I've used a simple for bash, like this:
for F in `ls /var/lib/dpkg/info/*md5sums`; do md5sum -c $F; done
this work for all packages that have a md5sums file in info directory.
BTW, is there a official repository for md5sum files? I asking because
if I get cracked, how can I trust the md5sum files from my machine?
I think it would be good if debian site has a page/link so that we can
dnld all md5sum files from a trusted source and check against our files.
