Re: F11 dvd media errors

I'm having no luck getting the F11 dvd media to pass the initial media

Has anyone had any luck with this?

Downloaded Fedora-11-i386-DVD.iso using the fedoraproject.org torrent.

The disk image passed the sha256sum check. Burning to dvd+r gave
no errors.

Booting the F11 dvd and running the media check failed twice on the
first disk I made, and again after burning and booting a new copy.

Running the F11 media check on my F10 dvd was successful.

Booting the F10 dvd and running the media check on the F11 dvd gave this error:

Unable to read the disc checksum from the primary volume descriptor.
This probably means the disc was created without adding the checksum.

It hardly seems possible that the F11 dvd image is borked, but that's what it looks like.

Any suggestions?


I had the same issue. After trying to burn on two different DVD burners and downloading a 2nd time I finally decided to try and upgrade my F10 system anyway. The upgrade ran to completion without any errors. It rebooted fine. The DNS settings were not copied over and I had to enter them. I was able to get on the network wired. Yumex would not run. Yum clean all finally cleared that up. When I did a yum update it downloaded over 800mb. As far as I could tell they were all F11 updates. After that update and a reboot I got a blinking cursor and blank screen. At this point I restored F10.
