How to verify the MD5 of your downloaded isos

The MD5 value is used to proof the full integrity of a file, in our case, it will tell you that the downloaded version of Elive is correctly downloaded and corresponds entirely to its data

To verify them, you need to run the command md5sum, like on this example:

test

If the code matches to the MD5 value that you have, then the integrity is 100% correct :slight_smile:

Thanks a lot, this saved me a LOT of headaches when I thought to myself, "Y'know, I have a terrible internet, maybe I should check the md5?" but I didn't know how.

Turns out the MD5 was completely different.
