Well, after a couple of false starts, I managed to download the ISO from the Torrent, but burning it to the disc just won't work.
Each time I try it ejects the DVD and says "there was an error in creating the disc".
It doesn't tell me what the error is, or give me any clue as to how I might overcome it.
I wondered if it was because I hadn't checked the MD5 signature, but I can't figure out how. The introduction PDF says to
open a terminal and type:
- Code: Select all
This command should output a series of numbers and letters which comprise the MD5
sum, or signature, of your ISO file. By design, any small change to the ISO file will cause
this signature to be significantly different, allowing us to verify that the file is exactly as
it should be.
Compare that signature with the one on the download page of the Linux Mint website. If
the two signatures are the same, then you know your ISO file is exactly the same as the
original and you can now get ready to burn it on DVD
Unfortunately, when I do this I just get
md5sum: linuxmint-gnome-i386.iso: No such file or directory
I'm stumped. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
