Re: Why sign checksums, and not ISO?

Hi, By definition, it is not possible to manually set the checksum of a file, assuming you use a secure hash algorithm (SHA-2, SHA-3,...). You can see a checksum as a fingerprint of a digital content, or better, a retina scan. There were articles about the old md5 algorithm which has been compromise...

[solved] Re: dnscrypt-proxy sometimes fails to start during boot (ordering cycle)

[solved] dnscrypt-proxy sometimes fails to start during boot (ordering cycle)

Hello, Running Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit on a laptop with wifi, I installed dnscrypt-proxy 1.6.1-1 from the Software manager.
