    I think your file is corrupted, try downloading again.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    And get the md5 checksum files to verify that the download was successful.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
