How to verify downloaded iso's
I am using FC3. I am using bittorrent to downoad fc4 iso images. I have completed download of 1full CD iso, and 350 on the 2nd CD only to know that the download has gone wrong somewhere. I tried sha1sum on the first iso and it reported as
But the file size matches
[ ] FC4-i386-disc1.iso 06-Jun-2005 22:54 635M
(the difference , as u might hav known, is because of conversion from Bytes to MB)
Now the question is how do i verfiy the packets as they arrive before the are downloaded. So that i don't have to wait for several hours to download a iso only to find its has to send to the trash.
The packets themselves are checksummed over the net, but I think the problem is more likely data corruption at one end or the other, or a bad sha1sum on the website. They don't provide an md5sum as well, do they?
