I downloaded Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and the md5 showed 06472ddf11382c8da1f32e9487435c3d but on the source page hash shows 9fcc322536575dda5879c279f0b142d7 ubuntu-12.04-alternate-amd64.iso

Why is this mismatch?

What is source of image, that you have downloaded? – kubahaha Sep 6 '12 at 21:13

That is not the alternative CD image, but the 12.04.1 version for a 64-bit desktop. See

06472ddf11382c8da1f32e9487435c3d *ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso

Entering this hash on Google has quickly revealed this.
