I just tried verifying the 4.1.2 tarball in CentOS 6.3 and got the following
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
md5sum -c Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.2_Linux_x86-64_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz.md5
md5sum: Apache_OpenOffice_4.1.2_Linux_x86-64_install-rpm_en-US.tar.gz.md5: no properly formatted MD5 checksum lines found

The reason for the error is that there is only one space between the checksum and the filename in the .md5 file. There should be two spaces, or a space and an asterisk, like so:
