Tried on multible mirrors including kernel.org.
i checked on my slackware64-current repository and it checks fine

Code:
md5sum kernel-source-3.2.2-noarch-1.txz
6fb1686488fa186c711230b835e43844  kernel-source-3.2.2-noarch-1.txz

md5sum kernel-firmware-20120109git-noarch-1.txz
7ca5512c5fef1690f255f8a7eb247a5f  kernel-firmware-20120109git-noarch-1.txz
it matches with the CHECKSUM file http://slackware.osuosl.org/slackwar.../CHECKSUMS.md5

Update:

it seems the files in kdei/ are missing, so the checksum failed because the file doesn't exists.

One file is considered bad, because it has a wrong checksums and that's the kernel-firmware-20120109git-noarch-1.txz.asc file, not the kernel-firmware package itself, so it's not a corrupted package

Maybe it has som,ething to do with this --> http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tem&px=MTAzNzk

Do you have those error messages? it's almost the same machine as you have.

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.

Great pointer, thanks: I haven't seen any of error messages mentioned in this article, but still - out of suggestions proposed there, it appears that turning VT-d off in BIOS is solving problem for me. I guess it's now awaiting for the next kernel update, and then turning if on again.

Sorry for hijacking the thread somewhat. On the other side, I'd say this is good example why long silence in -current, and then pushing number of important packages at once, is bad thing: I was supposing it's some sort of kernel regression, but when several kernel revisions skipped, it's very hard to find what may be the problem. Unfortunately, this mode of operation is seemingly a norm now after each Slackware release...

The checksum problem on kernel-firmware is also fixed in the latest update:
Code:
Thu Feb 2 15:07:23 UTC 2012
a/kernel-firmware-20120202git-noarch-1.txz: Upgraded.
       There were some reports of a failing checksum on the .asc (which
       did verify, so the package was good). So, we'll replace it with
       a new build to make sure that it syncs out.

When I do a slackpkg update, slackpkg upgrade-all, I get this:

Code:
No such file `kernel-firmware-20120109git-noarch-1.txz.
What I did instead is download the file from mirror and do an upgradepkg.

Perhaps, your mirror is in progress of syncing
yes, you can download the package manually and perform manual upgrade process.. it will have a same results

Should the newly added package gcc-go be added to AlienBobs multilib set?
