Smile Weird install errors- Debian Etch


Hi,

I did run Debian Etch(beta 2) for quite some time, but, then ran into some weird errors during fresh installs of Etch. The netinstall would go fine, it would connect to the repo, but, the install would fail at the very end. It said something like duplicate file found or something to that effect.
I've searched at the etch install site for beta 3, but, can't find an obvious link for checking my md5checksum file for the netinstall iso.
Do you think this is a bad iso or a repo issue? If it is a repo issue has anyone got a stable repo for etch beta 3?
I do know how to burn a good iso file:-)
Thank you for any and all replies.

respectfully submitted,

Okay, I found the note at the bottom of the net install page mentioning that the md5check sum file is in the same directory as the cd image. I'll check that out:-)

Smile MD5 checksum Error

Hi it seems as though you have run into a similar error. When I run apt-get update it returns with the error that my MD5 checksums don't match and it seems to do it on searching bunzip2 about 99% into the update. However it seems that I am quit a newbie compared to the original poster and don't know how to go about matching these up, ca anyone give me a walkthrough please

cheers in advance

Okay. This is just weird, but, good. I just completed an install of Debian Etch beta 3. No errors, it went without a hitch:-) I must say the good people at Debian have fine-tuned the netinstaller.
I was impressed by the fact that xorgconfig set-up automagically:-)
It is nice to be running Debian again:-)

Yes, that happened to me before on two seperate occasions, it drove me nuts. Try downloading a new iso or re-burn your iso at a lower rate. It's great to be running Debian again. Debian has all of the features of Ubuntu.........plus, it is faster:-)

How come it's decided to start now when it's been working fine before?
