Unable to Install Vers25 but Vers24 Runs Well....How to Update?


I have tried to use version 25, which installs and runs OK initially but fails on reboot with the error...XZ-compressed data is corrupt.

However, version 24 works without this problem and I am able to modify things and reboot without any error messages. It goes really well on my eeePC701SDX.....which has a 4GB memory card, 512RAM....I use unetbootin and do the install from the boot screen, the RAM size prevents me installing after booting up the live USB.

I have checked the media after download and it looks clean....

I would like to use the latest version 25, are there any suggestions as to what the problem might be?

Hi,

That looks like read-write errors.
1) Where did you download the 4MLinux ISO from ?
2) Was the target partition formatted by the installation script ?
3) Was the installation cleanly finished or you had to power off (or reboot) by pressing a button on your computer?

I followed the trail from Distrowatch and, if memory is right, download via Sourceforge

I usually format and set up partitions in advance and would have used Fat32

Yes, it started up and ran well and fast.......I enjoyed the initial result, this is going to be a keeper, and set about adjusting things, time, wallpaper etc,.....delighted with the result.......then I shut it down. Booted up later and got the error message

.....downloaded again x2, checked MD5 as good... got the same result. When I got 24 working, I followed the same process, but 24 rebooted and seems to operate as it should.

....looking for suggestions,Thanks

Hi,

Now I understand nothing. Does that mean that you are able to boot your 4MLinux 25.0? You can see an error during the boot, but the system seems to work OK. Is that so?

I installed 4MLinux 25.0, using a 'live' USB, to sda1......works fine initially but when I shut it down and reboot it fails with the error message...."xl-compressed data is corrupt"

Using the same process with 4MLinux 24.0 works correctly and reboots without fault which suggests my hardware and process is correct.

Obviously I would prefer to be able to use & reboot the latest version.

To make my point I need to answer with more than a Yes or a No

....after install of 4MLinux25.0 I can startx and use all the facilities of 4MLinux25 but when I shut down and reboot I get the error message and I am unable to log in or startx.

The 4MLinux help (http://4mlinux.com/help.txt) point 2.1:
Code:
The 4MLinux packages are called 'addons' (they are kept
   in the /var/4MLinux directory). If you copy an addon to
   to the /etc/init.d directory,  4MLinux will (re)install
   this addon during the next startup (see point 2.4).
The 4MLinux help (http://4mlinux.com/help.txt) point 2.4:
Code:
During each startup the sysinit script tries to install
   its 'neighbors', meaning that  /etc/init.d/rcS  installs
   all the addons  which are located in  the same directory
   (that is /etc/init.d). The installed addons are moved to
   /var/4MLinux (see also point 3.4).
CONCLUSION:
You have one or more addons in the /etc/init.d directory. Unfortunately, these addons are corrupted, so 4MLinux is unable to install them during the boot time. Why are these addons corrupted? My guess is that the system was not cleanly unmounted.

ADVICE:
Remove these addons manually using, for example, the 4MLinux live USB. Now try to boot your 4MLinux. If the problem still exists, then:
1) Download the 4MLinux ISO from its official repository (http://4mlinux.com/index.php?page=download).
2) Repeat the installation, but be patient: do not use poweroff or reset buttons. You can execute "poweroff" or "reboot" commands when the installation is over.

Good luck!

I went through the same routine again after another download from the "official" site (which redirects to Sourceforge?)

Installed from live USB to HD and install looked successful and was fully functional. I did not alter anything!

I shut it down by selecting 'shutdown' from the menu and after a complete shutdown I tried to boot it up again.

Same result......... XZ-compressed data is corrupt

Clearly you have a problem.

I've pointed out the problem.

Good luck

No, I don't. It works for me.

Could you please check what addons do you have in the /etc/init.d directory ?

In that case, there are no 'addons' in /usr/etc/init.d

Not " /usr/etc/init.d" but "/etc/init.d". For example, if your 4MLinux is mounted under /mnt/sda1, then it's /mnt/sda1/etc/init.d

/etc/init.d shows autostart.sh, rcS, restart.sh, shutdown.sh


....from the failed, installed files.
