Description Maurice Volaski 2005-03-04 10:00:57 UTC
I'm still seeing the error reported in bug 69596:

!!! Digest verification Failed:
!!!    /usr/portage/distfiles/mondo-2.10.tgz
!!! Reason: Failed on MD5 verification

I get 
8932c216860c944c42bd46cfaba955dc  /usr/portage/distfiles/mondo-2.10.tgz

and from portage
MD5 37de3d04369e187db68b72580b95306e mondo-2.10.tgz 2259862
Comment 1 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-03-04 10:30:51 UTC
did you rm the file in your distfiles folder and retry?
Comment 2 Maurice Volaski 2005-03-04 10:38:48 UTC
Comment 3 Maurice Volaski 2005-03-04 10:45:42 UTC
The problem is that the tgz file is corrupt:

>>> Unpacking mondo-2.10.tgz to /var/tmp/portage/mondo-rescue-2.10/work

gzip: stdin: decompression OK, trailing garbage ignored
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

I opened this one because there doesn't seem to be a way to reopen 69596. 
Comment 6 John M. Drescher 2006-04-25 12:50:08 UTC
Ok, It's been over a year and the mondo-2.10.tgz file is still corrupted in portage. :-(
Comment 7 David Earp 2006-05-25 21:46:58 UTC
I've been having the same problem lately.

('Failed on MD5 verification', 'ec3c6882d74f67828de3ab0faac71aab', '37de3d04369e187db68b72580b95306e')
!!! Fetched file: mondo-2.10.tgz VERIFY FAILED!
!!! Reason: Failed on MD5 verification
!!! Got:      Failed on MD5 verification
!!! Expected: ec3c6882d74f67828de3ab0faac71aab
Removing corrupt distfile...

Any word on when this might get fixed?

proposal of mindi ebuild
Comment 10 Bruno Cornec 2006-08-08 03:09:57 UTC
I propose to remove these obsolete and non-working 2.1x version in fafour of the new and latest 2.0.9 at
Comment 11 Bruno Cornec 2006-08-09 01:54:21 UTC
New versions available at
Comment 12 Bruno Cornec 2006-11-10 23:39:31 UTC
This bug should now be closed and a new version of mondo and mindi should be added from upstream (which I maintain) using the latest 2.2.0 (mondo) and 1.2.0 (mindi) available from 
I will shortly add the new required mindi-busybox package as well there.
Comment 13 Jeff Cranmer 2006-11-29 18:27:36 UTC
I haven't tried a restore yet, but I was able to successfully create a pair of backup DVDs with the latest version of mondo and mindi (2.2.0 and 1.2.0) on an amd64 dual-core system.

Ignore mindi-kernel, and use the command switch '-k /boot/kernel-2.6.17-gentoo-r8', replacing the kernel path with whatever kernel you're actually booting from.

I had to mess around a little with the ebuild files to get it to build (though only to correct a couple of minor differences between file naming conventions).  Looks like it is ready to add back into portage.

Comment 14 Bruno Cornec 2007-01-04 04:22:36 UTC
A newer version (2.2.1) with ebuild packages is available at
Please provide feedback and info for return back in gentoo's tree.
Comment 15 Wolfram Schlich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-23 16:51:43 UTC
Sorry, I don't see myself using Mondo anytime soon :-/
Comment 16 Bruno Cornec 2007-04-23 22:27:07 UTC
Too bad for me :-(
A new version is BTW available since last friday (2.2.2) with an ebuild available (as well as for mindi and mindi-busybox). I'm ready to work with a maintainer ir order to improve what needs to be done for those ebuilds, but I need feedback from some gentoo users.
