Bad Checksum?

Post by crazysquirrel » Fri Mar 15, 2019 3:31 pm

D/L says this:
5fa35143721701dcfde9c9d06db2e56b

And the checksum file says this:
8dfba77f96b2e497365d799d8d4267460450af90bf7ae1a1f59c7796ebdc5d31 MX-18.1_x64.iso

And Linux sys this:
59df65d198df6e664e8acf6569801697fe8bc2c5

OK what's the deal here?

None of them match.
Mx 17.1, dual boot with XP Media Center Edition 2005, core i5, 4gb ram, 2TB hybrid Seagate + other storage drives.

I NEED MULTISYSTEM just like the one I can get for *buntu derivatives. NOT THE ISO ONE.

5fa35143721701dcfde9c9d06db2e56b

5fa35143721701dcfde9c9d06db2e56b

So the md5's all check out

But sha1 does not?

When I right-click that ISO (18.1 x64) > Compute md5sum, I get the number on the ISO Download page.

And clicking on the sha256 link under Checksums and signatures downloads a file that contains the same number you posted.

Better to check the signautre, as checksums' can be faked too, signatures not.
If you don't know how to do this let me know, and I post
an "emergency" how do i check those magic signature files :bawling:

can't do it while on this wifi
will have to wait till I get home in a couple hours

I got a popup from the browser that the server may be trying to trick me.

Therefore it is safe to assume that they are watching and probably tampering with things.

Oh and this is a public LIBRARY of all places!

What Linux command is giving the one that doesn't match?
And Linux sys this:
59df65d198df6e664e8acf6569801697fe8bc2c5
The two checksums are correct...as far as I know, it's pretty much impossible to fake two different matching hashes, so I think the problem is with your command.

None of them match.

5fa35143721701dcfde9c9d06db2e56b is the md5 sum and matches what I downloaded from here http://mxrepo.com/Final/MX-18.1/MX-18.1_x64.iso.md5, and is also what I get when running the command below

Code: Select all

$ md5sum MX-18.1_x64.iso

Code: Select all

$ sha256sum MX-18.1_x64.iso

59df65d198df6e664e8acf6569801697fe8bc2c5 is the 160-bit sum (which we don't publish) and matches what I get when I run the commands below:

Code: Select all

$ sha1sum MX-18.1_x64.iso 
59df65d198df6e664e8acf6569801697fe8bc2c5  MX-18.1_x64.iso

I have right click checking of checksums. The sha 256 one matched except there was no confirmation on the site with the checksum like there is for md5
