Cannot read package data from installation media. Media error?
 
I downloaded the 9.2 DVD from Windows XP with DAP. Now when I try and install it on a clean new drive I get the error (under software packages):

Cannot read package data from installation media. Media error?
Error: No proposal

In the meantime I changed my LG GSA-4082B Super-Multi DVD±RW/RAM to a slave and my 120 GB Barracuda 7200.7 Plus to a master.

So next I tried to install 9.1 and do a update, under the installation source (I think) I get a invalide media source error and under software the same error as before.

I would really like to try this distro but I don't want to re-download 3.3 Gig or pay the same as I would for XP in the shops here unless there is absolutely no other way so if anyone could give me a hint as what to do it would be greatly appreciated.

Well I downloaded it again and I still have the same problem, before I downloaded it from several servers with DAP and now I only downloaded it from 1 server and the stupid md5sum doesn't match it has 1 error. I guess I will have to buy it now.

HowTo "DVD INSTALL" without a DVD
=================================


Download dvd.iso for Suse (Took 1 hr @ 1Mb/sec Broard band)
put it in windows partition (or what so ever ...)
Use a RAR application to extract the contents (Use WinRar took about 20 mins on 256 MB RAM)
Use Mini install to boot the system
Use Hardisk install and give the folder name where the files are extracted.

Here comes Suse to your life.
