Faulty LinuxMCE install download disks from 2 mirrors.
« on: May 12, 2007, 02:29:58 pm »
I have looked at the downloaded iso file and some of the file names inside the iso appear to be truncated. The md5sum of the downloaded file was correct by the way. In the iso I downloaded the files in error were:

The linuxmce-1.0-packages.iso downloaded from the mirrors is FAULTY. It contains two files that are incorrectly named:
Quote
libsdl1.2debian-pluto-oss_1.2.7+1.2.8cvs20041007+pluto-2_i386.de
should be libsdl1.2debian-pluto-oss_1.2.7+1.2.8cvs20041007+pluto-2_i386.deb - (the final "b" in "deb" missing)

Quote
lirc-modules-2.6.17-11-generic_0.8.0-5ubuntu1+2.6.17.1-11.35_i38
should be lirc-modules-2.6.17-11-generic_0.8.0-5ubuntu1+2.6.17.1-11.35_i386.deb - (final characters missing)

The install CD created from the downloaded iso does not work. You can extracted the packages into a directory and then burn the files directly onto the CD, or you can repackage them to an iso with
Quote
mkisofs -o /directory/Name.iso /directory
.
As a result the md5sum changes also

Wow, thank AAM.  I just checked the files on my mce iso and those two files were indeed incorrectly named.  I wonder if thats why my Ubuntu will not boot after installing mce.
Is there anyway i can fix/uninstall the bad mce or do i need to reformat and reinstall ubuntu all over again?

thanks

By the looks of just the file name, it appears as though those files are for the audio (oss) and the remote control (LIRC).
