I do not have any software to create a checksum. But, it is downloaded from the LO servers, so they have them for you. On the green button for the downloading of the ISO files, there is an "Info" text. You click on that text and you should get a page showing mirrors for the files and their checksums.

I would not download the 3.5.6 version. IT has a "bug" in the download page that involves the Windows files. I did not upload the modified version, since it was too close to the 3.5.7 release and having the 3.5.6 version uploaded [take 9-10 hours on my part to upload a full DVD ISO file] and then in a week or so the 3.5.7 DVD will be listed as the current version. It seemed not doable to just upload the 3.5.6 version "fix" when 3.5.7 was so close. Actually I just found the "bug" about a week ago, a few days before 3.5.7 was released to the public.

As soon as I downloaded all of the 90+ 3.5.7 needed install files , I created the 3.5.7 DVD ISO file and uploaded it to the "holding server" to wait till the conference was over so the person would have it available to do the move to the download server[s]. Then it was up to the mirrors to get the new folder[s]/file[s] sync-ed up and then the new ISO file will be available to the public for downloading.

In a few days the 3.5.7 DVD will be on the LO servers. With the conference going on, the person who moves the ISO file to the proper server and folder was not available to do the move.

But it will happen in a few days, hopefully.  The exact date is not known.

This should be the direct link to the 3.5.7 DVD download page.

downloading the Windows version for your wife's computer, just use LO's download page. It will be quicker. If you want to install the 3.5.6 version, you will find it here

or here

Hi :)
Don't worry about checking it. The best way to know is to burn the dvd and then see if it works :(

The NA team doesn't know how to generate the checksums.  They keep asking how to generate them but 
no-one helps them.  I don't know either, just in case you wondered.

If you could point them to some documentation or help them learn how to generate md5sums or Sha or 
whatever then that would be a huge help.
Apols and regards from
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] North American DVD 3.5.6

I just downloaded the DVD mentioned in the Subject. I want to verify
the download is good but have not found a location on the North
American website to get the checksums.

K3B says there is an MD5 checksum of:


Is this correct?

Shouldn't the checksums be available on the website.

i already use LibreOffice on My Linux base system. See Signature.

I now want to put it on my wife's Win 7 system.
