That is the wrong md5sum -- that is the one from rc1.

The md5sum of this ubcd50rc2.iso file seems to be:

Is that correct? Please edit the base sticky announcement post accordingly.

I also get:

Code: Select all

$ md5sum ubcd50rc2.iso 
42d07a5708c7cc08c6c23a551d0b5613  ubcd50rc2.iso
@ all
Changed md5sum hash for ISO in Victors post.

The HTTP/FTP link still points to an RC1 download on the hosting site. Not sure about the torrent as I can't use bitorrent @ work ...

I can't seem to get HDAT2 working when booted from USB under any boot options. Anyone else having that issue?

About script for generating ISO file for linux :

Hello everybody,

about the file :

Code: Select all

# Define VOMUME_ID (LABEL) of the iso

# Define ISO filename (can be overridden by passing arguments to the script)
instead of : (fixed)

Code: Select all

# Define VOMUME_ID (LABEL) of the iso

# Define ISO filename (can be overridden by passing arguments to the script)
Watch out to not crush your custom iso file. It happen to me when i generate my custom iso.

Thanks for your job. Joe
