squashfs read erros in livecd

leave a comment »

some users get squashfs read errors when booting from a livecd. these errors can be due to a variety of reasons:

  • bad media (solution: try burning the iso image to a new disc)
  • a bad drive (solution: try using a different cd/dvd drive)
  • bad memory modules (solution: use memtest86+)
  • a corrupted iso image (solution: run an md5 checksum)

I decided to document this here.
