File name in verify doesn't match downloaded file name for XFCE spin

#File name in verify doesn’t match downloaded file name for XFCE spin

  • I download an XFCE spin iso
  • When I tried to verify, the filename did not match
  • How to deal with this?

Please provide the links to the file downloaded and the verify link. I will try to test what I think you may have done but cannot be sure since no detailed info was provided.

Is this the page?

following the instructions there with the download link and the verification link one only has to download the iso and the checksum file then run (in that download directory) the suggested command sha256sum -c Fedora-Spins-38-1.6-x86_64-CHECKSUM which then uses the info in the checksum file to verify the iso image.

The file names should be Fedora-Spins-38-1.6-x86_64-CHECKSUM and Fedora-Xfce-Live-x86_64-38-1.6.iso where the CHECKSUM file contains the sha256 checksum of all the spin images.

Here’s the console, downloaded the .iso and the .gpg

lesatdgl@penguin:~$ cd Downloads

lesatdgl@penguin:~/Downloads$ ls

fedora.gpg Fedora-Xfce-Live-x86_64-38-1.6.iso Games.csv

lesatdgl@penguin:~/Downloads$ gpgv --keyring ./fedora.gpg Fedora-Spins-38-1.6-x86_64-CHECKSUM

gpgv: can’t open ‘Fedora-Spins-38-1.6-x86_64-CHECKSUM’: No such file or directory

gpgv: verify signatures failed: No such file or directory


Can I rename the .iso and have a hope of anything good happening?

  1. The checksum file does not exist in that directory. It must also be downloaded from the same location that you got the iso image.

  2. Once the file has been downloaded the instructions for using it are as stated above and as shown on the download site.

Once you click on the check button as shown in the above image then the below appears. Here step 1 contains the link to download the checksum file.

Thank you - it’s good for me to feel like a dummy, at least once per day

Just an FYI

Posting phone numbers here is a really really bad idea, as is posting an email address.

There are a lot of robots out there that can skim that info and add it to the spammers and phishers lists which result in a flood of unwanted contacts.

I suggest you edit the posts that contain that info and remove it as quick as possible.

Thanks, I just replied to the email, so how do I get to the actual post?

Thanks, I found the post and cleared the phone#
