Description Peter Kotvan 2017-04-20 11:18:38 UTC
Description of problem:
When writing an iso image there is a media check performed after the image is written. After writing a raw image there is no check. There should be a possibility to perform a check even after writing a raw image.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:
No media check when writing a raw image.

Expected results:
Raw image should be checked as well.

Comment 1 Martin Bříza 2017-04-24 08:34:41 UTC
Checking raw images is hard because there is no built-in checksum. The only way to do it is checking byte-by-byte against the image on the drive (while also uncompressing it) which would be pretty slow and CPU-intensive...

I'll put this on my to-do list but somewhere near the bottom.

Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-03 08:14:51 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '26'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-29 11:57:27 UTC
Fedora 26 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-05-29. Fedora 26
is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any
further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
