This download will not mount and gives error that it is corrupted, at mirror (other US sites OK): This bad DMG gave me md5 = c9ab584ee4d2472576345d09b875ad5c Should be md5 = dd8d15ddc09f482a2ed58ec774a053a2

confirming. Notifying the resposible folks and disabling the mirror until the problem is sorted out.

Same problem here. On Mac OS X 10.6.8 downloaded 3 times from

Each time neither the MD5 nor the SHA-1 matched and the Mac reported the data file was corrupted.

On the intel MacBook Pro

UPDATE: Solved my problem by purposely picking a mirror site. worked well for me

2 is just a redirector - it hands over the browser a mirror that is near the user. So it would be interesting to know which mirror was chosen. Maybe you still got that info in your browser's download history - if not, the mirror that is first in the list will do as well
