    Default Down Load doubful

    After a 10 hour plus download of 13.1 64 bit with ktorrent (installed OS openSUSE 12.3) I find both sha1 and md5 checksums do not match!! Could not check the GPG signature as "unknown error" reported.
    Should I resign myself to another long download??
    Is the Metalink connection using downloadthemall any faster?

    Did you hash check the downloaded iso inside the torrent client ?
    GNOME Version 3.20.2
    openSUSE Leap 42.3 64-bit

    If you have Linux, use aria2c with metalinks. Just run it on the same
    directory as your bad file, and it will repair it. See
    How do I
    repair a corrupt installation dvd


    Code:
    rsync -avP rsync://server/path/image.iso
    
    or
    
    > aria2c --max-download-limit=40K --continue=true --check-integrity=true  http://server/path/image.isoiso.meta4

    Downloadthemall maybe can also used for repairing a download, but I have
    not experimented with it.

    Hi,
    Before prceeding with burning to dvd
    Why not verify the md5sums first

    Not needed if you use aria2c with metalinks. The meta4 file includes the
    checksums, and aria2c checks them. That's the point.

    You can do the checking just after to verify.
