Re: No boot from USB, wrong checksum

Ugg. Slackware has been a bit of a chore, but it's forced me to learn a lot more Linux . And now I'm studying programming. You're never too old I reckon. Parrot is my next main desktop to try, boots great any medium any machine (I'll figure out why eventually) and is going to a Devuan base next ( De...

Re: Solus Budgie 3 killed my DVD?

I have had great success with Brasero for burning live and install DVD's (and CD's for the tiny ones). Only had one bad burn experience so far and just trashed that DVD, started fresh. This is with the over a dozen distros I've "hopped" lately. Except Solus. Solus won't boot with any regularity on m...

Re: No boot from USB, wrong checksum

And I did find that indeed there are apparently a multitude of ways to generate checksums, whilst sorting out the checksum for Slackware . This trick I did not pick up on at any point previously, but have now earned it in the "way of less forgetting". My enthusiasm for Solus has been dampened thorou...

Re: No boot from USB, wrong checksum

Okay, now I see that the reason for two different "correct" checksums could be because different checksum generation tools . Perhaps I downloaded the wrong one, or used the incorrect tool to generate mine. I don't know (yet). I gathered this much because I noticed that Slackware has a PGP checksum a...

Re: No boot from USB, wrong checksum

And today I take Solus, MX-17, AnitX 17,and Peppermint 8 over to the remote site to see if any of them will boot from optical media.


I think I need to learn Slackware and just quit messing with the "pretty stuff".

Re: No boot from USB, wrong checksum

Update as I was really considering making Solus "my thing". But at this point I'm satisfied I won't be able to share it-and one of my machines shall be running whatever it is I "distribute" to my less PC savvy pals and such. Not that you can get much lower than myself. I'm just not scared of poking ...

Re: No boot from USB, wrong checksum

Regarding 14 distros in 48 hours (wow!) - what's the two biggest positive things you saw in Solus that set it above the rest? Regarding failed Sandisk drive - what is the model number of the failed one? What model number did work? What make/model pc are you using? I think this info may be helpful t...

Re: No boot from USB, wrong checksum

nevermind. The checksum I downloaded from your section on downloads appears to be wrong. I searched the checksum I was generating and found it in some other list of Solus checksums and it matched fully. SO I re-worked the USB stick and it loaded and worked great. I love it-- Solus is very high on my...

No boot from USB, wrong checksum

I'll be first to admit I load Live versions sometimes without checking checksums. I've tried about 14 distros in the last 48 hours. I'm about to quit. Solus looks GREAT, but it's not loading up. So i checked the sums and found no match. I downloaded again. The second check matches the first, but is ...
