Default Re: Bad checksum

Are you sure you ftp-d it in binary mode ?

What do you get when run run md5sum against it ? For me it's
Quote:
md5sum NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.44-pkg2.run
3a342f68d276d8fa020a1ae3145b9175 NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.44-pkg2.run
The script runs this:
Quote:
tail -n +6 NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.44-pkg2.run | md5sum | cut -b-32
6b36ff8e48f8adc80cd89b0d06d79e3b
...which, for me, matches the MD5 stored in the script.

I think Nvidia people could store an md5 checksum for the whole install file, just to be 100% safe. (although the first 6 lines skipped should not cause big trouble.)
