As soon as your download is complete, you should check that the checksums match:Checksums are available for download as files: Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso.md5 (md5 hash of the contents of the iso image) and Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso.sha1 (sha1 512 bit hash).
$ # You need both iso and checksum file in the same folder $ md5sum -c Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso.md5 Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso: OK $ sha1sum -c Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso.sha1 Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso: OK $ # You can also compare checksum directly from this web page without checksum file $ md5sum Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso 304d7c54db560b04724a3487f218210f Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso $ sha1sum Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso 85676bfb6cc1a6f7716dcbcf24fc53ca33c0b2fe Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso
If checksums do not match, DO NOT use this ISO. Double-check and try to download again.
You can also verify the signature of an ISO. They are also available for download as files: Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso.md5.gpg and Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso.sha1.gpg. First you need to import the "Mageia Release" key from a MIT PGP Public Key Server:
$ gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys EDCA7A90
In response there should be one of the following lines:
gpg: key EDCA7A90: public key "Mageia Release <firstname.lastname@example.org>" imported or if you already imported the key before: gpg: key EDCA7A90: "Mageia Release <email@example.com>" not changed
Then you need to verify the signature for the ISO.
$ gpg --verify Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso.sha512.gpg Mageia-5-x86_64-DVD.iso.sha512
In response there should be lines like:
gpg: Good signature from "Mageia Release <firstname.lastname@example.org>" gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature! gpg: There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner. Primary key fingerprint: B210 76A0 CBE4 D93D 66A9 D08D 835E 41F4 EDCA 7A90
The warning about uncertified signature is expected.
