MD5 is a common way to calculate checksums to test if a file was downloaded correctly. You can read more about MD5 here

In the folders of your unzipped Labdoo images for cloning you will find a file MD5SUM. Use these files to check if the downloaded images are healthy and not corrupted by the download process as follows.

Check that the downloaded images are correct:

  • Open a Lubuntu terminal
  • Navigate to the folder where the files are located cd ...(path) [enter]
  • Execute the commandmd5sum -c MD5SUM [enter]

Create MD5 checksums:

Open a terminal in the folder with the files and execute in a terminal
md5sum * > MD5SUM (Enter)
