Slax-5.1.7 md5sum

Filed under
WebSite

I recently d'loaded slax-5.1.7 and checked the md5sum that was listed at Distrowatch and found it to be incorrect. I checked at the Slax site to verify the error and found the correct one:

a716b9bc1a47c8afb4b25d40e77d2660 *slax-5.1.7.iso

Here's a excerpt from the Slax forum:

"Distrowatch does (again) link to an older version of md5.txt file (hosted on some non-updated mirror). The bad file is my fault but I can't do anything with it now. This confuses people a lot.

Would somebody be so kind and report the problem to Ladislav? (distrowatch owner).
100% correct md5.txt file is here: http ://ftp.linux.cz/pub/linux/slax/SLAX-5.x/md5.txt

Moreover distrowatch is using older logo for SLAX, I hope it will switch to new one sometime.

I hope this is the proper place to post this to get in touch with the temp host of Distrowatch-Susan Linton who is sitting in for Ladislav.

Thanks for the quick response I will pass it on to Tomas.

re: slax md5sum

He said he fixed it earlier this morning. The logo will have to wait for Ladislav to return. You're welcome. Smile

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

re: Slax-5.1.7 md5sum

Sure. Ladislav is on vacation, but Dr. Zhu is available, and he's usually the one who takes care of the release postings. I sent him an email on the subject. I'll update you as soon as I hear anything. He's on Shanghai time tho.

The logo might have to wait. I'm not sure I should take it upon myself to replace that file even if I have the correct file permissions to do so. Worst case scenario, I'll write Ladislav and he'll fix it when he gets back.

Thanks,
Susan

Linux 4.10-rc5

Things seem to be calming down a bit, and everything looks nominal. There's only been about 250 changes (not counting merges) in the last week, and the diffstat touches less than 300 files (with drivers and architecture updates being the bulk, but there's tooling, networking and filesystems in there too).
