Some bugs such as bug #716898 are trivial to fix, if we can confirm the situation with an original CD/DVD.

Brainstorming for the checksum

A checksum can indicate, if the developer uses the same media as the user who reports a bug. A user can also verify the media. Broken media, or different release can result in strange bugs which are hard to track.

Requirements on the checksum:

  • all users and developers should be able to generate and verify the checksum
  • the checksum does not need to be secure. Just want to check if we have the right CD at hand.
  • md5 is probably strong enough and short
  • checksum must be independent of the user environment (i.e. localization)
  • checksum method must work on media with copyright protection

Ideas:

  • user $find -printf "%P\0%s\0" | md5sum
  • user $isoinfo
