Per the FAQ entry on checksum mismatches, please tell us what server the bad distfile came from.

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by Olivier.Festor@…

The server for both gnuplot-4.4.2.tar.gz and gnuplot.pdf are http://ovh.dl.sourceforge.net/gnuplot

I have tried before all the recommendations in the FAQ (selfupdated, clean, reinstall.

Problem remains

Removed ovh from the sourceforge fetchgroup in r76740.

What makes you think ovh has a corrupted file rather than this unversioned file simply having been updated? Other sourceforge mirrors have a pdf with the same checksums.

You might want to put ovh back in the mirror list too if this is the only reason you removed it.

Your change looks good for preventing checksum errors due to the unversioned distfile in the future.

I removed the mirror because of this response:

$ curl -I http://ovh.dl.sourceforge.net/gnuplot/gnuplot.pdf
HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Date: Mon, 07 Mar 2011 17:48:01 GMT

I tried several distfiles from several ports; they all redirect back to the main server with the "failedmirror" tag added.
