[SOLVED] Arch qcow2 Basic Artifact Doesn't Match SHA256

I just downloaded the basic .qcow2 VM image from GitLab and it does not match its sha256.

Specific Download Links:
https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/ … 0342.qcow2
https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/ … ow2.SHA256

$ sha256sum ./Arch-Linux-x86_64-basic-20210420.20342.qcow2
9831f095595138b6d80ebc7e9090dae739fde59504a4cd446272c0a44ba14522  ./Arch-Linux-x86_64-basic-20210420.20342.qcow2
$ cat ./Arch-Linux-x86_64-basic-20210420.20342.qcow2.SHA256
b59f7218df206b135a0cd9a288e79e35cf892bca0c71373588d0d10b029d50a4  Arch-Linux-x86_64-basic-20210420.20342.qcow2

Just looking for a sanity check. Either there's an issue in the build infrastructure that doesn't give the proper SHA256 or my system is already compromised =P (or, more likely, PEBCAK somewhere...).

Re: [SOLVED] Arch qcow2 Basic Artifact Doesn't Match SHA256

Interestingly, the *-libvirt*.box version looks as expected:

$ sha256sum Arch-Linux-x86_64-libvirt-20210420.20342.box
794410309266af9f6da4b3c92f4fc37b744d51916dbe1f6f35b1842866193ebc  Arch-Linux-x86_64-libvirt-20210420.20342.box
$ cat Arch-Linux-x86_64-libvirt-20210420.20342.box.sha256.SHA256
794410309266af9f6da4b3c92f4fc37b744d51916dbe1f6f35b1842866193ebc  Arch-Linux-x86_64-libvirt-20210420.20342.box

Match fine for me, I downloaded both files through firefox .
What method did you use to download them ?

Welcome to archlinux forums.


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

Re: [SOLVED] Arch qcow2 Basic Artifact Doesn't Match SHA256

I'm using Vivaldi. Last night, was at a friend's house and their network was unreliable and slow. Here at my home network, I downloaded again and got the right hash.

Bizarre but, live and learn.

$ ls -alh Arch-Linux-x86_64-basic*
-rw-r--r-- 1 xxxxxx xxxxxx 428M Apr 26 08:42 Arch-Linux-x86_64-basic-20210420.20342.qcow2
-rw-r--r-- 1 xxxxxx xxxxxx 525M Apr 25 15:43 Arch-Linux-x86_64-basic-20210420.20342.qcow2.old
-rw-r--r-- 1 xxxxxx xxxxxx  111 Apr 25 15:38 Arch-Linux-x86_64-basic-20210420.20342.qcow2.sha256

There is OBVIOUSLY something off about that .old version of the image...

Thanks for the sanity check and the warm welcome Lone_Wolf!

I'll mark this topic as [solved] as soon as I can figure out how to do it.
