I got the MD5 sums of the redhat distribution and they
files in our site. I have put the file.
Cool. :-) I just hope that everyone who downloads from the site,
really does the checksumming before burning the CD(s).
What about the rest? Do you mean that I should
compute the md5 sums
Before putting up the ISOs for public download, they should be
MD5-checksumed so as to be sure that the binary is not corrupted
and to ensure that it is not a trojan.
(many sites do not provide this information)?
I am surprised to know that many sites don't provide such MD5
sums. _All_ mirrors are supposed to have the MD5 sums of the
goodies they host, especially source/binaries. Nevertheless, you
can get the MD5 sums at LinuxISO:
Please let me know and I will compute
it if needed; it is a very good idea.
Thanks for taking the suggestion. :-)
