No reaction to missing md5 file for extension
« on: February 10, 2009, 03:22:19 PM »
I don't know if this is the correct behavior or not, but I noticed that I had a missing md5 file for an extension I had loaded into the tce directory and it appears on bootup nothing adverse happened. The extension loaded the same as all the others without any problem.

Sounds normal to me. Checking every single time the md5 checksum of each extension that had already been downloaded would consume cpu time and not bring that much benefit.

Perhaps that is the rationale. In this case the extension was one I created and it never had a md5 because I forgot to create it.

It is normal. md5 is only checked upon dowload via appbrowser or tce-load
