Hi. For various reasons I want the Fedora 20 Iso File. I tried searching fedoraforum.org but was unable to find a place where this iso file could be downloaded. I did a google search and found this place: http://www.cyberciti.biz/linux-news/fedora-linux-20-download-cd-dvd-iso/.

There I was able to both download a f20 iso file and get its checksum.

However, since the file and checksum didn't come from fedoraforum.org, I'm nervous about how safe it is to use that image. I'm sure the fine folks at cyberciti.biz have done things right, but I'd like to know if I can verify that image checksum against fedoraforum.org.

For that matter, how could I find a legacy image like that at fedoraforum.org? All they seem to present is f21.

You've probably been to the main Fedora "Get Fedora" page:

https://getfedora.org/

For example the Workstation button will take you here
https://getfedora.org/en/workstation/

then the 'Download' will go to:

https://getfedora.org/en/workstation/download/

hover your mouse over that so the URL shows, see where the Fedora version number "21" is in the URL, just below that (the parent directory) is "releases":

http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/21/Workstation/x86_64/iso/Fedora-Live-Workstation-x86_64-21-5.iso

You can go right there

http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases

and you'll find there's a "20" subdirectory, look in there and you can drill down,
20-> Fedora -> iso and your file is there

http://mirror.steadfast.net/fedora/releases/20/Fedora/x86_64/iso/

Of course usually the mirror system will switch to something different like here it's steadfast.net
That releases directory goes all the way back to '7' but all the directories are empty after Fedora 20. The other place to go is http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/
that particular spot will go way back to old ones

I use the torrents at http://torrents.fedoraproject.org or my local official mirror at http://mirrorservice.org/sites/dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/

Here. (https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/20/Live/)

You can back up a bit to https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/ and browse the hierarchy.

Okay, thanks to everyone who gave tips.

I went with marko's solution and found the iso download directory. They had the same file names that I had downloaded from the other site, including both the iso and checksum files. The checksum matched. (Meaning that when I ran sha256sum against the iso file, it gave an output matching that in the checksum file from the fedora location.)

This indicates that the iso file I used is valid, so I don't have to restart the whole download and installation process.
