md5 checksum for > 2 GB

I know there are versions of md5 on Solaris which work with files >2 GB 
- but many binaries and would do not.

Does anyone know the location of a source or binary (SPARC, Solaris 10) 
for an md5 checksum program which will work for large files?

I downloaded one binary but that will not open a large file. I 
downloaded another's source and that would not work either. I compiled 
some source  as 64-bit, and while that opens a large file, it gives the 
wrong checksum.

I know there are versions around which work OK, but I'd rather just find 
one, than waste time adding largefile support to an earlier one.

I'd rather just get one source or binary than have to install tons of 
programs I don't know, as may be necessary if I download the GNU 
coreutils or similar.

Hi Dave,
I use digest for my Solaris DVD downloads:-
digest -v -a md5 file.iso

Cheers
Richard.

You can usually work around this with "md5 < filename".

The md5sum which ships on the companion seems to work, and openssl md5
also is OK if you cat stdin to it.  (Well, I say this in the sense
that either gives an error and both produce the same sum for a 3G
file: that sum could be wrong in both cases...)

Thank you, that worked.

I had not installed the companion DVD, as I know often the package on 
there are quite out of date. But digest was on the machine anyway and 
worked well.

I did have a md5 program which worked. In fact, it might be on another 
machine and I can copy it over.

Well, I now have a usable DVD iso (verified with the MD5) for Solaris 
x86, which I'm seriously thinking of putting on my laptop, as an upgrade 
from Vista Ultimate.

ANYTHING would be an upgrade from Vista unless its Win95 maybe... : /
Re: your post of the other day if the URL at Sun is still unavailable
you could
try Nevada b70b which is available
As for md5 I used openssl dgst -md5 on the 3.3 GB b70b image with no
problems

The following Solaris 10 program should do this just fine:

	digest -a md5

I suppose we need a wrapper script called `md5'.  Otherwise, people
think it isn't there, and keep installing another one.

I commonly use openssl(1) from /usr/sfw/bin for this:

    openssl dgst -md5 file [file ...]

It seems to work with large files too, but now I know about digest too.

Thanks :)

[9fans] VBE 1.2/2.0+ functions for Plan9
Hello list, I know it's been discussed a lot in the list before, and scoffed at due to various reasons (having to hack to activate the VESA support in the first place, it not necessarily being SMP-safe and the fact that it's not accellerated), but I'd like to implement VESA support for Plan9. I got some tips to look in Inferno code, since Roger Peppe had implemented a VESA driver there. After looking through the Inferno source, it appears that any VESA code has been left out of the public source. I've tried Plan9 a couple times in the past 6 or 7 years, and have only s...
