    Mandrake 10.1


    Hello:
    I am trying to install mandrake linux version 10.1, the only problem is after i have set all of the partitions an error occurs. The exact error message is:
    An error ocurred
    getAndSaveFile (/mnt/var/lib/urpmi/hdlist.installationCD2(x86)
    (cdrom2).cz): No such file or directory.

    I have tried many things to fix it but cannot figure it out.

    Did you download the disks? If so did you check the downloaded file's integraty by checking its md5sum? Did you burn the cd at a slower speed like 16x?

    What operating system are you using?

    Linux: go to a terminal and type
    Code:
    md5sum /path/to/file
    it will spit out some numbers/letters and these should match a md5sum file that will be on the same page as you download from.

    Windows: Use a program like http://www.fastsum.com/, and it will spit out a number, and check that it is the same as the number on the page you downloaded.

    If the numbers/letters are different from the download site you have a corupted download, and will have to download again.

    I hope this helps

    From the page were you downloaded from, when downloading it usualy looks like
    gogolinux.iso 1000MB
    gogolinux.iso.md5 1kb
    open the one ending with md5 and you will be given the number it should be.

    Hmm, this is strange, are there any other computers you can check the disks on?
