I think I am doing something wrong. Sums do not match.
# sha256sum Fedora-Live-Xfce-x86_64-23-10.iso /dev/sdc
It does boot up and there is an icon for "Install to hard drive".
Dare I trust it with the sha256 sums not matching?
"dd" seems to be a really sweet way to install this to a flash
drive. Takes less than a minute. Is dd for this something new?
