downloading

Post by pintades » Wed Jan 22, 2020 5:16 pm

New user question, so my apologies. I am trying to download version 4.2.1 onto a Mac using Mojave. The download instructions are relatively easy to follow until I am confronted with a "file signatures choice". These are the options. Which should I be choosing?

FILE SIGNATURES
MD5 7373e9a43c24896ffe2dcfe8199bb038
SHA1 b79228152644dc8056f8ba6d9b15db86ee996663
SHA2568 cb2ad026e051f33a01556d646c54b5daa4004806eb73a9b601f73bf94373c18

Yea, don't verify. Those are only there - so you can verify if someone tampered with the downloaded file. This is very rarely - if ever needed. It's there so the very careful folks could verify each release download. But for regular folks, it's no use.
