Opensuse md5 checksums s
Jan 25, · The idea is that as a user you can download the ISO and then run a tool which creates an MD5 checksum against that file. The checksum that is returned should match the one located on the website of the software developer. MD5 is one of a series of message digest algorithms designed by Professor Ronald Rivest of MIT (Rivest, ). When analytic work indicated that MD5's predecessor — MD4 — was likely to be insecure, MD5 was designed in to be a secure replacement (weaknesses were indeed subsequently found in MD4 by Hans Dobbertin). I guess that's why we have checksums! Thanks for all your help! I've tried downloading the Leap DVD several times from different mirrors on the mirror list, and every single time I have ended up with an ISO file with hashes that don't match the published hashes.
