What is going on with these mirrors??!!!


I am trying to download the Redhat ISO's for x86_64
but every ISO I've downloaded till now doesn't match the checksum.
In fact they are totally different one another defferent!
And belive me I tried many many mirros and 2 different checksum generator programs to be sure.
Can u recommend me a 'sure' mirror, where I my ISO will be what I've asked for cos trully my patient runs out...

Thanks in advance
A correct-mirror searcher :P

Perhaps your downloading meathod is adding unwanted/needed extra information to the ISO files. Since you do not specify which ISO's your downloading I will suggest using wget to download them from the same mirrors you already tried and in case you need wget;

An example of using wget to download an ISO;

wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/4.2...64-bin1of4.iso

I'm trying to donwload ISO's like this one
FC4-x86_64-disc1.iso from frp turgaz(dot)at (I'm not allowed to post a link u know)

In fact I tried the above link with wget but the same.
Checksum is totally different.
I'll try now ur link although it's a kind slow one (<100KB/s)

Hmmm.... I visited ftp://ftp.tugraz.at/mirror/redhat-li...ra/linux/core/ and downloaded FC4-x86_64-rescuecd.iso as a test. The results;

$ sha1sum FC4-x86_64-rescuecd.iso
4182b99c5d97fd31be9a49da40a9c72d1dd4123d FC4-x86_64-rescuecd.iso

which matches the posted SHA1SUM for the file;

4182b99c5d97fd31be9a49da40a9c72d1dd4123d FC4-x86_64-rescuecd.iso
