Check the md5sum

If the downloaded file md5sum, merge with the md5 file, the file was correctly downloaded. On Linux you can check the md5sum with this command:

$ md5sum image_to_check.iso

(check can require a lot of time)
The result will be written on the console.
With md5summer (486kb) the md5 check can be performed also with Windows.

liveVoyager ISO images are always provided with a md5 sum file, and should always be checked before burning them. This is a warranty because, if there are problems, these aren't in the ISO image file. You should check the md5sum in a console. Go to the folder where is the ISO file, and the md5sum file. Then paste this command in it:

$ md5sum voyager.12.04-desktop.64.iso

$ md5sum voyager.12.04-desktop.i386.iso

"voyager.12.04-desktop.64.iso: Error
md5sum: Warning: calculated checksum does not match!"

If the file il correct, the tools end with no message.
