I have downloaded the following file of 4 different servers now and every time the SHA1 and MD5 checksums have been fine, but the ISO is corrupt.

I have tried several pieces of software now to burn the CD and they have warned me that the file is corrupt, having burnt the CD the contents are not readable.

The file in question is:

installcd-ps3-minimal-20071212-r1.iso

I was wondering whether anyone knew if there was anywhere that hosted this file that is not corrupt, if not, then when will a working ISO be created that I can use to install Gentoo on my PS3?

Thanks

don't quote me on this, but i think that it's correct...

at least with the ps2 discs, they were in a certain format, or written in a special way, so that computers couldn't read them... it was meant as a form of copy-protection, so people couldn't just dump an iso of the disc and share it with their friends... does the disc boot in your ps3 regardless of what your burning apps say?

cheers

nope, it cant read it, I tried a ubuntu CD for PS3, and thats valid and the PS3 can read it... I'd just prefer to install Gentoo if possible as from the sounds of it, using the CD and a stage4 bundle you can have things setup a lot easier... I've got ubuntu installed at the moment but it took a lot of messing around and lots of things aren't working

The iso is not corrupt. We have ton's of happy users. If the md5sum checks out, then it's likely something getting messed up during the booting. By the way, you are not using CDRW are you? The PS3 does not support some of that media iirc.

You can always ask the folks on irc as well, #gentoo-powerpc. One of us should be able to help you.

You might also want to include the error you are seeing. What makes you think it is corrupt; that might help us figure out whats going on.
