Slack, x86_32 MD5 doesn't match with ISO img. from torrent.


MD5 value of slackware-14.2-install-dvd.iso (size shown on disc 2,748,416 KB) I get using WinMD5Free on xp, is 6c43c62e892c264ea9a973979fa67a69 but the value shown in https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackw...ll-dvd.iso.md5 is, 84c10fb0cf77b41cbfa862ae3f4ce906.

I used Tixati client.
What went wrong?

Where did you get the torrent file?

Alternatively just download from one of the official mirrors, that's what I do. It won't take long.

This is my iso file:
Code:
-r--r--r-- 1 hartman beheer 2814377984 2016-07-01 01:18:03 slackware-14.2-install-dvd.iso
(exact to the byte)
and the md5sum is indeed 84c10fb0cf77b41cbfa862ae3f4ce906
so something is wrong either with your iso file or the program you used to get the md5sum.

PS: I kept all of the iso files for Slackware from 7.0 onwards, although I admit that 7.1 was the first I ever installed at HOME.

Hello vectrum,

I've just downloaded slackware-14.2-install-dvd.iso using transmission-cli like that:
Code:
transmission-cli slackware-14.2-install-dvd.torrent
and I also got expected checksum:
Code:
$ md5sum ~/Downloads/slackware-14.2-iso/slackware-14.2-install-dvd.iso
84c10fb0cf77b41cbfa862ae3f4ce906  /home/ja/Downloads/slackware-14.2-iso/slackware-14.2-install-dvd.iso
Check if file you downloaded is really iso:
Code:
$ file ~/Downloads/slackware-14.2-iso/slackware-14.2-install-dvd.iso
/home/ja/Downloads/slackware-14.2-iso/slackware-14.2-install-dvd.iso: DOS/MBR boot sector ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data (DOS/MBR boot sector) 'SlackDVD' (bootable); partition 1 : ID=0x17, active, start-CHS (0x0,0,1), end-CHS (0x3ff,63,32), startsector 0, 5496832 sectors
and that it has correct size:
Code:
$ stat --format=%s ~/Downloads/slackware-14.2-iso/slackware-14.2-install-dvd.iso
2814377984

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

Previous iso img was a corrupt one as your responses made sure of it so I've downloaded another
from http://slackware.uk/slackware/slackw...nstall-dvd.iso and it's md5sum val is 84c10fb0cf77b41cbfa862ae3f4ce906.

Thanks ehartman and average_user for letting me see your size (on disc) of the image in bytes as it made me confirmed in the first place.

I wish I had listened to Lysander666.
