Is there any way to tell YaST to ignore MD5SUM errors during installation? I have had some serious issues with the install CDs since v10.0. I get MD5SUM errors during package installations as well as when I run the check media during the installation. I was just installing on a dual Xeon-64 system, and I got an error installing MainActor and when I hit ignore, the installation failed and dumped me to the text mode. I get this on x86, x86-64, AND PPC. It is really annoying. Or is there any way to have the installer realize that a previous installation has failed and to start from that point? Even Windows can manage that, but I have NEVER seen YaST offer to do this.
I've burned the install CDs with SuSE v9.2, 9.3, 10.0, 10.1 using K3B as well as under Windows and I have problems way too often. I can't imagine that all my drives are bad, I have dozens. I could care less about the MD5rSUMs of a package. I just want to be able to install without having to restart over and over....
It also doesn't matter what speed or type of machine. I have had erros with 200Mhz 604es as well as 2.8Ghz 64bit Xeons and 400Mhz G4s, 400Mhz G3s, 466Mhz G3s, etc.
Sorry to vent, but I have posted about this before, and it keeps haunting me.
