Bad Slackware ISO's?


Hi all,

I am having a heck of a time getting a 'good' Slackware ISO. Can anybody recommend a good site where I can download it with no problems?

I've ruined 4 CD's already!!! DOH!

I personally like ftp.kpn.be. I usually get over 200 kbps on average. And I also heard other users do too. You can also go here:

ftp://ftp.kpn.be/pub/linux/slackware/slackware-9.1-iso/

First I thought I've downloaded a "bad" iso, too. There were a lot of weird problems. Then I realized that I was using my old Slack 9.0 Boot Disk.

Do an md5sum check on the .iso file before you burn it to CD, that way it will save you from burning a corrupted file to CD.

Most linux distros come with an md5sum program that can be run from the command line. There are command line md5sum programs for Windows as well, but you have to download and install them, as Windows doesn't come with one itself.

You can download Windows md5sum programs
here and here.
