about md5 checksum on mini-KDE edition

Postby mcastel on Tue Mar 18, 2008 8:11 am

Hello,

it seems I have a problem with the download of mini-KDE edition: I have already downloaded the ISO a couple of time, from HEANET mirror (which seems the fastest, for me), but every times the checksum control (done on the downloaded ISO) seems to fail, in the sense that the code obtained is different from the one published in the website (namely, my code is"44315932a20e145982ffd8382e452ec4" but in the website the code results "43c61c91bc0ebb0ae548e9c51afab1ca"). Anyway, I have no errors during the download process. Is it possible that the published code is wrong? Or I have some errors on my side?

Thanks in advace for any hint!

Marco

I have tried both other two mirror available (Crete and Vietnam) but they are quite slow, making almost impossible to complete the download. Eventually I'll try to obtain the ISO via torrent from home (now I'm at work and torrent download is not possible because of the firewall protections).

Ok. Let me know if that works. I always use torrents. Much faster than http. And I'll add, I've never had trouble with ISO torrent downloads with Ubuntu. So, good luck:P

Never ever try to use an iso that you can't get the correct md5 sum to verify. If you do, you have no idea what you are exposing your computer and data to. If you are lucky, it just won't work right. If you aren't lucky.... well.... use your imagination.

Thanks Fred for your advice! anyway, for the time being, I made up my mind and installed the gnome flavour of Mint. I am a KDE fan from years, but I am also quite curious to explore "the other side", so I think it's a good thing to have KDE (kubuntu) on the laptop and Gnome (mint) on desktop...

In passing, installation in this new machine (an intel quadcore, 4 Gbyte RAM, 2x500 Gb HD) went very fast and fine! Mint rocks: IMHO, the best desktop distro in this moment ! ;)
