Checksums for F27 Spins? Anyone? Bueller?! Not easy to find. Still looking.


Title nails it.

I'm about to burn and install without validation. Won't be the first time. Just tired of running in circles. I did find the 26 Spins info, tried subbing "27" for 26 into that URL, but no luck.

Never ever have I found validation features so completely obscure.

Or I'm just overlooking something hideously obvious. But likely not as I see the question posed by others in my searches, just no fruit yet.

the file: Fedora-Xfce-Live-x86_64-27-1.6.iso

Whilst others may yet want to find this information, I'm personally over it. It might be good to leave this one open until someone does share the information I was looking for. It could help others. Surely it does exist.

I know when I do wide web searches for Linux things, I check first any LQ.org links! (thanks)




++++++++++++++ otherwise but not directly on topic of resolution:

I booted the live USB Fedora XFCE spin and didn't see anything I couldn't do without, or to intrigue me to look further. I do love the jellyfish background though. That's it.

So I'm going back with MXLinux on that box. SUSE won't install and that particular Fedora Spin just does't interest me at this point, plus I'm a bit miffed about wasting time looking for what is usually VERY easy to find and should be near front/center--but it ain't.

MX may be my next main Desktop OS for a while. [/hopping]

Obscure, really? Took an entire 30 seconds to load the Fedora spins page and find the "Verify" section on the right hand side...

here I will do the work for you, each spin provided:

Thanks but it doesn't appear on my screen. I see nothing that resembles checksums at those url's. I do not see the word verify at all.

Did you look at my screenshot? You will not find that section on it. Thanks for your input. I do see how it appears to other folks now. Do you see how it does NOT appear to me?

I have other games to play. I respect the membership here and try to reflect that in my posts, despite the levels of frustration we both might feel.

There is no "Verify" on the HTML as I see it. I attached a screenshot above... and I "allowed" the site over the script blocker and other blocker and reloaded the page numerous times.

I suppose I should have a second browser for stuff like this.

Clear your browser cache, try a different browser. Are you using some block all script blocker addon?

The data/page will be the same for everyone. The information you asked for is there on the site, not obscure, even includes directions on how to use it.

uBlockOrigin and NoSciptSuiteLite have been disabled for the site, browser cache cleared. Yet no thing where it should be. Going to restart browser and look one more time. Thanks for suggestions, will edit this post when browser reloads with result.

This is a first time ever issue.

--report after clearing cache and restarting browser with blockers off,
...and nothing. Well _every single thing_ that I see on your screen, EXCEPT the thingie I wanted.

I'm curious yet, but have no intention of installing Fedora anymore.

I checked the KDE spin, and had no problems. Right on the download page:

https://spins.fedoraproject.org/stat...86_64-CHECKSUM

is where I find it. but not linked up like y'all are seeing. I can work with those numbers. Just an odd way to dig 'em up.

I saw that page before but was looking with a different set of eyes. and "Validate 64" didn't look like the info I was looking for. Anyway, ever distro has to do things differently I reckon.

Marked "Solved" because the numbers are there under "Validate 64" on that other page. And apparently It's a rare issue, wait I'll try my MX install...Yep, nope. Brand new FF setup (first start) and "Verify" doesn't show up on the right side of the download page. Stumped.

Am only mildly curious why the other page won't show up properly. And I'm back to MX and simpler times.

Thanks.

Sure "VALIDATE 64" is where you can find it. Whenever you can find that tab.

But I wasn't looking for a pre-packaged special thingie with instructions and all that. I was looking for the label "checksums" or such text file as I'd gotten used to finding on very many distributions. Wasn't looking for any instructions and haven't fooled with "32" in all of my Linux days.

So it's still missing on the other page, no matter which machine I use here, and it comes in a form that I'm unaccustomed to on the other page where the word "Verify" that I was looking for is found.

Exceptions sometimes I am. Sorry for the troubles over something that looks so simple from your perspective. No more Fedora for me. It and SUSE are just huge and chunky feeling. Cheers. Done with this mess today. and thank you.

On a lark I installed Opera browser on the MX machine (installed today) and went to the same URL with no blocking at all.

Nothing different than my FF. It simply doesn't appear here as it does in the post above with the arrow.

Yes, I'm well over it but hope now that a learning opportunity is here-if anyone cares to pursue it or has the same (proven surmountable) "issue", and had gathered that last tid-bit of info.

One of them HTML deals I reckon.
