About md5 Checksums and Digital Signatures

Md5 Checksums

The md5 sums offered on this page can be used to verify that your file downloaded successfully without corrupting in transit. These can be verified (usually on the command-line) using specific instructions for your operating system as detailed below:

Instructions for Linux
Instructions for Mac OS X
Instructions for Windows (2000 or higher)

In each of these cases, you can compare the output of the command to the md5 sum in the file (in the table, next to each download file).

Digital Signatures

The digital signatures on this page can be used to verify that your file was created by me, and hasn't been tampered with, either on the web server, or in transit to your computer. Checking these is more difficult, so I have decided not to include instructions here because they'd have to be very long to do it justice. Instead, please carry out a search on how to verify GPG signatures if you wish to learn how to do it.

As a programmer, I am inclined to say that you should always use both the md5 sum and the signature to verify your downloads, but the average user probably doesn't know how to; if you aren't concerned about it, don't worry too much about it.

Downloads For WxFixBoot

WxFixBoot v2.0.4

IMPORTANT: Fedora 26 is not supported in this build. Please download WxFixBoot 2.0.3 for that platform.

This release fixes several bugs in WxFixBoot, some of which are quite important / disruptive. In particular it fixes bugs on Fedora 27 & 28, and Fedora 26 is no longer supported. It's recommended you download this version as an update and for all new deployments. There are also improvements in how the LILO and ELILO bootloaders are configured.

For all the details, head to my blog at https://www.hamishmb.com/blog and see the corresponding post.
