check sum

In the procedures available and the words used in communication , i am at a loss of understanding.

I did the download and did burn the image. yes i should have checked it before the burn.

going into: verify download at this page: http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora-options

there are these words: Once you have downloaded an ISO, verify it for security and integrity. To verify your ISO, start by downloading the proper CHECKSUM file into the same directory as the ISO:

clicking on the appropriate link brings up a HTML page of what seems to appear to be keys.

Question: do these keys need to be placed into a plain text file, and then into the same directory as the download.

at this page: https://fedoraproject.org/en/verify

there are the words at the beginning of the verify procedure working with the command line;

Next, import Fedora1s GPG keys(s):


this is the suggested string: curl https://fedoraproject.org/static/fedora.gpg | gpg --import

$ curl https://fedoraproject.org/static/fedora.gpg | gpg --import

-bash: gpg: command not found

  % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed  Time    Time    Time  Current

                                Dload  Upload  Total  Spent    Left  Speed

 67 24213  67 16384    0    0  31241      0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 86231

curl: (23) Failed writing body (0 != 16384)

Question: is there a simple basic check sum available for the command line. and some keys to check against.

it has been a while since the last time i did a check sum, and at this time of this post i did not go back into the files and re edit my brain cells on the procedures and commands.

But what we have here just seems a bit to much over the top and does not work.

any suggestions or options in getting around the rock with what is available.

Thank you.
