Hey there, I've been running R5B7 successfully for a long time, except for not being able to get mythburn to work. I saw that R5C7 had updated scripts to do with that so I thought I'd download it and give that a try.

Now before I mention this and get "just download it again" please be aware I only have dial-up capabilities and it takes about 30 or so hours to get an ISO.

I've downloaded the iso from the listed Australian mirror, but the md5sum does not match.

I've tried to find rsync servers to correct my download, but none seem to exist.

So, I finally found a torrent for the iso, and figured I'd just use that to correct my download.

The problem is the iso seems to hash just fine and tells me I've downloaded the file 100%.

I've tried checking the md5 in a windows GUI program, Fedora, in both binary and ACSII modes (just to check my sanity) but none match the 38970f66ec2c8e29467da02c70dae55f listed. I should mention that my KnoppMythR5B7.iso file matched the md5sum the first time and was downloaded the same way.

Please, someone save my sanity and tell me what I can do to fix this download.....

Sorry, there's just no way of knowing what part of the file is corrupt. Unpleasant as it is it's time for a do over.

Of course you could also explore alternatives like making friends with one of the closer KM users who has a high speed connection and get them to mail you a working CD.

No way. The amount of things I had to put on hold just to get the ISO far outweigh it's benefits.

When you say there's no way to confirm which part of the file is corrupt, that is fortunately incorrect.

rsync and bittorrent BOTH will perform checksums on the file and "fill in the blanks" if the file is corrupt. There ARE ways to fix this file.

I'll change my original question:

1> Does anyone have an rsync server hosting R5C7 I can check with?
2> If my torrent client (uTorrent) says the file is 100% complete and drops it in my "completed" folder, then basically, torrent is saying the file is 100% correct. The torrent checksum matches the file right? There's nothing I'm missing right?
3> Can someone confirm the listed checksum on the download page is correct?
4> If I'm still going insane, anyone who would like to send a "checksum matched" CD to Oakford (Perth), Western Australia (for a fee if you wish), could you please reply to this post.

Didn't you try that already? At least with bit torrent? I did suggest using physical media for a reason. (I think the appropriate Classic CS quote is "Never under estimate the bandwith of a station wagon full of mag tape".)

Yes, a different partial updater with a different chunking or different checksuming method for those chunks might spot the corrupt section or sections. But only if the chunk sizes are different and/or the checksum algorithm used is different and even at that this is a probabilistic game. This all presumes that there wasn't some kind of short segment problem (a pretty good bet here) which shifted everything after point X. The reason for doing an MD5 or better still an SHA1 checksum at the end is that they have enough 9's (99.9...% chance of spotting ...) to deal with this much data.

Hmmm, that give me an evil idea... Hang on and I'll publish some chunkwise MD5 lists which will let you do a binary search down to the 1-2 hour range.

Here you go. Split your ISO into 16Mb chunks and let me know which ones don't match, then I'll split those down to half Mb chunks.

tjc - you're a devilishly evil man - I like it.

I just got called away on a job and HAVE to leave now.

However, as soon as I get back I'll do the split as per your instructions and post the results.

Sorry to do this to you, but I need the money, it's my job.

I promise as soon as I get back (this afternoon my time), I'll continue.

As you can see, chunk 33 is stuffed (I've marked it). BitTorrent did not fix it.

When I had this in the past (only twice - with Fedora DVD downloads), rsync fixed it.

I guess BitTorrent doesn't (this is the first time Ive tried BitTorrent for fixing downloads.

I guess unless there is an rsync server that I don't know about, someone can post me the CD, or you'd be kind enough to post or split chunk 33 down further I'm still screwed.

Thanks for your help so far. At least I've learned BitTorrent, contrary to what is posted on the internet, cannot fix a broken download.

I would have thought it does a complete hash check on each chunk (like rsync does) but obviously it doesn't.

Well here's one simple possibility, truncate the file at the last known good chunk and resume from there. In this case that means you're 75% of the way there. A 7.5 hour DL would still suck, but only 25% as much...

I don't remember enough about the details of bit torrent to know if it's possible but if the "neded chunk list" is an external file, the possibility of hacking it exists. Just generate one that lists the good chinks as "have" and bad one as "don't have". We could also play divide and conquer a bit more and possibly get the chunk size way down to something manageable.

We're down to about 5Gb.

The culprit is

e48966d03eb0dba101ecffa740f61fc0 KnoppMythR5C7.iso.33.10

This is the only one that's wrong at my end.

Would that be too big to send to my gmail address?

Thank you kind sir.

I managed to uudecode and get a prefect MD5SUM.

Then it was just a matter of catting the files together a section at a time, while checking the MD5SUMs in between.

I now have a perfect copy of R5C7 with a matching checksum.

Thank you for your time, you've saved me another 30 hour download.
