1 So, after some additional tries I (again) hashed against a couple of recently downloaded files (f.e. Ubunto Studio, some smaller files I need for web-development etc pp) and the hashes are correct. (md5 as is sha...). So far are the mentioned 'hardware-faults' totally abstruse and further not topic related comments unwanted.
2 My intentions are clear- I want to install a minimalistic yet powerful OS (namely Gentoo Linux) where I work 85% of the time at the command-line and configure everything 'by hand'.
3 If that sounds 'masochistic' to some kind people who replied to me in the past well, then i am one :-).
4 I'd probably give Slackware a try too but I am totally away from 'proprietary stuff' and try as far as I can to avoid software what 'isn't GPL' or similar...
6 However is it interesting that I downloaded the files now 2 times and they have all incorrect hashes.
7 Before making any assumptions of the worst-case (like manipulation on the transport-way or similar) I'd like to bother the community once more with my matters and ask for help.
8 Probably I really did something wrong but I can't imagine that and tested all multiple times.
10 I used (like posted before) wget as the download-client and had in the whole time of download 3 retries.
11 Actually I am located deep into Asia (PH) and I am using a more or less slow WLAN_Stick as my line to the web.
14 Any suggestions?
