to the progress bar is this text " checking for libraries currently in use" this has been at least one hour showing the same thing, it hasn't changed (PC is still running OK). Does this mean I can safely quit and the updates will be OK or should I keep waiting for a reboot screen or updates success message ? Is this normal, if so how long does it usually take to complete?

Ubuntu Installation :: LiveCD Hangs On Checking Battery State

May 6, 2010

So much for an LTS release being stable. I try to boot from a LiveCD and it hangs on "Checking battery state..." I searched the forum for a solution but didn't really find anything. This is an old desktop machine with Intel onboard graphics -- nothing too fancy and nothing it should have a problem with. Yet it's not working.

Ubuntu Installation :: Distro For Diagnosing / Checking Hardware Components?

Jun 26, 2011

I have an old desktop I've been working to put back together and get working. When I took it apart I was under the assumption there was a problem with the mobo. Now I've begun to question that (the information that led to that belief was very slim).

I'm looking online right now but if anyone knows of a Linux distro I can use to diagnose/ check hardware in that machine. Something that runs live would be preferable. I'm thinking knoppix and am reading about it right now.

Ubuntu Installation :: Edubuntu 10.10 LiveCD - Checking Battery State - Can Not Mount

Apr 14, 2011

I am having a hard time installing Edubuntu 10.10 on a Toshiba L30

System specifications:
Toshiba L30-140
Intel Celeron M CPU 410 1,46 GHz
ATI Radeon XPress 200M Series
Bootable with CD/DVD only

While installing Edubuntu, I encounter two problems:

Can not mount...

I will reach to the screen to select to install Edubuntu and it will even show the green leds. I push F1 to get more detailed messages. After 2 minutes or so I will have this error message:


This error appears randomly. Out of ten attempts to boot, 6 times I will get this error message. 4 times I will get to...

Checking battery state ... [OK]

This will advance up to "Checking battery state... [OK]" which will freeze there with no DVD or HDD-Activity visible.

I encountered very many threads on the "checking battery state" issue, but they seemed obsolete to me, since most of them referred to Ibex. Also this is the Edubuntu LiveCD, it has not yet been installed on the HDD.

Nonetheless, for the Checking Battery State problem I have tried solutions for Ibex such as "acpi=force pci=noacpi" and "acpi=off". But it wouldn't work. Some people also suggested changing the graphic configurations, this is ATI however, not Nvidia and the BIOS does not offer the option to change it.

Strangely, the installation has worked brilliantly (with the same dvd) on another computer (some Laptop Toshiba L30), so I don't believe it might be a damaged disk.

Ubuntu :: Wrong MD5SUM On CDs Burnt From ISOs?

Jan 13, 2010

I am having a problem checking the MD5SUM of some CDs burnt from ISOs, and I'm not sure whether the problem is the burning or the checking. I get the same problems on several PCs, and it seems to be dependent on the ISO. I have for a couple of years used a script someone gave me to verify CDs against ISOs when I want to check the disc and it has always worked in the past. The core line in the script is:

devmd5=`readom dev=$cddev sectors=0-$count f=- | md5sum | awk '{print $1}'
count is the size of the ORIGINAL ISO as calculated by isosize

Ubuntu :: Md5sum Was Corrupted During The Download Process

Aug 14, 2011

I am attempting to install Ubuntu Server 11.04 on a fairly old system. I downloaded the 32bit installer and burned it to a disk but got an error when it tried to install.

I checked the ISO md5sum, for all 4 versions(Server/Desktop 32/64 bit), and all 4 were wrong.

It is my understanding that the md5sum was corrupted during the download process, so is there a way that I can fix these without having to redownload them and crossing my fingers?

In my digging around I think I read about using a bitTorrent client to repair the iso but that would only be if you torrented the iso in the first place? I used the direct DL from the Ubuntu site.

I am using 64bit W7 and winMD5Sum.
