#887 macOS version of Fedora Media Writer from getfedora.org failing to install
Closed: stale 7 months ago by jflory7. Opened 3 years ago by ozeszty.

There's been reports about https://getfedora.org/fmw/FedoraMediaWriter-osx-4.1.1.dmg failing to install.
https://github.com/FedoraQt/MediaWriter/releases/download/4.1.1/FedoraMediaWriter-osx-4.1.1-rebuilt.dmg Is confirmed to be working.

Also, there's no system requirements (e.g. minimum supported system version) for FMW.

More details: https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/127672/fedora-downloader-tool-for-mac-will-not-open/

P.S. I don't have any macOS device, so I can't help testing it.

It appears there is now also a new version 4.1.2 of the Mac Media writer available now too.

@mbriza SHould we be hosting and linking to this version now on getfedora.org?

Hello there!

I can confirm the linked DMG won't open on macOS 10.11 (El Capitan):
https://getfedora.org/fmw/FedoraMediaWriter-osx-4.1.1.dmg

While the DMG from GitHub Releases effectively works (I didn't try the -rebuilt version since the first one worked for me):
https://github.com/FedoraQt/MediaWriter/releases/download/4.1.1/FedoraMediaWriter-osx-4.1.1.dmg

Wouldn't reuploading the 4.1.1 DMG to the website make it possible again for macOS users to install Fedora, at least until the 4.1.2 DMG is finally published?

Is there anything else I can do to help fix this issue?

Thanks!

Hi, so a few years have passed here, and the link now points to https://getfedora.org/fmw/FedoraMediaWriter-osx-latest.dmg for the FMW download. Additionally, getfedora.org is no longer kept in this repository, it exists here:

https://pagure.io/fedora-web/websites

I am going to close this issue as stale, but feel free to re-open on the new repository if this is still an issue.
