Default Have people been able to get good .iso's of Dragonfly BSD in the past month or so?

I just thought I would throw this out there and see if anyone else is having the same issue. I've wanted to give it a try after using FreeBSD for years, but not really liking the whole Oracle/ZFS licensing/updates issues, and being intrigued by HAMMER. The thing is, I keep downloading the zipped isos, and when I use bunzip2 to unzip them (or use Ark in KDE to open them) I keep getting corrupted archives. I've tried different mirrors, and checking back after a few weeks, and still can't get a good .iso to test it with. Am I missing something here, is a different command than bunzip2 needed (or a different Archive program that can properly read these)?

I have no problems with a DragonFlyBSD iso from ftp://ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de/dra...sd/iso-images/

The procedure:
  • Download the iso dfly-x86_64-3.4.2_REL.iso.bz2
  • Get the md5.txt and save as dragon_fly.md5.txt
  • Search the MD5 file for the file name, without the bz2

    $  grep dfly-x86_64-3.4.2_REL.iso dragon_fly.md5.txt
    MD5 (dfly-x86_64-3.4.2_REL.iso) = ec4e06ba7dd8ce2d85c93421a632d410
    MD5 (dfly-x86_64-3.4.2_REL.iso.bz2) = e32fe58ae415054af8587d846bbfab4c
  • Redo but now save to file MD5.txt

    # grep dfly-x86_64-3.4.2_REL.iso dragon_fly.md5.txt >MD5.txt
  • Unpack/bunzup2 the archive and use -k option to keep the original:

    $ bunzip2 -k dfly-x86_64-3.4.2_REL.iso.bz2

    You now have two files:
    -rw-r--r--  1 adriaan  wheel  770066432 Aug 13 15:01 dfly-x86_64-3.4.2_REL.iso
    -rw-r--r--  1 adriaan  wheel  231681292 Aug 13 15:01 dfly-x86_64-3.4.2_REL.iso.bz2
  • On OpenBSD you can use the -c option to verify the MD5 checksums:
    $  md5 -c MD5.txt
    (MD5) dfly-x86_64-3.4.2_REL.iso: OK
    (MD5) dfly-x86_64-3.4.2_REL.iso.bz2: OK
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump

That extracted without a problem, thanks for that. I've had trouble with that isc.org mirror lately after using it is my default for a long time, I think I'll shoot off an email and let them know about it anyway.
