Trouble while building x11-image or console-image with bad checksum

Hi,
      I'm getting the following error every time I bitbake x11-image
and console-image, it seems that there is a MD5SUM mismatch for gdbm-
native:

NOTE: Running task 70 of 121 (ID: 2, /stuff/openembedded/recipes/gdbm/
gdbm-native_1.8.3.bb, do_fetch)
NOTE: The MD5Sums did not match. Wanted:
'1d1b1d5c0245b1c00aff92da751e9aa1' and Got:
'd41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e'
NOTE: Task failed: Checksum of 'ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gdbm/
gdbm-1.8.3.tar.gz' failed
ERROR: TaskFailed event exception, aborting
ERROR: Build of /stuff/openembedded/recipes/gdbm/gdbm-native_1.8.3.bb

NOTE: Tasks Summary: Attempted 69 tasks of which 69 didn't need to be
rerun and 1 failed.
ERROR: '/stuff/openembedded/recipes/gdbm/gdbm-native_1.8.3.bb' failed

          But, I've downloaded the file and checked with md5sum and
the checksum is the one expected, for some reason bitbake is obtaining
a wrong checksum:

catilo@catilo-desktop:/stuff/build$ md5sum /home/catilo/Desktop/test/
gdbm-1.8.3.tar.gz
1d1b1d5c0245b1c00aff92da751e9aa1 /home/catilo/Desktop/test/
gdbm-1.8.3.tar.gz

         I've seen in this mail list a previous similar problem where
the reason was that the hard disk partition had a problem, and the
solution was to build in other disk partition. Unfortunately I can't
follow this approach without buying a new disk, so I would like to
find another solution.

       Also, I'm not using any firewall and my hard disk is almost
new.

       I'll appreciate your help!

Thanks,
Alex.

did you try to copy the file you downloaded in
/home/catilo/Desktop/test to where bitbake downloads the source
packages? or just remove the file and let bitbake download it again

there are many other reasons why a package may be different from what
expected: onetime download issues are way more common than hard disk
failures, and are simply solved by downloading the file a second time.

Hi Elena,
Thanks for the advise!. I realized that the problem was a damage instance of gdbm-native .tgz file in my bitbake sources repository, as you mentioned. I fixed the problem by deleting this damaged file and allowing bitbake to download it again.

Regards,
Alex.
