Downloaded File does not match SHA-256 Checksum

Postby clmcd42 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 2:48 am

I downloaded Transmission-2.94.dmg and used the command "openssl sha -sha256 ~/Downloads/Transmission-2.94.dmg" to generate the checksum. It does not match the hash on the download page. I am concerned about installing this program until I figure out why that is. What could cause this?

Just tried it myself and SHA256 matches what's on https://transmissionbt.com/download/ (2cae915ae0e37fc5983406ca7fbd53a054a7153d3bfd7a6cef117a8a28d8a78a). Try re-downloading. Make sure that there's only a single "Transmission-2.94.dmg" file in your downloads folder, i.e. you didn't download it to "Transmission-2.94.dmg.1" or sth.
