Description rvboutin9 2020-04-25 10:23:47 UTC
I downloaded Digikam version 6.4.0 Windows 64bit installer initially from the 1st mirror (https://download.kde.org/stable/digikam/6.4.0/digiKam-6.4.0-Win64.exe), I got an alert from Windows Defender service saying that this software was unsafe, I tried to install anyway but the install stopped with an error. I then check the hash from that download and it did not match. I download it again from http://www-ftp.lip6.fr/pub/X11/kde/stable/digikam/6.4.0/digiKam-6.4.0-Win64.exe same again the hash did not match. I downloaded it from http://mirror.hs-esslingen.de/Mirrors/ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/digikam/6.4.0/digiKam-6.4.0-Win64.exe then the hash matched and the install ran fine.

1. download from https://download.kde.org/stable/digikam/6.4.0/digiKam-6.4.0-Win64.exe >> wrong SHA-256 Hash
2. http://www-ftp.lip6.fr/pub/X11/kde/stable/digikam/6.4.0/digiKam-6.4.0-Win64.exe >> wrong SHA-256 Hash
3. http://mirror.hs-esslingen.de/Mirrors/ftp.kde.org/pub/kde/stable/digikam/6.4.0/digiKam-6.4.0-Win64.exe correct hash

Best regards,

I only tested this download:



The checksum is correct.

I checked all the specified download mirrors, the files are OK.

The Defender alarm is known, digiKam is an unknown program for Windows. Gilles has done a lot of work to compile digiKam with the MSVC. It is a prerequisite that digiKam can be included in the Windows App Store. Then the problem will no longer exist.

These mirror are managed out of space of digiKam team. We publish original on root server which are mirrored everywhere.

So the mirroring stage be can uncomplete and not well done. I don't know why.

This is why you have SHA256 sum to check if mirroring is safe or not...
