    Default multiple checksums for ISO file

    Just downloaded openSUSE-Leap-15.1-DVD-x86_64.iso -- twice. Both times
    Code:
    :~> sha256sum /home/konsultor/Downloads/LinuxFeatures/opensuse/openSUSE-Leap-15.1-DVD-x86_64.iso
    c6d3ed19fe5cc25c4667bf0b46cc86aebcfbca3b0073aed0a288834600cb8b97  /home/konsultor/Downloads/LinuxFeatures/opensuse/openSUSE-Leap-15.1-DVD-x86_64.iso
    The sha256 hash values are different at two places on the openSuse web site:

    https://download.opensuse.org/distri...iso?mirrorlist shows

    • SHA-256 Hash: 609d0ad527ab13681b44e28326cd7941e87adfe8d522e2b31d0d7c71e9d92992


    https://software.opensuse.org/distributions/leap/15_1 shows
    For extra security, you can use GPG to verify who signed those .sha256 files.
    It should be 22C0 7BA5 3417 8CD0 2EFE 22AA B88B 2FD4 3DBD C284

    My SHA256 calculation is neither of these.

    Has anyone seen this or have I missed something?
    Thanks

    Same result
    Code:
    paulparker@linux-dkbo:~> sha256sum    openSUSE-Leap-15.1-DVD-x86_64.iso
    c6d3ed19fe5cc25c4667bf0b46cc86aebcfbca3b0073aed0a288834600cb8b97  openSUSE-Leap-15.1-DVD-x86_64.iso
    paulparker@linux-dkbo:~>


    Note the GPG relates to Tumbleweed
    https://download.opensuse.org/tumble...4-53674dd4.asc


    When unplugged the USB then plugged it back in Tumbleweed changed with YaST2 showing

    Code:
    File System:
    
    
    • File System: ISO9660
    • Mount Point:
    • Label: openSUSE-Leap-15.1-DVD-x86_64470

    Will now for sure when re boot to view results.

    Thank you. Found the correct check sum on the web site.

    That looks correct, and matches what I have.

    The sha256 hash values are different at two places on the openSuse web site:

    https://download.opensuse.org/distri...iso?mirrorlist shows

    • SHA-256 Hash: 609d0ad527ab13681b44e28326cd7941e87adfe8d522e2b31d0d7c71e9d92992
    That's the checksum for the NET iso, rather than the DVD iso. You probably clicked the wrong spot.


    For extra security, you can use GPG to verify who signed those .sha256 files.
    It should be 22C0 7BA5 3417 8CD0 2EFE 22AA B88B 2FD4 3DBD C284
    And that's the fingerprint of the GPG key used to sign ".sha256" files. In this case, I'll agree that the web page is confusing.
