Found a copy of 17.30 on a 3rd-party site, and the archive is fine.

cksum amdgpu-pro-17.30-465504.tar.xz

Still would like a good copy of 17.40.

The file still is corrupt I can't extract it. Have downloaded multiple times from different browsers.

This is my first AMD\ATI card in a long time and it's not starting out well

I just checked, and its back to the same ~100MB corrupt file.  I still have the ~ 350MB good one on my hard drive, but it looks like AMD has a problem with how their download files are published.  My guess is someone manually fixed it after I posted about the issue, and some time later the corrupt file got refreshed from whatever repository AMD uses to manage their download files.

So i think the problem most people are having is that they are not familiar with wget and how AMD's website is designed.  Their downloads require a referer, so if you try to download them directly without specifying such, you'll get a partial, very small file.

I was just able to download 17.40-492261 without a problem and then extract it. (I placed it in /tmp)

~$ wget -O /tmp/amdgpu-pro-17.40-492261.tar.xz --referer=http://support.amd.com https://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ubuntu/amdgpu-pro-17.40-492261.tar.xz

With all that said, I personally don't agree with the download referer requirement AMD has implemented, but blame their legal team for putting up such a dinosaur requirement.

Also, below is an MD5Sum in case anyone wants to verify they got a complete download.

~$ md5sum /tmp/amdgpu-pro-17.40-492261.tar.xz

Already knew about the referer nuisance.  If you use wget without a referrer, you just get a small file (error page), not multiple megabytes as was happening with the corrupt driver file.

As of 2017-12-13 I'm still seeing the corrupt file when I try to re-download it.  If others are getting the good version, perhaps it is a CDN issue (AMD appears to use Akamai).
