Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 452727
RFE: SHA1SUM links should be clearly labeled
Last modified: 2009-08-05 14:43:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Need to add text to http://fedoraproject.org/en/verify that the links under
"Install DVD / Rescue CD" and "Live Media (both GNOME and KDE)" headings are the
SHA1SUM for each respective spin. Users do not need to "... start by downloading
the proper SHA1SUM file into the same directory as the ISO:". They can also
download the SHA1SUM by clinking the provided links.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://fedoraproject.org/en/verify
Ambiguous links. Does link "i386" download the iso?
Heading such as "SHA1SUM for Install DVD / Rescue CD" and "SHA1SUM for Live
Media (both GNOME and KDE)"
Read the web page again. The sentence "Otherwise, to verify your ISO, start by
downloading the proper SHA1SUM file into the same directory as the ISO:" and
page lay out added to my confusion.
Perhaps a two column table would have been better:
column-name: ISO SHA1SUM
Can this bug be closed? The page seems to now show all the proper information for verifying ISOs.
I would say the description is still applicable, although now the files are called CHECKSUM instead of SHA1SUM. The reporter is requesting that we clarify the links to say that those are the links to the CHECKSUM files, because it is sort of unclear on if those are the links to the iso's, the directory where the files are stored for each architecture, links to the CHECKSUM files, or what.
I don't know if we really need a table, or just some extra text above the links saying "Here are the links to the CHECKSUM files:" or something.
I would suggest simply adding text like what i mentioned above.
Thoughts/+1's? I can commit/push the change in git if no one objects.
Sounds like a plan to me.
Hey, thanks for looking into this - mind sending a patch to fedora-websites-list like we discussed on IRC? Thanks!
If you are still having problems, please go to http://fedoraproject.org/contact to notify the web team of your issue.
Tickets move to docs-request so the fedora-websites component can be removed per request from Ricky.
