Hash CheckSum problem with liveCD 2.1.2



  • Hi,

    I have downloaded pfSense-LiveCD-2.1.2-RELEASE-i386-20140410-0523.iso from a few different mirrors along with their md5/sha256 hash/checksums.

    None of the checksums match what the gtkHash program I have installed generates.

    Can anyone please advise, I'm a little worried to install it if the checksums do not match.

    Thanks.

    If you look in the MD5 file:

    MD5 (pfSense-LiveCD-2.1.2-RELEASE-i386.iso.gz) = f020c4b03ae45eec13adc050d915aa5a

    The checksum is for the gzipped file not the extracted ISO. The MD5 matched fine for me just now.

    I see I have exposed my 'noob-ness' yet again.

    I did indeed run the checksum on the extracted ISO instead of the gzipped file.

    Thank you very much for clearing that up Steve!
