Are the beta ISO's available via ftp from tug.org fully functional ?
They're supposed to be! That's what we're going to send to production
after all. They're created reasonably simply, with mkisofs.
One potential problem -- the demo ISO is currently 659.5MB, so that may
overflow some cd formats. And the live ISO is ~1.1GB, so of course it
will only fit on DVD.
none of them seem to result in a usable CD ... also tried multiple
different CDROM burning software.
They get updated every night at 1am Denmark time. (I'm not sure how
that translates into Australia time. :) Another potential problem -- I
wonder if you're getting hit by this and the file is changing from under
you, resulting in corruption.
Can someone post an MD5SUM or similar so I can check my ISOs ?
Good idea, we should change the script to do that. Meanwhile, I've
copied the current inst iso to
ftp://tug.org/texlive/Images/test-20030813inst.iso (so it won't change
when the script runs again 9 hours or so from now), and written the
md5sum to test-20030813inst.iso.md5:
Please let us know if problems persist.
