    That's basically not needed, because they are embeeded. Same for nvidia installers and every other self extracting package based on makeself. You could only use it to verify that ati replaced the installer later than official release, that was rarely done when there have been missing control files and such things.

    Not true. While it may be good for file/download integrity checking, it does nothing for detecting tampering/haxoring. The bad guy could change the whole package to whatever he wanted, and changed the embedded checksum.

    Now, i'm not so paranoid that I think anyone would ever attempt such a complicated man in the middle attack... none the less, its good to have an external checksum.

    I have got a script to repackage ati installers I can even change the compression. But it is very unlikely that somebody exchanges the file on the ati server.

    The file size of my old copy from 24 Oct is 122029803 byte while the new copy is 122028975 byte. 828 bytes discrepancy.

    Two files has been updated/changed. The signature file (common/etc/ati/signature) has been changed and common/etc/ati/control has been changed.
