Checksum for Fedora core 5 etc.

Dear Friends,

I have some old Fedora DVDs such as Fedora core 5, 6 and 12, 14 with me whose checksum I want to verify but the official Fedora site does not seem to have the checksum for Fedora core 5. Can anyone please help me?

I went to the below page, which has a link called

See old versions of Fedora

http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora-all

But as I went about clicking on links one by one I got to the below page, which does not seem to have Fedora 5 on the list.


http://archive.fedoraproject.org/pub...inux/releases/


I also would like to know whether one should use only the md5sum and sha1sum commands to verify the respective checksums for a particular distro or there happen to be other types of checksums as well. I am a bit confused here. People generally say that an iso downloaded which fails to match the official checksum (I only verify it using the md5sum and sha1sum commands only as I do not know any other commands/methods) will not install or work properly on a computer.

Thanks.

The "See old versions of Fedora" link leads to what you want, but you went down the wrong path. The old Core stuff is in /archive/fedora/linux/core.

Use the one required for the particular hash. The oldest Fedora versions used MD5 hashes. Later on, Fedora started using SHA-1 hashes. And eventually, SHA-256 hashes.

Thanks a lot, I finally got it. I actually did go there but somehow did go past that page.

This is really good and meaningful info for me, thanks again.
