Equo / Entropy / Spritz stupid Q?

Postby WarraWarra » Tue Mar 25, 2008 18:59

Not sure if yet answered but
if Equo does a download from any server with entropy folder / files on it , does it do a MD5 check on the file it is downloading to make sure it is 100% complete or is this a normal part of portage / inbuild somehow to check this ?

If not yet implemented then this could help with likely several bugs that could happen during a installs / updates same as with 99% cd / dvd iso images as I presume I have downloaded several almost complete files via portage a few times in the past and this could have made a few problems.

Ignore if answered / delete if answered already.

Yeah equo checks if the package is sane.
