NS 6.8 - MD5/SHA1 sum not available / mismatching

Hi *,

for the latest NS 6.8 version the download page contains the NS 6.7 sums both for MD5 and SHA1.
The mirrors do have the 6.8 sum files but there is a mismatch.

$ md5 nethserver-6.8-x86_64*.iso
MD5 (nethserver-6.8-x86_64.iso) = de0b62fe51395218423ae93550f1a556

$ cat nethserver-.iso.
fed42181727e5d4ab70fe33ac826ed17 nethserver-6.8-x86_64.iso

I believe that for a linux server release trust is very important aspect to consider: nobody must install a version not fulfilling this minimal sum checks. The release process must provide this for all versions, including the NS 7.alpha…

best regards,


Agree with you. The sums from the download page have to be updated.
The ones from sourceforge are OK. sums from NethServer mirrors aren’t.

BTW I liked your Hi * :v:


We will fix it in few hours, thank you for reporting!


Hi @vedragan, thank you very much for pointing this out! I can’t agree more with you!

As @dnutan noticed, files from SF are correct, but I forgot to update the sha1sum and md5sum files on mirror.nethserver.org. My mistake :worried:

Now they’re fixed on mirror. @alefattorini could you fix the web site links here, too?

The problem was born when I announced a second ISO here, to fix a bug


Done, enjoy! :slight_smile:


Hi @alefattorini, is it possible to link also the sums for NS7 alpha as per @vedragan request?

I would completely remove the download link to NS7 during alpha stage. I see a lot of people here start using it on production and then ask for support… I’m afraid they’re wasting a lot of time! :scream:

I beg to differ, Alpha is out just for testing purpose, people should know it. Do we need to highlight better such aspect?

Done, I just added a warning for alpha too.

I understand @davidep’s concerns. Great you thought about a warning note.:thumbsup:
Either way will seem ok to me.
