how to verfy debian 7.0.1 DVDs?


hi,

..i used jigdo to download all DVDs of debian whezzy 7.0.1.
now i want to verfy if they are correct and all trustworthy.
which pgp key should i use to verfy the checksums?

Everything you could possibly want to know about checksums:

Hopefully...

If you use jigdo its checksummed as part of the process-

If all goes well, the script finishes by calculating a checksum of the generated image and telling you that the checksum matches that of the original image.

1. Go to the directory where is your ISO file assuming you have downloaded http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/...i386-DVD-1.iso
2. type sha512sum debian-7.1.0-i386-DVD-1.iso
3. then check the output against the file http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/...dvd/SHA512SUMS
4. so is should look like this:
a01ab43f552c1c444e9be3f2f61e5b9a28e7a8c70764a188161870b31279b8532b768b4f245c9992f1d76a3c72ee2c512d4e 2531ef7db5a5a0f3ef8b8bf080d0 debian-7.1.0-i386-DVD-1.iso


I have never used Jigdo as mention in the post so tried it now just to check how it works and I am surprised how quick it was, here is what I did:

1. to install jigdo: sudo apt-get install jigdo-file
2. run the program in directory you want the Image (ISO) saved to: jigdo-lite
3. it needs 2 files:
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/...386-CD-1.jigdo
http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/...-CD-1.template

4. then I have pressed 1 for 1 CD
5. enter for the mirror to be UK

and her is what it looked like at the end:
2013-08-25 15:34:33 (1.37 MB/s) - `debian-7.1.0-i386-CD-1.iso.tmpdir/ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/pool/main/e/expat/libexpat1_2.1.0-1_i386.deb' saved [140366/140366]

FINISHED --2013-08-25 15:34:33--
Total wall clock time: 3.3s
Downloaded: 10 files, 5.4M in 3.1s (1.73 MB/s)
Found 10 of the 10 files required by the template
Successfully created `debian-7.1.0-i386-CD-1.iso'

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Finished!
The fact that you got this far is a strong indication that `debian-7.1.0-i386-CD-1.iso'
was generated correctly. I will perform an additional, final check,
which you can interrupt safely with Ctrl-C if you do not want to wait.

OK: Checksums match, image is good!


So I have checked the sha512sum as well, to see if it worked and here is the output:

sha512sum debian-7.1.0-i386-CD-1.iso
f83ddd502c442a5fb44a618d0cd45b109b6d7db547194674d4408b9398691e96a35993636d7d54692c46005985b66f929de0 f51a6934b136213668e55ee82473 debian-7.1.0-i386-CD-1.iso

comparing it to http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/...-cd/SHA512SUMS and it is identical, will use it next time I download ISO images.

Any time!

And usually what I do is to D/L the iso and then fire up k3b and let it check the checksum in linux. Since your first time out, you probably won't have access to k3b, so I gave you the "all encompassing" solution.
