where is the dvd ISO image?

I am trying to download http or ftp 64bit DVD ISO image and it is a bad link.



The webpage at http://mirrors.med.harvard.edu/opensuse/distribution/11.1/iso/openSUSE-11.1-DVD-x86_64.iso might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.

and I don’t know what an md5 is :frowning:

i don’t know what’s going on with the computer from where you try to download the image, but the link you posted works for me.

An MD5 is a Checksum, that is generated (there are different procedures) together with the iso-file and can be compared to the “should-be” MD5-Sum.

In this case you use it to check if the downloaded iso-file has been transfered right.
To check this:

  1. Download the MD5 and the iso-file.
  2. Open the iso-file (under openSUSE e.g. in k3b). The MD5-Checksum is generated automatically.
  3. Compare it to the code in the MD5-file.

odd, none of my browsers will get that file. I can browse to the directory but not get that file.

Did you try my suggestio



There are several free Windows utilities which will do an md5sum (checksum) for you. Google will return several hits. I’ve used a couple that have a gui, there are others that run from the shell.

I finally was able to download it using a link provided by another user in this thread. I just wanted to take a second to thank you for not helping. as a novice linux user I can always appreciate ignorant people who feel better when they passively insult someone of lesser experience on a public forum. Sure, I could google anything but just like you when you started, I’m just looking for an answer from people I know can help. maybe we should change every message forum on the internet so that when you hit the home page it says “google it idiot” and that way worthless people like me wouldn’t have to provoke superior gods like you to have to deal with us, putting us in our place for doing the mere thing message boards were created for; communicating.

thanks to those who tried to help, not only in this thread but the many others I have started.
