Live-cd installation halts [SOLVED]

Postby orrebo on Sat Mar 05, 2011 1:52 pm

I am trying to install LMDE on my girlfriends computer but it halts every time.
The live-cd starts with no problems. It is the installation who halts on different places every time.
I usually use a usb-memory as live medium but this computer want start from that.

I have uploaded the output from lspci and dmesg to my dropbox:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12215606/lspci
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12215606/dmesg

Did you check the md5sum? Did you burn the dvd very very slowly on your burner? Is your dvd media RW....that causes troubles for some installations

I had the same problem untill I realised that I had the "older" iso version. The first iso which came out in December was the version number 201012, the newest version carries the number 201101.
You should also check the md5sum as malligt suggested. It should correspond to this number: daeabb182b016cd62bfced5483441b5a

It is probably the wrong DVD.
All the mirror for 64-bit is has the old version.
The 32-bit mirrors has the right version.
But I want the 64-bit.

There is only one for the 64bit.

Your dmesg file tells the story . .
    41.989370] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 9180408
    [ 41.994721] sr 0:0:1:0: [sr0] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE
    [ 41.994728] sr 0:0:1:0: [sr0] Sense Key : Illegal Request [current]
    [ 41.994732] sr 0:0:1:0: [sr0] Add. Sense: Logical block address out of range
    [ 41.994736] sr 0:0:1:0: [sr0] CDB: Read(10): 28 00 00 23 05 3e 00 00 02 00
    [ 41.994743] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 9180408
    [ 41.998962] sr 0:0:1:0: [sr0] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE
    [ 41.998967] sr 0:0:1:0: [sr0] Sense Key : Illegal Request [current]
    [ 41.998971] sr 0:0:1:0: [sr0] Add. Sense: Logical block address out of range
    [ 41.998976] sr 0:0:1:0: [sr0] CDB: Read(10): 28 00 00 23 05 3e 00 00 02 00
    [ 41.998983] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 9180408

I/O error = Input Output error. . dev sr0 = your dvd disk

so it may be a bad burn, or a bad download iso file, resulting in an incorrect md5 checksum . . .

Here is a members tutorial on how to do the md5 check : http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/346
and I suggest you read this too : http://linuxmint.com/rel_debian.php

good luck

The dmesg file comes from the computer I try to install on.
I have burned the dvd on another computer.

The md5sum I get is: 1284feca2dff0ec76c6be6825a71f9b7
And the md5sum on the download page: 1284feca2dff0ec76c6be6825a71f9b7

I have installed debian on mu laptop with a usb-memory without problem.
I hate cd/dvd:s :D

I know I have a flaky dvd-rw drive (LG) which does fine with CD's but only sometimes works with DVD's. After I figured out my issue was probably the drive, I found an external usb dvd-rw to use for writing and sometimes reading DVD's. The /dev/sr0 is the physical drive, which may or may not reflect issues with the media in the drive. The external drive I got is an ASUS at only 8x but the price was right, and it works pretty well. So I'd suspect your issues may be a flaky drive, as well.

I have thought of it aswell.
I have burned a new copy to DVD+R. I hope it will work now.
I don't have antother dvd player/burner and can't afford one right now.


*EDIT*

It was the dvd-player who was broken.
