As I begin to explore the IoT working group and the Getting Started Guide, the first gap
I am finding is a section for "Obtaining images".
Setting up a virtual machine starts (and pretty much ends) with decompress
Setting up a physical device does have some references to using (but not obtaining)
Fedora-IoT-28-<BUILD ID> and Fedora-Rawhide.xz files.
So I started looking for the images.
I ended up with downloads from iot.stg.fedoraproject.org
but with no CHECSUM files being
found for verification.
It looks to me like these will eventually belong at alt.fedoraproject.org
but I have not yet determined the differences in those collections
of aarch64 options. I was expecting to find them at arm.fedoraproject.org
based on my past
experiments with my Pi.
I am going to need a bit of help on what are the correct pointers to add to an Obtaining
images section of the getting started guide.
Here are my notes on what pages show what information and where I found dead links:
From the getfedora.org
page, at the bottom I do see
Fedora ARM -> https://arm.fedoraproject.org/
Alternative Downloads -> Alternate Architectures ->
Both pages have Server, Minimal, and Workstation but then they begin to differ.
Neither has anything labeled as IoT, however, the verify page for minimal
In the text, lists a gpg --verify-files key for IOT
Non of the -CHECKSUM files from this site include a Fedora-IoT image.
If I navigate to the Alt verify page at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/en/verify.html
Several of these links to CHECKSUM files cannot find the files. For example:
"The requested URL /en/static/checksums/Fedora-Spins-29-1.2-aarch64-CHECKSUM was not
found on this server."
Next I found https://iot.stg.fedoraproject.org/
I downloaded the raw image (and have since gotten it setup in a virtual machine)
The verify page from this site looks like a copy of the arm site verify page but only the
page itself was copied over to the stg site. The links to the CHECKSUM files are all
"not found" and appear to be the same base name as those used from the ARM site.
Again, with no mentions of any Fedora-IoT named files.
, at least not the final documentation.
The released images, and rawhide images, can be found at
