Downloaded the linux demo using both Firefox and wget. When i run the installer the script terminates with the following error 'Verifying archive integrity...Error in MD5 checksums: ...'. Is this a problem for anyone else?

Here is the sum reported by md5sum:

the file linked from the main darwinia demos page is corrupted! I just re-dl'd it and compared to the one I got a long time ago:

old reliable file :: md5sum

new crappy file :: md5sum

server crash? bad restore? wuzzup? is it just linux files? I only checked the linux demo2 and 1.4.0b9

Thanks briceman for verifying this file. It looks like they had downtime last month on the 15th. Perhaps the corruption occurred around that time. Check out the Introversion news forum.

John has restored the Darwinia download files. I verified the 1.4.0b9 patch, but not the demo2-1.3 for linux. But give it a whirl again. Was a bad hard drive a few weeks ago.
