corrupt; fails signature from the following command.
"rpm --checksig --nopgp boot.img"
boot.img: rpmReadSignature failed
Its not an RPM - you can't run rpm --checksig on it.
boot.img has invalid signature from rpm - is corrupt and won't boot
What is the error message?
The error message is:
loading initrd.img.......boot failed.
As mentioned above another error message is the failed signature of
I noticed that the filesystem of boot.img is type vfat while the
modules and supp disk is ext2. Does that make any difference?
You may likely have a bad disk or currupted download. Please try again
with either a new diskette or redownload the file.
Still corrupt as far as I know.
The rpm issue:
If I am not supposed to run rpm on it then the web page has an error.
You can verify each package with the following command:
rpm --checksig filename
If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
rpm --checksig --nopgp filename
MD5 sum Package Name
Last time I tried the numbers did not match. I will try
another time this evening when I get home.
