    Where do I find MD5sum in Mndrake 10.1 ?


    I'm still a relative nebie so please bear with me.
    I've just downloaded and installed Mandriva 10.1 (3 disc version)
    I can't seem to find the MD5sum program. I have used this before from a Live CD version of linux (Slax) and find it a useful utility.
    Where can I find it?
    or Where do i get it?
    and
    How do I install it?
    Thanks,
    G

    its a console cammand md5sum I think. if you don't have it then search for it in the install rpms program.

    if it still doesn't work the update us on the status

    Just do
    Code:
    md5sum /path/to/cd.iso
    so if you have e.g. MDK-1.iso in /home/jack/iso the command would be
    Code:
    md5sum /hame/jack/iso/MDK-1.iso
