How do I verify the iso images
 
I used the torrent page on the Slackware homepage.
Now I have 18 files. What do I do now?
Can I check for consistency?
Any thing I should know before I burn the CDs?
Thanks

What 18 files do you have? If you downloaded the .md5 files as well as the ISO images, just run "md5sum -c file.md5" to verify the images (under *NIX obviously, if you're using Windows, then there's MD5summer.

I like to check my md5 for the downloaded iso before a burn. I then will check the original iso md5 and the burnt image to confirm that the burn was good.

I would check the md5sum for any downloaded cd/dvd iso then be sure to check the md5sum for the original iso. Don't rely on you burn application to confirm the md5 as most have a problem.

From the cli;

Code:

~#cd /downloadisolocation      #cdromiso.iso cdromiso.md5

~#md5sum -c cdromiso.md5      #substitute the correct name to check

If the iso md5 is ok then you should try 'CdromMd5sumsAfterBurning''.

This procedure will check the download iso with the known md5sum that you also get with the iso. That way you will know if the burn was OK!

Bash and csh?

is there a command for downloading files from http servers to my working directory?

Your post should really be in a separate thread, since it's unrelated to your original question. You can get a mod to do that if you wish.

Anyway, for Bash scripting, there's the Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide. Not sure about C shell though, but Google is your friend.

For info about awk, well, you might like to read this.

As for downloading stuff via the command line, there's wget and curl.

As the MOD stated it would be better to start a new thread.

You can look at the 'Linux Newbie Admin Guide' as another good source.

Also look at 'LinuxSelfHelp'.

These links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links' .

BTW, LQ and Google are good places to search.
