Recently, I've downloaded RH7.3 in .iso format, plus a file with checksums, from a mirror.
The checksums file is listed below:
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
Version: GnuPG v1.0.6 (GNU/Linux)
Comment: For info see http://www.gnupg.org
-----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
The download was done under Win :-(.
Each checksum line is identical to its correspondent from www.linuxiso.org
I checked the .iso-s with md5sum (or a port of it) both under linux and Win.
Now I am a little bit confused:
- under linux, the md5sum -c md5sum.txt command returned nothing: does that mean it is OK?
- under Win, md5summer.exe make another signature, different from the one in the md5sum.txt file: why?
And now, my problem: since the 1st CD works fine (well, I did not run the whole process, just verified the booting), what means: Hash: SHA1
? Was the checksum generated based on SHA1 algorithm?
Is the linux result of md5sum checking correct?
Thank you all
