    finally downloaded a copy of openmamba but having problems booting the livecd

    tried default boot option but i get ( kernel panic -not syncling )

    1.7ghz 512 ram

    Hi David, have you sure the copy is correctly downloaded?

    You can test it using the follow command (if you have the iso file on the PC):

    md5sum openmamba-livecd-it-milestone1-1.1.i586.iso

    And to check that you’ve correctly burnt it: (assuming your CD/DVD reader is /dev/hda)

    dd if=/dev/hda bs=2048 count=360036 | md5sum

    in both case the result must be:

    Hi,

    can you please explain what you mean with “funny looking screen” when you boot with option 8? Isn’t that a black screen with text messages on it as it is supposed to be?
