Topic: checksum error
started by: alg0rithm
Posted by alg0rithm on Mar. 05 2006,09:02I did a hard drive install, and when I try to download libc6, lib6-dev, and the kernel headers, I get checksum errors/download errors all the time. I tried to download these files multiple times and keep getting this error?

Posted by rnd on July 11 2006,05:18The checksum error seems to occur because md5sum tries to validate the file linux-kernel-headers.ds instead of linux-kernel-headers.dsl (and similarly for the others).
While this is not the recommended solution, you can turn off the checksum validation by commenting out line 28 (starting md5sum -c) of /usr/bin/mydsl-wget.
(You should make sure that other packages validate correctly before you try this.)

Instead try another mirror. Use control panel to select one.
