Official testing Debian DVD images errors and ommisions
Hello there to the Debian CD team.
My name is Nick Barkas and I am
sending this email as there are silly mistakes in the dvd images
(iso/jigdo) of official testing Debian on Debian cd web pages.
of all, in the .iso web page in
is no md5sum file included!!!!!!!
What will happen if a poor man's 8.6GB .iso's get corrupted?
will either send you an email insulting you or he will not try official
testing debian again,as his newly written dvd's will be worthless.
PLEASE POST AN "MD5SUMS" FILE IMMEDIATELY IN "http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/weekly-builds/i386/iso-dvd/
Some guys (like me) are kind enough to use jigdo (with has md5sums inside), in order to save Debian some bandwidth.
downloaded the 3 .jigdo files and wrote the md5sums in a text file and
then I downloaded the smallest .iso
in order to md5sum it to see if the md5sum from the .jigdo iso
and the .iso from the debian cd http web page were the same.
TO MY SURPRISE THE MD5SUMS WERE NOT THE SAME!!!
f96e0d1d90ebea07105e039c1b34eedc debian-testing-i386-binary-3.iso (WEB page .iso)
(JIGDO .iso [# Template Hex MD5sum c3a11951ba773adadeb1cd6ed9060ec2[)
To me ,this means that either one of those 3 image sets are different or corrupted.
.ISO's ON THE HTTP WERE CREATED ON 19 January, WHILE THE JIGDO .ISO's
WERE CREATED ON 18 January.THIS IS CRAP,IT IS NOT LOGICAL
TO HAVE THE JIGDOS ONE DAY EARLIER THAN THE ISO's ,AS THEY NEED SOME
EXTRA WORK.IF THESE ARE DIFFERENT VERSIONS WITH MINOR DIFFERENCES, THEN
MARK THEM AS DIFFERENT WITH AN APPROPRIATE NUMBER SUCH AS
"debian-testing-i386-binary-3.01.iso" OR EVEN
"debian-testing-i386-binary-3-19012006.iso", FOR THE ISO's THAT CAME
ONE DAY LATER.YOU COULD POST THE FUCKING JIGDOS ONE FUCKING DAY
LATER.THAT WAY YOU WOULD NOT MAKE SUCH A MESS,FORCING PEOPLE TO EITHER
DOWNLOAD THE WHOLE ISOS OR DOWNLOAD THE OUTDATED(?) (DIFFERENT??) JIGDO
SHAME ON THE DEBIAN CD TEAM TO MAKE SUCH MISTAKES.IF YOU WANT
PEOPLE TO DOWNLOAD ISO's WITH JIGDO AT LEAST MAKE SURE THAT THE ISO's
IN HTTP AND IN JIGDO ARE IDENTICAL.
If the one of the 3 image sets is corrupted, then it is not a shame,
but some people on debian cd should not be there at all as they show
little attention on the post they are assigned with.
This thing does not occur on the stable (3.1r1) iso-jigdo dvd images.
provide new jigdos (based on the 19 January .iso files) in
now,I am forced to download the first two dvd .iso files from your HTTP
web page in Sweden (WASTING A LOT OF BANDWIDTH) and make an md5sum file
(HOPING THAT NO ERRORS OCCURED DURING DOWNLOAD AND THAT THE IMAGES ARE
