How do I compare md5sums of directories (and of course everything in it)?


Yes, how do I generate an md5sum signature of a directory and everything in it using the md5sum command?

The command below will give you a md5sum hash for everything in the '/etc' directory.
Code:
find /etc -exec md5sum {} \;
