Hi mb0
Enter  md5sum /path/to/extension.tcz  and compare the result to  cat /path/to/extension.tcz.md5.txt

Hi mb0
Enter  md5sum /path/to/extension.tcz  and compare the result to  cat /path/to/extension.tcz.md5.txt
Which requires my eyes and brain to do the comparison, so on days when that sounds too difficult for me I let the CPU do the work:
    ( cd /path/to ; md5sum -c extension.tcz.md5.txt )

there is no gst-plugins-ugly.tcz found..

@maro.. nice

EDIT: i manually downloaded it, checked the md5 (it matched) and still got the error (w/ tce-load that is!).

I think the  "Invalid argument"  part of the error message might be important here. Hasn't this popped up before
because the wrong mount or losetup command was used by the system? Maybe try searching the forum for
something like   install Invalid argument    or    extension Invalid argument.

Try changing onboot.lst so it loads before util-linux.

I see no util-linux in onboot.lst.

To be clear, this message comes up when trying to install, and i don't think it completes.
