Their are two ways to perform this task: a.) calculate the MD5 of your GnuPG copy with the tool `md5sum` and compare your result with the published MD5: # md5sum gnupg-1.0.0.tar.gz This will print out a line with the MD5 of your copy. For example this should be the correct result: bba45febd501acf8e19db402506dae94 gnupg-1.0.0.tar.gz b.) Use `md5sum` to verify your GnuPG copy: 1.) Go to the directoy with the gnupg-1.0.0.tar.gz file 2.) Type the following command with the MD5 of GnuPG you saw on this mailing list or other sources: # echo "MD5_FOUND_IN_THE_NET gnupg-1.0.0.tar.gz" | md5sum -c" 3.) If the MD5 checksum is correct, you will see this result: gnupg-1.0.0.tar.gz: OK cu Michael
