apt-get update -> "Hash Sum mismatch"
« on: April 24, 2010, 11:18:28 pm »
Hello,
I am trying to install LinuxMCE beta 2 from DVD, but I am running into issue with apt-get update after first login to the kubuntu.

I was looking at the bug database, ubuntu forums and this forum, but I couldn't find an clear answer.

Basically when I am running the command:
Code: [Select]
$ apt-get update

Then the error occurs:
Code: [Select]
[...]
Hit http://debian.slimdevices.com stable/main Packages
Fetched 2B in 1s (2B/s)
W: Failed to fetch http://www.avenard.org/files/ubuntu-repos/dists/intrepid/release/binary-i386/Packages.bz2  Hash Sum mismatch

E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I was trying to run:
apt-get -f update, apt-get clean, apt-get autoclean, but no success. Any hints / help really welcome!

Get the latest snapshot from http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots and install from there. We no longer use the Avenard repo

Does this mean that the Installing 0810 - LinuxMCE wiki http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_0810 is no longer valid since it pulls from avenard or does this just apply to the DVD images?

I updated the wiki with a link to the snapshot page.

I also get this error...I cant afford to download another 4gig of data (my plan will be exceeded) I ignored this error earlier today and completed an install but the system wouldnt start so I think this repo issue might be the cause.

Is there another way to manually point the source.list file to a new repository to get the required files??

I have been trying to get this bloody thing working to my satisfaction for weeks...I used a snapshot from April 9 or so and it wouldnt work for me, had more luck with the straight beta2 but not now given this new issue.

Is there any way to update the sources.list file instead of downloading the DVD and reinstalling Kubuntu again?

How does this affect those of us already up and running?  Right now I'm watching a fresh MD install and I'm seeing errors and packages not found for the avenard repo.  Should I update something?  Should I just ignore it?

Guys,

a note on the snapshots. They are just that, snapshots for devs to check what is going on. And for users to try and find out, if things break. It is quite possible, that a snapshot gets produced that does not work at all, deletes all your files, goes back in time, and kills your great-great-great-grandparents. Even though, I use most snapshots as a testbed, you are on your own.

We will have a new, more official DVD out soon.

Is there any change to include all the resources on a single blue ray disk or on a dual layer dvd for an off network installation? Or is it possible to create your own?

Theoretically yes.

We welcome patches to the installation script that allows for installation without internet connectivity.

Hello,

I installed LinuxMCE via the internet installation and have the same problem. Does anyone know the new repository? I can't install mythtv because the packages are from this source.

There are only two repos needed, and both are setup:
  • (K)Ubuntu Repos
  • LinuxMCE beta2 repo

The newest snapshot gets past this when
sudo su - #This might ask for the password you specified earlier during the install of kubuntu.
apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
wget -c http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/new-installer-latest.tar.gz
tar xvf new-installer-latest.tar.gz
cd new-installer
./pre-install-from-DVD.sh

Of course now I get "orbiter failed to setup the transparency"
I will be trading out video cards to see if I can get past this, apparently I read it was an invidia driver load problem. unless anyone has suggestions

tar xvf new-installer-latest.tar.gz
cd new-installer
./pre-install-from-DVD.sh

This is something you should not do. If you use the DVD snapshots, you do not download the new-installer archive, as it already is present on your system. Together with the link to start it from the desktop.

What you've done now, is used an older new-installer, to overwrite stuff you had. Interesting that it still works.

That's good to know..  so what is the pre install dvd.sh for? Why does it inport when you get latest? And do you have an accurate install wiki for using a snapshot?  Did you know your only dvd seller sells version 1 of linuxmce? Or that your current bbeta 810 dvd doesn't load the sources correctly so the installation fails. Throw me a bone here.. I bought a crapload of equipment and can't get it running on 810. Is the consensus that you can only use the cd installer?
