Thumbs down suse 10.0 yast installation problem with DVD


I have installed suse 10.0 via DVD from authorised NOVELL distri. Now after some days when i started to install more packages via same dvd then it says

"Package .......x86_64 was not fount on the medium"

I tried 2 or 3 more dvds of sues 10.0 but it says same problem. I have checked installation sources. It has one DVD source Enabled.

I tried Media check also. It says

Identification: SuSE-Linux-DVD-10.0
Medium: DVD1
Size: 8331742 kB
Result: md5sum wrong

Can anybody help me.

The media check says the md5sum is wrong. This implies that there is an error in the media. However, the media check itself is not always right with removable media (it works fine for an .iso file on a hard drive, though), so I would not let that worry you excessively.

When I ran into this situation previously (it happened to me once), after a long investigation, I finally isolated the problem to a failing DVD drive. I replaced the drive and the problem disappeared.

There is another way to get the files, though. Connect to the repositories and download the files directly from there. You can find out how to do such things by checking out this article:
