    Default True Size of SUSE 11

    Hi , I was wondering if someone could be kind enough to let me know the full download details of SUSE 11.
    As I used Multiget to download & even though it says its 4.3GB it stopped with an error & I am not sure if it totally finished.
    heres what I have in my Download folder.
    it says 4.3GB but its the bytes im worried about "4,602,126,336B .
    Just need confirmation if its the same as everyone elses.
    Thanks as I dont wont to waste burning DVD's if I can help it.

    you'd be better doing an md5 checksum & comparing it to the original md5

    Hi
    The correct way to check the integrity is via md5sum :-) Is it the
    64bit or 32bit release?

    I thought I better finish of by making it known (not that its important) that it turned out to be a bad md5-sum or .iso even though it was the exact size it should be..
    Thats sometimes the price you pay when using MultiThread download tool, if it finishes the download but doesnt finish putting all the pieces together then you could have a problem.
    AnyWay thats my 5cents worth & only because they dont have 2cents here anymore.

    It could be that only a few blocks are affected. You can fix it up using a torrent client, pointing the client to your current download. Torrent will then find the bad bits and replace those.
