Good night everyone!
As requested on debian-user I have written a dpkg-checkpackages which
reads some Packages files and checks for its integrity. This should
prevent CD manufacturerer from broken archives.
It includes the following tests on every package in our Packages
. Existance of package .deb
. Existance of msdos filename link (can be suppressed by --msdos)
. Same size
. Same md5sum
If there is a mismatch it is written to stdout otherwise you won't see
a line (unless adding --verbose).
I'd like to have this script included in our distribution of dpkg.
Please take a look at it and tell me if you have any problems with its
use. You'll find the script on ftp.infodrom.north.de in
/pub/people/joey/debian as dpkg-checkpackages.
Thanks and have good night,
