I have attempted to download PC-BSD 8.2 on four separate occasions over some months during 2011/2012 and using different mirrors, all without any success. Each time the checksum does not match the checksum number copied from the information prior to downloading.
This morning, I attempted a download of PC-BSD 9 RC-3 to test if the problem was with version 8.2 only. To my dismay, version 9 has also failed, the checksum not matching the one on the shown in the download section.
I am only having checksum errors from PC-BSD and no where else.
I have download FreeBSD 8.2 and OpenBSD throughout 2011 and none of these sites gave any trouble. I have downloaded from various Linux distributions in 2011, as a test, also without error.
I have been eagerly wanting to try PC-BSD since 8.2 was released, but unfortunately I am not able to and now I am still having the same problems with v9.0.
I've been forced to purchase a disc from a lab situated in Australia (where I live) but as yet I have not received it from them cannot seem to contact them which is a concern to me.
BSD is the only OS I am interested in and would like to run PC-BSD on my laptop for Uni.
