md5sum does not match download [SOLVED]

Post#1 by bwrw » 28 Dec 2012, 16:53

Hi all
I have downloaded Porteus-XFCE-v1.2-i486.iso several times over a period of two days and I get a4732f2558966a22fa9128efaa60e2f0 as the checksum ,whereas on
the download page it is given as 2bbda990619c7793670ef84518d335fb . Just to check downloads in general I downloaded "arch" and the md5s matched . Could someone
give some server addresses so I could try from a different source .
Many thanks in anticipation.

Do base modules checksums are good?

I have solved the problem!!!

http://porteus.org/downloads.html gives " Porteus-XFCE-v1.2-i486.iso " with md5sum : fcc08e7be8a34b02e193d7fb0b47fe7b


http://dl.porteus.org/i486/current/ gives " Porteus-XFCE-v1.2-i486.iso "

http://dl.porteus.org/i486/current/md5sums.txt gives a4732f2558966a22fa9128efaa60e2f0

So THEREFORE the homepage which leads to http://porteus.org/downloads.html is totally wrong ,
anyone using the home page to get a download would be 'barking up the wrong tree ".
Should not someone rectify this major error ?
