Asus Eee - Corrupt Downloads

Dear All

Because I am new to the ASUS Eee and have to keep re-installing the OS, I have had to download Crossover several times. I have used Firefox and IE and I have checked my MD5SUMs - they are always correct.

However, when I double click to load Crossover, I get a text screen telling me that the file is corrupt.

Can anyone help?


not sure why you have to reinstall the Eee OS all the time, however maybe look at Ubuntu Eee and follow the instructiosn fromthe site regarding Ubuntu installation ?

I have to re-install (actually F9) regularly because in Full Desktop, when I try to get additional repositories, they always result in incomplete installations that stop further use of synaptic.

Unfortunately, your two links relate to Ubuntu on the Eee - I have the default installation which is more like Xandros (but not quite).

I have searched the Eee Forums at great length - that is why I am on this forum.


The thought was since you're reinstalling the OS everytime why not try ubuntu Eee which might work better

I might give Ubuntu a try after I have exhausted all possibilities on the default eee system.

Meanwhile - do you have any ideas about what I might be doing wrong?


If you're downloading the .sh universal installer for Crossover it might not have the unix execute bit set when it's finished downloading to your computer.

Open a terminal and type "chmod 755 " and then drag & drop the Crossover .sh installer onto the terminal window and hit enter. Then just drag & drop the Crossover .sh file into the terminal once more and hit enter. The Crossover installer should now run.
