Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Basic_Release_Criteria#correct-checksums release criterion. If you are doing release validation testing, a failure of this test case may be a breach of that release criterion. If so, please file a bug and nominate it as blocking the appropriate milestone, using the blocker bug nomination page.


This test is intended to verify that the posted ARM disk images match the published SHA-256 checksum.


  1. Download the raw.xz compressed disk images you need to test
  2. Download the matching CHECKSUM file. For example, Fedora-41-armhfp-CHECKSUM.

How to test

  1. Validate that the published CHECKSUM matches the downloaded disk images by running the command sha256sum. For example, you might type: <pre<noinclude></noinclude>>sha256sum -c Fedora-41-armhfp-CHECKSUM</pre<noinclude></noinclude>>

Expected Results

  1. The command sha256sum should return OK results. For example: <pre<noinclude></noinclude>>$ sha256sum -c Fedora-41-armhfp-CHECKSUM Fedora-41-KDE-VFAT-armhfp-20-1-sda.raw.xz: OK Fedora-41-KDE-armhfp-20-1-sda.raw.xz: OK</pre<noinclude></noinclude>>
