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:
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.
