Hash for ubuntu-8.04.1-desktop-i386.iso

Asked by Maringouin

I downloaded the current ubuntu iso today, it's labelled ubuntu-8.04.1-desktop-i386.iso on my hard drive
but I can't find a md5 hash for this release, the last hash is ubuntu-8.04-desktop-i386.iso
the sum I get with MD5SUM on my downloaded iso doesn't come anywhere near the listed md5 hashes for 8.04
(I get c69e34e92d5402d1b87e6babc739f774)
is the problem my download or should there be a different md5 hash for 8.04.1 from those listed for 8.04?

If you downloaded the iso from:


Then the md5 hash for the iso you downloaded (shown in the MD5SUMS file) is the same as the one you show in parentheses above. Which means the hash file checks out.

The hash for the 8.04 and the 8.04.1 isos should differ because they are different.

Please report back here and mark the question Solved if this resolves your question.

PS :

c69e34e92d5402d1b87e6babc739f774 <-- You posted this hash
c69e34e92d5402d1b87e6babc739f774 <-- The original

=> OK.

Check the MD5SUMS file from the location you downloaded the iso. If you used the link on the main ubuntu page, it doesn't list the md5sums because it immediately downloads the iso, but you can get them from releases.ubuntu.com

Your question wasn't worded or detailed enough. If your question was "How do I get an md5sum from my downloaded iso to compare", then in a terminal you would type:

    $ md5sum /path/to/<iso name>.iso

It will display the md5sum, which you can then compare with the md5sums that are published.

In the future, please create a new question, if the answered question you are reading does not answer yours.
