Install Problem for 5.1.1 on Debian

Post by robtrapp » Mon Dec 14, 2009 7:11 pm


yesterday i just bought me the server edition.

Today i tried to install it and i always get the following error:

gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--crc error

In the past i installed allready the 5.0.68 on an other debian system with out any problems.

Can some body tell what i do wrong?
Is the file in the server damaged?

Best regards Robert

Hi I had the same problem installing the server with the automated installer.

I tried the manual (first 5.0.68, after that 5.1.1) way and it worked.

I seem to recall there is a requirement on a certain package for the install to work. I never use it personally, I manually untar the archive version on my Debian ARM Sheevaplug system and have no problems.
