Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 596836
F13 Security Spin cannot boot
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:23:46 EDT
Description of problem:
When booting live media (F-13 Security Spin) created by unetbootin-422 (which works, according to the wiki) the system hangs at boot and spews a few errors.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 13 x86_64 Security Spin (LXDE)
May happen to other architectures, desktops, and/or spins; this is the only one I've tested.
Happens _every_ time on all my computers.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create Fedora 13 Live Media using unetbootin 422 (Security Spin)
2. Attempt to boot live media
3. Wait until errors appear 1/3 of the way in boot
Crashes, spews errors
I've not tested anything but the Security Spin (which is LXDE) on anything other than x86_64. The bug occurs on all hardware I've tried it on. (Which means both my desktop and laptop...)
The error is attached.
I will attach any information regarding my hardware if you wish, but it seems hardware-independent.

The boot error
Assigning to one of the spin maintainers.
Thank you. The error occurs when I make my live USB with the livecd-iso-to-disk script as well.
I'm getting 0559d5b9b7415b7bb3704fad3d0ffb10517de3def4eb7b172a194a93be9079fb as my sha256sum, which I think ought to be f5f4b0dcd47aa6dc5f9ca0fdb985d153001017e54924dc2198a8178493415e1e...
I'm going to try a fresh download; I think the file is corrupt :(
Sorry to bother everyone!
After a fresh download, the sha256 on the new iso is 0559d5b9b7415b7bb3704fad3d0ffb10517de3def4eb7b172a194a93be9079fb...

I tried a torrent this time, and the iso matched the checksum. I'm willing to bet that this one will boot. Because both iso's not torrented resulted in a checksum of 0559d5b9b7415b7bb3704fad3d0ffb10517de3def4eb7b172a194a93be9079fb, which is invalid, and both had errors on boot, I believe that the image at http://archive.kernel.org/fedora-alt/spins/linux/releases/13/Spins/x86_64/Fedora-13-x86_64-Live-Security.iso is, in fact, corrupt.
I downloaded the image you mention and I get the follwing results:
This is just what you comment 5.
Really? When I did the normal http downloads, they did not have the correct checksum. I'm not sure why that is, the incorrect checksum was the same both times. I memtest86+'d my memory, and it's good... bizarre!
When I torrented, I got the correct checksum, and the image boots flawlessly. If the http mirror is fine, then I suppose it's a problem on my end.
I'm posting from my new Fedora 13 installation. Clearly, this bug was just an error on my part with the downloads.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused D:
