ZecPaperWallet checksum error

I posted about this problem a couple days ago but failed to provide enough information.
There’s a checksum error within the latest paper wallet zip file for linux that’s on github.

The zip file was downloaded from the URL below:

Under Assets the third file listed is:

After download the reported file the size is:
11,749,284 bytes

The computed SHA256 checksum for this file is:

The file unzips without error producing the output below:

Would someone please try to reproduce this and confirm or dispute these results?
Thanks in advance.


Thanks for letting me know. I’ll look into it today.

It was a bug in the build script that was generating the hash for the linux-musl target instead of the linux-gnu target.

Anyway, it is fixed now in v0.6. If you download the new version, it should check fine.

Thanks for reporting this bug.
