md5sum showing difference result everytime!!


Hi ! I am using mandrake 10 beta 1 and My md5sum verison is I think latest and about 5 or 6 .I just downloaded mandrake 10 beta 2 from wget and when I check the md5sum of it .It is showing me different result at each check .For example ;in the first time ,the CD1 ,CD2 were reported corrupt and CD3 was fine .Then in second time it report that CD3 was corrupt but CD1 was fine and in third time all of the download are ok and none FAILED but I lost track of how many time I check but it keep giving different result in each check .What should I do and was it normal?

Thanks!

Were you downloading the file again after each check? If so, then each download was different. If you do it again, and one of the CD's is correct, then don't download it again. Leave it be, and only download the incorrect checksums.

No ,I was I just downloaded once .I was about to download CD1 and CD2 after I checking for the frist time ,but before I deleted the file I run md5sum again .And since then ,I was running md5sum over and over again in same 3 iso image.I never downloaded again,those 3 iso file are the frist one I ever downloaded .I don't know what is going on.I mean I thought md5sum are just simple file with three or more roll of strings in it to check the other file string .what could possible be wrong.

Outside of my knowledge. From a programming perspective, it should be the same every single time, as long as the file does not change.

I think I should download again ,I used to download them with bittorrent but in this version of mandrake build python ,it couldn' t load broswer for bittorrent .The download work with bittorrent but when I minmize the bittorrent gui window ,it hang .So I did the download with wget but it strange to see md5sum reporting differently .My experience with iso download was never successful ,even with bittorrent, like all my downloaded iso CD are corrupt .But despite that I use them ,like this one mdk beta1;kdelibcore is corrupt so after I install the OS ,I stay in text mod ,download the frist ISO again and just install the kdelibcore after mounting the ISO in my harddrive ,I don't know what wrong but none of my download are successful .I just want to get it right this time .I should try again .

thanks!

I wonder if after you downloaded one of the earlier versions, there was an update to the files in the mirror, or if they were not finished downloading at first. To be safe, download the md5sum.asc file again and recheck a final time.

Other then that, I'd say its a good time to stop licking those frogs!

After my first response I downloaded and installed Mandrake Linux 10 Beta 2. It has 3 disks. I really love kde 3.2. I didn't have the problem you mentioned.

I donŽt know if this is a kde 3.2 feature, but try looking at a man page or info page from in konqueror.

For example, look at the bash info page by entering:
info:/bash
into the location bar.

I have an application launcher on the panel. If I need to look up a man page, IŽll type it in there.
