Older MD5SUM for Slackeware-current iso


Hi all,

Does anyone have the MD5SUM for an older image from this site please?

http://bear.alienbase.nl/mirrors/sla...4-current-iso/

I would need to check the signature for an image which I have downloaded earlier from the site (23/may 2019).

Thanks

That image is out-of-date anyway, so just download the newest image now and check it straight after that (with its check file).
-current iso.s live only about a week, so there are 100's (if not thousand's) of older images around, each with their own (and different MD5sum.
I don't think even AlienBob himself will keep older MD5sum files around

Is there a git commit history with the MD5sum somewhere?

They are transients as far as I am concerned. The MD5SUM file gets created along with the ISO. They are refreshed and backups are never stored.

First of all thanks for the responses.
Unfortunately this is not very good news. I spent weeks to tune the new OS till it was working properly... and I will need to reinstall it now

Anyway, it's my bad I know.

You have that ISO still and you used it before to install Slackware? You do not need the MD5SUM file to use it again.

I used this iso only once.

Does anyone have any idea why I am getting this (this is the OS installed from that iso)?

upgradepkg --reinstall ./a/pkgtools-15.0-noarch-23.txz

Error: there is no installed package named pkgtools-15.0-noarch-23.
(looking for /var/lib/pkgtools/packages/pkgtools-15.0-noarch-23)
When I check that location I can see only SBo packages in /var/lib/pkgtools/packages.

You probably installed with an older version of pkgtools, that still stored all info
about installed packages in /var/log/packages
A newer version of pkgtools should move all of them into th /var/lib/pkgtools/packages
(or you could do that by hand). Note that the "install" scripts have moved too, they
used to be in /var/log/scripts and now are in /var/lib/pkgtools/scripts

From the ChangeLog for -current:
Quote:
Thu Jun 21 22:58:42 UTC 2018
a/pkgtools-15.0-noarch-20.txz: Rebuilt.
Move pkgtools database to /var/lib/pkgtools/.
Move removed logs to /var/log/pkgtools/.
