Requesting length of slackware64-13.1-install-dvd.iso
 
Hello :-)

I want to checksum a Slackware 13.1 64-bit DVD before installing but do not have slackware64-13.1-install-dvd.iso. What is the output of stat --format=%s slackware64-13.1-install-dvd.iso?

Best

Charles

You can download the torrent file and view the details in that file.

OR you can wget the .iso file to get the info then Cancel the download by Ctrl-C

I've done just that from
http://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub...nstall-dvd.iso
and the result is: 4371912704

it depends on who makes the DVD, when the DVD is made, and when you obtained your DVD. Alien Bob's mirror-slackware-current.sh appears to include the /patches directory on the install CD. So the size of the disk may vary based on time and how the install CD was generated.

You can however use the CHECKSUMS.md5 to check the sums of each file individually... If it boots and all the checksums are fine, you should be good to go.

md5sum -c CHECKSUMS.md5


This will output a lot of lines... if you end up with an error or a warning at the very end, you may need to send the output of the above command to a text file "> /path/to/log.txt"

Thanks all :-)

The .iso was downloaded via http://www.slackware.com/torrents/sl...ll-dvd.torrent by a friend when I did not have an Internet connection; he burned the DVD and discarded the download; I prefer not to download because my Internet connection is slow and I do not want to leave the computer running while I am out because lightening is likely at this time.

The wget method to get the length is neat, bnguyen :)

What i meant is that you use an app that allows you to view the details for that torrent, not to download anything.

For example, if you have transmissions installed, you can use the following to view the sizes of the files (and more than that) in that torrent:

transmissioncli -i /path/to/slackware64-13.1-install-dvd.torrent
