JeOS - checksum won't fit...

HI, downloaded from three different mirrors (“pick mirror” from “Download” drop-down) the VMware JeOS image and the sha256sum file (from “Download” drop-down), but they don’t fit

>sha256sum openSUSE-Tumbleweed-JeOS.x86_64-VMware.vmdk.xz
898f4ba24089fdf5ce009f569ab448ab81b950da837acfd36df6523372b2b730  openSUSE-Tumbleweed-JeOS.x86_64-VMware.vmdk.xz

while the file from the “Download” drop-down menu


I read

ed5cc80a768338b092b714aa893caceb587c05d78e97c9d2f5b612dee8f844f6 openSUSE-Tumbleweed-JeOS.x86_64-VMware.vmdk.xz

Any ideas?

You method is incorrect, use the sha256sum file to check…

sha256sum openSUSE-Tumbleweed-JeOS.x86_64-VMware.vmdk.xz

sha256sum -c openSUSE-Tumbleweed-JeOS.x86_64-VMware.vmdk.xz.sha256 
openSUSE-Tumbleweed-JeOS.x86_64-VMware.vmdk.xz: OK

Or you hit a time when mirrors are syncing for the next snapshot, check the file time stamp…

stephan@linux64:~/Downloads/openSUSE-Tumbleweed-JeOS x86 64-VMware vmdk> sha256sum -c openSUSE-Tumbleweed-JeOS.x86_64-VMware.vmdk.xz.sha256 
openSUSE-Tumbleweed-JeOS.x86_64-VMware.vmdk.xz: OK

Maybe you download is broken?

hmmm, I get

sha256sum -c openSUSE-Tumbleweed-JeOS.x86_64-VMware.vmdk.xz.sha256 
openSUSE-Tumbleweed-JeOS.x86_64-VMware.vmdk.xz: FAILED
sha256sum: WARNING: 1 computed checksum did NOT match

Tried again, both downloads, now I get

Life is pain, but sometimes it works… :slight_smile:

I use a Download Manager, I do not use “save as” in Firefox.

Download Mangers often compare the files they download…
