#887 macOS version of Fedora Media Writer from getfedora.org failing to install
Opened 2 years ago by ozeszty. Modified a year ago

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!
