Last week, we had the author of TDD for a Shopping Website LiveProject. Friday at 11am Ranch time, Steven Solomon will be hosting a live TDD session just for us. See for the agenda and registration link
2) I used the MD5sums tool to verify ISO files. The MD5sums tool created a 32 digit md5sum that matched the listed numbers.
3) Burn them onto CD as ISO image files
4) Boot with CD 1
If I boot with CD 1, I receive the following error:
error in exec of stage 2 :-( trying to execute '/user/bin/runinstall2' from the installation volume the following fatal error occured FATAL ERROR IN STAGE 1: I/O error I can't recover from this. You may reboot your system
So I then tried booting with CD 2 and then inserted CD 1. However, I received the same error.
Can someone please help me by providing directions on how to install Mandrake 10.0?
I burned the ISO image files at 10X, should I burn them slower?

Do I have to partition my HD before installing Mandrake? If so, can someone please help me in either providing or pointing me to the appropriate steps to install Mandrake 10.0 official? I am new to Linux, so sorry for my lack of knowledge.
After running the MD5 Checksum, I obtained different numbers than the ones above. However, the MD5 checksum tool didn't flag any errors during the test. Might this be the problem that the numbers that I generated during the MD5 test, don't match the above numbers? Nevertheless, I am re-downloading the files and will post my results shortly.
Originally posted by Stefan Wagner: md5sum just generates a number. It doesn't know a reference - the correct/ expected number. It will not tell you that something is wrong, you have to verify it by eye.
(If the number was included in the files, it could be manipulated too. Since a different number would lead to a different md5sum, how should it be stored?)
So if the numbers generated dont match the included numbers, then the files are corrupted?
I honestly don't know how to use the MD5sums tool. I first selected files and clicked on "create sums." I then chose md5 file and clicked on "verify sums." I then clicked on save after "verify sums" and clicked on save results as txt. The results were: Mandrakelinux-10.1-Community-Download-CD1.i586.iso OK Mandrakelinux-10.1-Community-Download-CD2.i586.iso OK Mandrakelinux-10.1-Community-Download-CD3.i586.iso OK
What am I looking for, what are the numbers or the file that I have to check?
A well - if there is a tool for verifying the sums, and tells you 'OK', I would trust in it.
I don't know a click-tool - I only know md5sum, and there you pass a file as argument
and it will show the checksum and the filename.
A difference in the md5sum will mean corrupted. A random-error will by nearly no possibility result in the same md5sum. And if someone is changing the file with bad intentions, he has nearly no chance, to modify it further (by adding useless information), to generate the same sum, even by brute force. I guess if an algorithm is found, to help faking an md5sum, there will be loud noise in the web about this issue.
O.K. I finally got the hang of the md5sum command line tool. Unfortunately, every single file that I have downloaded has generated a different sum number. The sum numbers don't match the displayed numbers on the asc file. What Gives?
Also, do I have to first partition my HD before proceeding with the Mandrake installation? [ October 06, 2004: Message edited by: Jesse Torres ]
