every slack10.1 I dl is failing md5sum check


I've downloaded slackware 10.1 (iso) from 3 different mirrors now, and it always fails the md5sum check.

I am typing "md5sum -c slackware-10.1-install-d1.iso.md5"

should I just ignore it? or could something possibly be wrong with my internet connection causing bad transfers?

It appears that you're checking the md5sum of the md5sum. Remove the .md5 from what you're typing.

Althought I do same as egag, what Seiken is doing should be fine according to md5sum's man page. Anyway, try to take the checksum from the iso file and compare it to the one inside the .md5 file instead.

when I run "md5sum -c slackware-10.1-install-d1.iso", I get this:
Code:
...
md5sum: ./slackware/y/bsd-games-2.13-i386-6.tgz: No such file or directory

md5sum: ./slackware/y/tagfile: No such file or directory
./slackware/y/tagfile: FAILED open or read
...
except there is much more before and after. I hit CTRL+C to get out of it and just copied a snippet.

when I run "md5sum slackware-10.1-install-d1.iso" (no -c option), I get this:
c973f78d0fa0c655455e0f7cd87d9e2a slackware-10.1-install-d1.iso

and when I run "cat slackware-10.1-install-d1.iso.md5", I get this:
d4f98d815fbd94488abf33f7db0df820 slackware-10.1-install-d1.iso

still no match :\

Try using the -b (which read it's as a binary file): md5sum -b slackware-10.1-install-d1.iso

i think it's a file-prob.
i just checked mine ( with md5sum <file> )against your md5sum.
so the file is corrupt or so...

maybe try to another mirror.

I got azureus installed now and am downloading the 10.1 torrents... I'll let you guys know how the md5sums check out on those.

downloaded again, this time from the torrent link on the slackware.com main page.

md5sums still do not match. is it possible something is wrong with my md5sum?

there's also a python script for md5sums.
it's in :

/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/scripts/md5sum.py

i had to make it executable first, and than it could be used as :

usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/scripts/md5sum.py slackware-10.1-install-d1.iso

maybe try that.

Are you downloading the md5 file again? Maybe it's corrupted

The md5 file came with the torrent when I downloaded it. Too bad I don't still have mine....


That said, I did just rip an ISO of my slack 10 CD (dd if=/dev/hdc of=~/slack-disc1.iso), and the md5 hash matched the one you're comparing against perfectly. It looks as though your download is being corrupted somehow, unless there's a newer image that you're downloading and the md5 hash is the thing that's wrong.

In any event, I'm uploading it to my server as I type this. I'll PM you a link, since bandwidth is at a premium and I don't really want to post it for all to see. It's slow (40-60kb is the norm; I'm working on improving that), but I can guarantee you that the MD5, server-side, matches the MD5 you're checking against. I'll even ssh into the server and run the md5 on the server to make sure that it's correct there.

thanks killerbob. I really appreciate that. is it 10.1 or 10.0?

egag: tried the python md5sum and it still doesn't match.

gbonvehi: the torrent had it's own .md5 included... but yes, when I was just downloading from ftp mirrors (instead of using the torrent), I did redownload the .md5 file every time.

Ok, Seiken... I sent you an e-mail with the link. For reference, it's the 10.1. I have 10.0 cd's if you need 'em, too, though I'm a bit unsure about whether they're both still good.

For now, I have to go sleep through a calculus class, so adieu.
