Best download location
« on: August 25, 2013, 12:43:47 am »
is http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/ the best place to get the latest builds of lmce? I have downloaded it twice, burnt to a DVD at different speeds but half way thru the install it fails saying my that either the image I am using is bad or my hard drive is faulty (can't remember the exact verbiage). I have tried it on two different hard drives, 2 different PCs, and 2 different dvds burnt at low speeds.

Thanks

I downloaded 10:04 from http://linuxmce.iptp.org/release/LinuxMCE-1004-final.iso

Use image burn on win 7 and also verified the image, it has served me will doing multiple re-installs as I messed things up.

Why are you downloading snapshots? The wiki main page points you towards the final release.

Cheers,
Matt.

If you are still having issues try downloading it from my UK mirror

Thank you for providing this mirror, LennyB. I didn't even know it was there. Can we update some info on the wiki to reflect this?

Thanks for all your comments.

LennyB thank you very much for the link. I downloaded from your mirror and burned to DVD again at the lowest speed available and still had problems. I have never used the MD5 files to verify the download so I decided to do that this morning and the MD5 on my downloaded file does not match the file on your server so I suspect something is happening during the download. All the files I've worked with were downloaded from the same computer at my house and the download has been taking roughly 1.5 hrs which I thought was too low since in the past it has taken a lot longer. I am going to download it at work today and check the files again to see if it makes a difference and I will post again to let you know how it goes.

Thanks again everyone.

LennyB

The speed depends on your location. This mirror is hosted in the and has a 100mb dedicated connection so It's nice and fast downloading from it. I tested the 10.04 release in virtual box and it installed fine. I think you might be having disk issues. I'd try booting off an Ubuntu livecd loading the disk utility and looking if your disk is reporting any smart errors.

Thank you so much.... I downloaded the ISO from LennyB's mirror at work. This time I used the md5 file to verify the files before burning to a DVD and it matched so I burnt the ISO and installed it when I got home. It worked perfectly so I guess the problem is somewhere in my internet connection at home (I am suspecting my netgear router).

kudos to all the people that has worked so hard in this project. The 10.04 install was awesome and much cleaner than last install I did back in 8.10 many months ago when I had to install Kubuntu 1st and then launch the lmce installer from there.

I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to Linux so having an installer as straight forward as this one was a big help.


Thanks again
