    Verify with MD5SUM

    I have downloaded the 12.04.2 .iso file but I am not sure what I am doing wrong here.

    Your help will be appreciated.

    TIA

    Re: Need a little help with MD5SUM please.

    Could you show what ISO files are in the directory?

    Code:
    ls *.iso

    Alternatively you could use TAB once in the correct directory

    Code:
    md5sum <TAB TAB>
    you should then get the available files in the directory, you can also use tab to autocomplete the file name

    Code:
    md5sum ub<TAB>

    Re: Verify with MD5SUM

    When it says <TAB> it means press the tab key on your keyboard. If it matches part of a file name in the directory, the rest of it gets filled in without typing. It's more difficult to explain than it is to do.

    Re: Verify with MD5SUM

    OK, I tried with TAB TAB and this what I got:-

    limeylew@limeylew-P9852A-ABA-753N:~$ cd ~/Downloads
    limeylew@limeylew-P9852A-ABA-753N:~/Downloads$ md5sum ubuntu 12.04.2
    md5sum: ubuntu: No such file or directory
    md5sum: 12.04.2: No such file or directory

    Re: Verify with MD5SUM

    OK, let's try a different approach:

    Code:
    md5sum ~/Downloads/*.iso
    That should at least get you what you need.
