Cannot get proper download for Rocky ISO files

I have tried MANY time to download an iso file but keep getting the wrong size. I tried with the DVD and Minimal files. Since the files I get are of the wrong size of course they will not pass checksum verification. I have downloaded from both Windows and android with the same results. I successfully download the checksum file. For example, the checksum file states the minimal iso is 1.6+ GB. On all occasions the file I get is 1.5+ GB. The DVD file is over1.5 GB short.

Any suggestions? Is there a compressed (zip) version available. Even with 200+ Mbps internet speed i takes a long time to download :unamused:

If you are having issues with downloading from our main site, you have a couple options:

My bad on the file sizes. I was looking at the file sizes in kilobytes when the checksum file on your site has them in bytes.

However I still get the error message: ISOLINUX 6.04 ETCDisolinux: Image checksum error, sorry…

A friend that also trying to install says the checksums do match.

I am attempting install on Oracle Virtual Bx 7.0

I have tried different mirrors. I have downloaded both the DVD and minimal several times. I am about ready to give up and go another route. I have spent days on this.

I wanted to use Rocky since the CentOs I was using is no longer supported. Rocky seemed to be the closest thing.

Thanks for the response


Just to let you know I finally got Rocky installed. It must be a problem with Virtual Box. I checked the skip unattended mode box and all went well. It could have been coincidence since I did download a new ISO file from index of Rocky 9.2. I verified size and checksum first.

I will now spend my time configuring the environment for my needs.

Thank you for your help.

Checking skip “Skip unattended Installation” has worked for me for the same ISO that was giving me checksum error. So I assume its a VirtualBox problem.
