comment scp does not transfer files correctly
Problem solved: following the indications in the accepted answer I check my desktop's memory and found out it was not working properly. I replaced the RAM and then transferred the files again: all md5 files verify correctly now.

It is the memory: I booted a linux recovery usb and the test immediately filled the screen with error messages. Tomorrow I will go to the shop where I bought the memory, maybe they'll replace it. Otherwise I will buy new memory.

I have now scp-ed from the laptop to the desktop on another disk (an external USB drive), and I have the same problem. So either both disks have the same defect, or it is something else.

I know. This has been going on for a few months. Luckily most of my important data is source files. I also have an old backup on disk which was done on the old computer. I might check it against my current data after I have solved this problem (provided memory turns out to be the problem).

Actually, I have just run another test, and one file that did not check now seems to be correct. Summarizing: first check NOT OK, several subsequent checks OK. I did not change the file nor the md5 file, just ran the check several times. So this should point to bad memory.

Thanks a lot for the hints. The partition on which I have copied the files is formatted with a ext4 file system. I am transferring the files to the same computer to another mounted disk, to see if the problem occurs again. After that I will run a memory test.

comment “No Ethernet card” while installing debian stable
Do you know where I can download a precompiled driver? I need a driver for Debian wheezy, i386, Ethernet Pro 100 rev 8 82557/8/9/0/1

@ECarterYoung: Do you know how I can specify the subnet mask? I have not found any such option in man dhclient.
