On the page
md5 checksum is still the most commonly used checksum. Many ISO burners display it right before burning
Clicking on the link md5 one gets the page
which displays the checksum. I personally download to a file which is shown in the file manager krusader. krusader is able to verify the checksum provided there is a .md5 file somewhere. So I copied the content of the md5 file to a new txt file, saved that, and finally startet the verification process.
Things would be easier if clicking on md5 would lead directly to the md5 _file_ which could then be used for the verification. So I suggest having the download page changed accordinly for 13.2.
In closing I would like to thank you for the work done for us users.
Steps to Reproduce:
No idea why this feature request regarding software.opensuse.org was assigned to KDE-Maintainers
I fear that this was also not the correct component/assignee.
