Thread: wrong checksums on main page, good on non ssl mirror

  1. #1

    Default wrong checksums on main page, good on non ssl mirror

    i just downloaded the image
    openSUSE-Tumbleweed-GNOME-Live-x86_64-Snapshot20171107-Media.iso

    from 2 different locations:

    1 main page: http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/iso/openSUSE-Tumbleweed-GNOME-Live-x86_64-Current.iso
    2 mirror: http://ftp.icm.edu.pl/pub/Linux/opensuse/tumbleweed/iso/openSUSE-Tumbleweed-GNOME-Live-x86_64-Snapshot20171107-Media.iso

    i also downloaded sha256 from main page: http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/iso/openSUSE-Tumbleweed-GNOME-Live-x86_64-Current.iso.sha256
    gpg signatures are ok, but checksums are wrong

    wrong sums stated in files:
    8c5a546c387ab61bdedb9ea7e03604f1bd00a8cb5c729e9894beb1b8919f9878
    but in fact they are e9468e6691c0da799c5c4b841f400321eee50a2d669ebddb97c8280ff1b5c015 as stated on non ssl mirror page: http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/iso/openSUSE-Tumbleweed-GNOME-Live-x86_64-Snapshot20171107-Media.iso?mirrorlist

    but the mirror page provides just sha256 with any signature

    Depending upon when the mirrors updated... they might not have been the same snapshot. From the main download page "current" might have been *Snapshot20171108*

    As I posted in another recent Forum thread,
    Those are two different images, so no wonder the checksum won't match(You'll need to download a different checksum for the "Snapshot" image).

    "Current" is the main officially released image.
    "Snapshot" is an intermediate image released between official images.

    For the checksum you're comparing, you have to compare two "Current" images, possibly downloaded as close to the same time as possible.
