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
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
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
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
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
Next I found https://iot.stg.fedoraproject.org/
I downloaded the raw image (and have since gotten it setup in a virtual
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
