I'm getting a md5sum error with kernel-firmware. Tried another mirror, same thing.

Could not use EDIT so I have to post a new reply,

Well, I think I know what went wrong. I have a 64 system with AlienBOB's multilib packages. The multilib packages are blacklisted in Slackpkg, and Changelog shows gcc-4.6.2 which contain that GLIBCXX-3.4.15, so you have to upgrade the multilib packages as well

Now I get this when trying to launch:

Firefox:

Couldn't load XPCOM.
Thunderbird:

Code:
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/lib64/thunderbird-10.0/libxpcom.so:
/usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.15' not found (required by /usr/lib64/thunderbird-10.0/libxul.so)
Couldn't load XPCOM.

I had to downgrade Firefox, Thunderbird to be able to launch them again. Until then I have to find out what the hell happened..
Seamonkey works fine here on -Current (32 bit)
Since i don't use Thunderbird and Firefox, i can't reproduce the problem
have you make sure you have upgraded glibc as well? It's part of the big update today

ah... i see...
and unfortunately, AlienBOB's multilib hasn't been updated for now. Probably in the next few hours (hopefully)

Same here, Slackware 64 no multilib.
kernel-firmware-20120109git-noarch-1.txz.asc: md5sum

Tried on multible mirrors including kernel.org.

If anyone is with ThinkPad machine (well - W520 in particular), and Slackware64 is hanging about 6 secs into boot after this upgrade - just turn off ACPI (adding "acpi=off" to LILO command line), and it should boot. Have no idea yet what may be the problem here...

Here, "slackpkg upgrade-all" is also reporting md5sum error with kernel-firmware-20120109git-noarch-1 package - so I downloaded it through wget, and applied upgradepkg manually for this package.

I can confirm that after upgrading AlienBOB's multilib packages, I can now launch Firefox 10.0 and Thunderbird 10.0.

So for those using 64 bit system with multilib, don't forget to upgrade multilib packages as well.

No such problem here with my ThinkPad R61i. Maybe this applies only to the newer ThinkPads. Although I'm using my own kernel, not the one provided by Slackware.

Isn't this risky? The check is there for a reason.

Indeed, turning off ACPI on a laptop is very risky. I recommend starting a new thread on it with more info.

I think the comment above was not about turning off ACPI being risky, but about installing this package with wrong md5sum being risky. Yes - of course that is risky, it is up to everyone to decide to proceed this way or not.

Turning off ACPI may be risky in another way, regarding power management etc. I'm investigating at the moment selectively turning off related stuff, trying to isolate the problem. Will post here if I find anything.

The md5sum being wrong is a lot less risky than having your laptop overheat.

The md5 checksum of the kernel-firmware-20120109git-noarch-1.txz package is correct. And its gpg signature validates correctly.

It's just the md5 checksum of the gpg signature file that is wrong.

If the gpg signature is correct, why bother with md5sum ?

After some more investigation: adding just "noapic" to LILO boot prompt would make the machine boot too - obviously, much better than "acpi=off".
