    Fedora 9 checksum fails to validate


    I've downloaded Fedora Core 9 twice, but cannot get the .iso's to pass checksum. I'm getting the .iso image from Fedora Project and the sha1sum from Fedora Project. I've tried validating using the procedure outlined on the Fedora site, as well as with K3b's validation feature. It comes back as not matching. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

    How did you download .iso image? Fedora's disk-check feature in Installation Media is definitely buggy and gives wrong result ( Bad/corrupted disk ) most of the time. I am not sure about checksum though.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    The first two times I downloaded from the Fedora Project page, using the direct download option. The third time I went to the mirrors page and chose Oregon State (ftp.osuosl.org). That image also failed to validate.

    I would suggest you to burn .iso image and check if it works.

    Lightbulb sha1sum validation

    I suggest that you try to validate the ISOs directly from the command line. Open a "console" or "terminal" and change directories to wherever you downloaded your .ISO file. Once there, type either one of these commands after the prompt and press Enter:

    md5sum {DOWNLOADEDFILENAME}.iso
    sha1sum {DOWNLOADEDFILENAME}.iso

    That should work for you

    I ran sha1sum in terminal multiple times, and it gave me a different checksum every time. Something's amiss. Just not sure what.
