I have a bunch (five is I want to re-DL Xubuntu) ISO's I would like to run checksums against, for the obvious reason.
However, the appropriate site the torrent comes from occasionally uses a prog' that won't be on my native distro (Ubuntu Koala), e.g. on FedoraProject.org it's "curl".
On Debian I would start a terminal as Root then use apt-get to add a key to my ring, but the hardware the distro is on hasn't the diskspace to hold 8 Gigs of ISO data
I appreciate I can quite easily Google "how to add [Distro-X] to Ubuntu GPG keyring" but surely someone has built something that could do multiple additions at once?
I realise there are security implications to having bulk-installs to such a high-risk piece of software. If I was on Debian at least I'd have a second password to use!
A shell script may be the way to go to do this quickly, but I would prefer to write that myself and the how-to book I'm [goin to order] won't arrive for some time.
