    live-usb-maker-gui 0.2.4
    iso-snapshot-antix 0.3.5

    At the end of creating the live-usb I get this error message:

    At least one md5 checksum did not match

    The iso was created with iso-snapshot. It does boot in VirtualBox without problems.
    If I check the iso with GtkHash, md5 and sha512 are ok.
    If I check md5 from the boot menu of the iso, I get the same error message.

    While running the live system, please run the following commands and let us know the output:

    cd /live/boot-dev/antiX
    md5sum -c *.md5
    head *.md5
    ls -lh linuxfs* vmlinuz* initrd.gz*

    If you want to save the output to a file you could do something like:

    cd /live/boot-dev/antiX
    md5sum -c *.md5 | tee -a ~/Live-usb-storage/md5-debug
    head *.md5 | tee -a ~/Live-usb-storage/md5-debug
    ls -lh linuxfs* vmlinuz* initrd.gz* | tee -a ~/Live-usb-storage/md5-debug

    I imagine this may be a harmless bug. Perhaps one of our programs did not update an .md5 file correctly.

    It was good to check the md5 of then entire iso but that does not guarantee that the md5 checks for the 3 files were done correctly, it just means all the bytes in the iso file are correct even if those correct bytes include an incorrect .md5 file.

    You could also run the same commands on a different system with the live-usb plugged in and mounted. Just cd to the $MOUNT_POINT/antiX/ directory and run the same tests.

    The created Live-USB does not boot. I forgot to mention that. So I cannot run this live system.
    Here is the requested output for USB.stick:

    $ md5sum -c *.md5
    initrd.gz: OK
    linuxfs: FEHLSCHLAG
    md5sum: WARNUNG: die 1 berechnete Prüfsumme passte NICHT
    vmlinuz: OK

    FEHLSCHLAG = failure
    die 1 berechnete Prüfsumme passte NICHT = the 1 calculated checksum did not match

    $ head *.md5
    ==> initrd.gz.md5 <==
    c199b1bda4b3d57ac09f4f8084c5d57a  initrd.gz

    After a system upgrade (to kernel 5.1.12) the error has disappered. The live-USB does boot fine now.
