install-tl-unx.tar.gz md5sum

Reported by: Bruce Dubbs Owned by: blfs-book
Priority: normal Milestone: 10.1
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


I just downloaded install-tl-unx.tar.gz and the md5sum we have does not match. This is probably because the file is un-versioned and upstream makes periodic changes.

We need to either fix the page to explain the above or host the specific version on anduin.

Change History (2)

Looking back, in 9.1 the md5sum was followed by '(for 20190529)'.

And above that in the introduction we had:

"This page is for people who wish to use the binary installer to provide the programs, the scripts, and a lot of supporting files and documentation. The installer is updated frequently, so its md5sum will change if it is newer than what is shown below. Newer versions of the installer are expected to work with these instructions, for so long as they install to a 2019/ directory."

Looking at the current introduction, that text is still there with the year in an entity.

OK, I reworded the explanation and removed the explicit md5sum for this package.

Fixed at revision 24267.
