Md5sum ?


Hello

I downloaded the Limbo from ftp.redhat.com. The last file is called MD5SUm(given below). What is the purpose of MD5sum file?

66f7308e17713b32147d469741a81992 limbo-i386-disc1.iso
6fcf44fb96460bc469e1d75e862d721a limbo-i386-disc2.iso
6818661ba15c2a0529d03ceeb12b77a0 limbo-i386-disc3.iso
f06fe629dc4b49381fea01d9c0427139 limbo-i386-disc4.iso
94e456b728297d75037f5e6a9f0f1f99 limbo-i386-disc5.iso



Thanks a lot

If you run the program "md5sum" on the ISO image, it should give the same number as listed there.

If the number differs, it means you have a corrupted download.

To verify your downloads are correct, run
md5sum /path/to/limbo-i386-disc1.iso
and check the output with the string in md5sum file in this case
it should match with 66f7308e17713b32147d469741a81992
Run md5sum for every file you downloaded to see if they are what they claim they are.

in mandrake 9.0, is there a seperate program called md5sum, or is it just accessed from within a terminal?
