isos on the Download section don't work
« on: February 11, 2018, 09:47:28 AM »
Tried the .iso live session . It gives a mistake after clicking in the menu the menu disappears. The two isos. The one through direct download and the one on Torrent. I have a previous install of some months ago in my Packard Bell laptop and works fine. I tested the isos just to see if they were working okay. Isos are not okay at  all.

Need to know, did you download wattOS R9 or Microwatt R9. Did you check the md5 sum after downloading (and before burning disk or put on thumb drive)? Please always check the md5 sum.

the two sources for LXDE 64bit full that are  available are the direct download Iso and the iso from torrent. I tried both. Both the same issue . Md5 for what? There are only those two sources. I dont need the R9 but those who might need will get that issue in the live iso.

The md5 sum is to validate your download to make sure it has not been tampered with.

Hi folks,

I will go "re-verify" all the download links this weekend. There were some hosting changes, so a chance some of the direct downloads of some versions could be impacted. Torrents however should not be obviously.
