Notes

  • Supported distros:

    • Ubuntu - All family (except ubuntu-server because they no longer provide checksums for older versions)
    • Debian (Live & DVD)
    • Linux Mint
    • OpenSUSE LEAP
    • Fedora (Live & netinst)
  • You shouldn't change the name of the iso file (for example, ubuntu-mate-19.04-desktop-amd64.iso) because this tool uses regular expressions to match them and then look up its hash on the corresponding distro's URL.
