HOWTO generate set of MD5sums

Postby pgmer6809 on Wed Feb 13, 2013 6:59 am

As part of the .iso file for Nadia there are two text files (look the same) that have an md5sum for each of the files in the iso.
(at least I assume it is for each file. There are a lot of them. with complete path names. )
e.g.
8fd3679ef8b6edcf53cf4a07aefa859e ./install/mt86plus
e18e311de072fdb8cd481d2b273940bb ./boot/grub/font.pf2
c67bcf93aa7bddaa90d9475b0d4b9f3b ./boot/grub/x86_64-efi/ntfs.mod
...... etc. for a total of 224 lines.


Is there some way I can generate my own set of md5 sums in the same format and the same order as the ones in those files so I can then run a diff on them?

This is easy.
md5sum -c md5sums.txt
will use the info in md5sums.txt (created by md5sum) to check that the hashes are correct.
