SQUASHFS Errors During Bootup Using Latest ISO

Post by abbas_qamar » Fri Apr 10, 2015 6:15

The Sabayon_Linux_15.03_amd64_GNOME.iso, Sabayon_Linux_15.04_amd64_GNOME.iso and Sabayon_Linux_15.04_amd64_KDE.iso that I downloaded using BitTorrent, and whose md5 checksum and info hash match as given on the Sabayon website, fail to boot. These iso images fail with several repeating errors that talk about "SQUASHFS error: Unable to read inode ******". I have tried booting with these iso images on a virtual machine I built in VirtualBox. I even burned the 15.04 version to a DVD and tried booting. It is the same errors with SQUASHFS unable to read.

However, I have an older version of Sabayon_Linux_14.10_amd64_GNOME.iso that boots completely fine in a virtual machine or even on a DVD media.

Is any one else facing the same problems?

Please look at the screenshot obtained off a virtual machine. I am booting here using the iso image right off the hard drive.

Just tried Sabayon_Linux_15.04_amd64_Minimal.iso. I noticed the same issue with this one as well.

well you can try also to check the squashfs livecd image
Checking the integrity of a LiveDVD/CD

you can do that online, from livedvd session, or offline by downloading and mounting the iso and checking the livecd.squashfs.sha256 checksum against livecd.squashfs image

Many people reported this problem, I think it is a regression/bug caused by the latest kernel version.

- All iso images are affected.
- It only happens in Virtualbox or Qemu.

Problem solved with this commit.

workaround is to add this bootflag:

Code: Select all
