    Knoppix 5.0 md5sum


    Hello,
    I downloaded KNOPPIX V5.0DVD-2006-02-25-EN.iso via bittorrent (using Azureus ) today. It took me 12 hours to download 3.87 Gb dvd iso.
    But my md5sum is : c324e6103db11f49b1742c057e0d6b8d
    instead of what is posted on LinuxTracker.org at:

    http://linuxtracker.org/torrents-details.php?id=1645

    which displays this torrent hash as: 64d8c17306496050f9c0e6ee38d58ebe726df5ff

    I burned this iso and it is working fine as live distro. I haven't tried to install
    it on hd yet.
    During boot process you have to hit F3 button and type "knoppix lang=us screen=1024x768"
    to choose desired language and screen resolution.

    I don't think that the "Info Hash" means MD5 of the downloaded ISO; and anyhow I think BitTorrent checks downloaded files for integrity

    Red face That's right!

    You got the same value I did, so I think we can take it as correct. And I also believe spoon is correct about torrent integrity-checking; it would not work without it, IMHO.

    The info_hash is completely different from the md5. The info_hash is used by the torrent client (uTorrent, Azureus, bittorrent) to make sure that the file is legit.

    We try to include the md5 for most of the iso files we have as torrents as well.
