Torrent or Checksum for 0810 Snapshots?
« on: October 30, 2010, 04:45:16 pm »
The snapshots located at http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/ are http downloads.  From what I understand (and have experienced with other large http downloads) there is a small but significant chance of data corruption when downloading large http files.  Torrent has built-in error checking to prevent such corruption.  If there were md5 checksums available for the snapshots, a user could confirm the integrity download themselves.  So, the question is:

Are there either torrents or checksums available for 0810 snapshots?

Good point. I will ask fluffy to provide md5sums with the snapshots she makes.

Hi, I'm in the same situation at the moment.
I've searched the wiki but did not find any md5 checksums.

Please put the md5sums in a txt file in the same place as the snapshots?

Thx,
