  1. Thanks. Everyone should be concerned about the website / website files being hacked and replaced falsely.
  2. TO CLARIFY: actually, the 'formula' ran and gave a typical output whereas before it did not, so that was a success in itself. However, I did get a 'bad signature'. But at least I am now comfortable checking the signature, so it was still a success
  3. I understand that as well. But why is the .img NOT matching the checksum, while the compressed image is - that's the biggest worry. Thx.
  4. The 'desktop-image' doc I was comparing the '.asc-doc' against was NOT a desktop image. Changed it and it worked. Thx
  5. When I run a checksum on both "...desktop.img.xz and .....desktop.img", the "...desktop.img.xz" matches the posted .sha doc's checksum. But when I run the "...desktop.img" checksum, it does NOT match the posted .sha doc checksum. I've always checked just the .img or .iso image against the posted checksum, never previously against the '..desktop.img.xz' image. Thx.
  6. Hi Igor. I loaded the key before anything else, your key ...import, if that's what you mean. After I import your key with the command line, is there anything else I need to do, such as with my 'key management - KGpg' .... "import keys". The command said it was imported, but I don't know where to check to see if yours is there; not sure if I'm supposed to be able to see it...? Thanks.
  7. Thanks Igor. As for trying to verify the signature - I'm getting closer, but apparently still doing something incorrect. I have in the same directory: the ".img" and the ".asc", and nothing else. I open a terminal there and then run the following: $ sudo gpg --verify Armbian_20.05.2_Orangepiplus2e_buster_current_5.4.43.img.xz.asc [sudo] password for b: OUTPUT: gpg: no signed data gpg: can't hash datafile: No data Or is the output for signature telling me the checksum is not valid? ======================================
  8. Hi Igor, thanks. But I'm not sure I understand. I'm using buster and those links are for bionic. But I will test what I think you may be trying to say. My guess is that the best thing is to verify the checksum signature. I thought there was a link on armbian.com for that, but don't seem to be able to find it. I also recall having some trouble figuring out how to do it. Anyway, could you provide a link for instructions? Thanks
  9. Last week I downloaded the checksum for armbian20.05.2_Orangepiplus2e_buster_current_5.4.43_desktop.img.xz and checked the checksum that came with the download. The .img checksum downloaded with the image and the checksum I ran were the same. When I check the online checksum here on armbian.com under downloads, sha, TODAY, the checksum is different. Is there any reason for me to believe that my original checksum and download may have been corrupted? I realize I can just re-download the image now, but whose to say that the one posted now is correct and not the previous one (while m
  10. Thanks anyway, I found the checksum and since the checksum was good, I will install and see what is in the .gnupg directory. I am surprised by what is in this install that I am writing from, as the private keys directory is completely empty. I know that after I make a keypair that they will exist there, but I thought there should be 2 plain text documents there also before making the keypair, so I was trying to make sure. HOW DO I MARK SOLVED?
  11. In other words, when you download this image/iso, what is in your .GNUPG directory (if you wouldn't mind downloading it to see)? https://archive.armbian.com/orangepiplus2e/archive/Armbian_19.11.6_Orangepiplus2e_buster_current_5.4.8_desktop.7z I have done it on my end. This is from the archived os'. I would check the checksum but I can't find them for these archives. Thanks.
  12. QUESTION: I downloaded the BUSTER image (19.11.6 / 5.4.8) .img. In my .GNUPG directory, there is only an empty 'private keys' directory. Is this supposed to be like this or should there be 2 'text' documents next to the 'private keys' directory? One of my former buster downloads from a year ago or so, I know there were 2 simple text documents in the .gnupg directory. I am trying to learn how to send an encrypted message using gpg, but haven't been successful, yet. I was thinking that maybe there is a problem with my .gnupg directory and this is why I'm running into a snag with it.
  13. Sorry I don't fully understand the coding above, but I can see you were using shasum to check the archive images. Thanks. I checked my archive download and it checked out!
