has given me the answer before on how to create a md5sum file before.
And I asked that question back in the 3.3.x version days.
I have printed your answer out to PDF and I will place it on my
folder[s] for the NA-DVD work.
I use Ubuntu 12.04/MATE [10.04/GNOME before this month] to create the
NA-DVD web site and the ISO file.
I use Kompozer and Kate for most of the HTML work.
I use K3b to create the ISO file
I use Filezilla as my FTP client.
K3b creates a checksum but I do not know where it is "stored" for my use.

That does sound hugely useful but please could you let us know the
name of the utility you used? If it was for a particular DE i'm sure
we could work out the name for another DE if we need to. Just
knowing the name of 1 would help!
Also any suggestions on how to use the utility? If it's command-line
only i think it's still possible even for us point&click users but we
could use a little guidance. Errr, i'm still not in the NA Dvd team
but am still interested in how to generate an Md5sum.
Many thanks and regards from
In Linux, it's called "md5sum". As for Windows, Google on "Windows
md5sum" to find utilities you can download.
Here's a list of the directory where I downloaded openSUSE:
jknott@linux:~/download/suse/12_2 $ ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 jknott users 126 Sep 16 14:41 md5sum
-rw-r--r-- 1 jknott users 4448059392 Sep 16 14:24
-rw-r--r-- 1 jknott users 4669308928 Sep 16 14:22
The md5sum file contains:
If I run the command md5sum -c md5sum, I get:
This shows both files match their md5sum.
If I run the command md5sum openSUSE-12.2-DVD-x86_64.iso, I get:
This matches the value from the web site, and shows the file is OK.
The thing about md5sums is that a small change in the file results in
a large change in the file's md5sum. This means that you don't have
to check every character. If a few at each end are correct, then in
all probability the file is OK.
As I mentioned, disc burner software will generally display the md5sum
of a file before you burn the disc. Just check that against the
md5sum from the web site. There may be graphical utilities available,
but I haven't had the need to use them as the command line utility is
so easy to use.
