yep, I saw you put it there. if files were declared as missing or bad you should have in /var/cache/dropline-installer dir a file named bad_files, if you edit it you should see all the bad or corrupt or missing files in there. Many times this can be cause by a server problem or bad internet connection. If installer stops is worth to try it again, so it tries to select another mirror.
After I installed orca, speex and cairomm I re-run the installer and it was only complaint for speex and cairomm, and I checked the md5sum and are diferent at the list files?
I used dropline-installer-3.8_r5016-i686-1dl.txz
Try to see if you have those packages in /var/cache/dropline-installer/ if yes, try to delete them and it should re-download them. I will check now if they have maybe a wrong md5sum in the index file. This is what the installer looks at.
ok, orca is missing , cairo and speex have a wrong md5sum, you should find the correct files in the 3.8/i686 dir now, and they have been fixed in the index file too. Please try to re-run the installer and see if it is fixed now ?
Ok I understand what is on, I have to bump up the build numbers as the packages I have in 3.8 version are used from the 3.6 one but in some way they differ, now the installer sees them at 2 locations so they pick up the first one at random and then it downloads the wrong ones.
