#70 closed Feature Request (fixed)

MD5 self-check for install CDs

Reported by: pheet Owned by: tim
Priority: minor Milestone: 7.0
Component: Installer Version: 1.4
Keywords: md5 Cc:


At the beginning of the installation, the installer could check the MD5 hash of the CD it's being run from. This would prevent problems due to bad burns and reduce support requests on new installations.

There should be an option to skip the check, for users that have already validated the hash.

I think it would be trivial to code (relatively), and the benefit would outway the effort significantly.

(I believe the new MacOSX Lepard has this feature but I'm not sure)

  • Milestone changed from 1.5 to 2.0

When we modify the installer for 2.0, I'll see that we put this feature into it. It should be relatively simple to do :)
