    Is it possible to checksum an iso while downloading it

    Hi,

    I often download different distros and try them out, but is there a way to check the checksum while downloading the iso? I think that the download must complete first to do the checksum, right? I have a slow net connection and thus i have to use BitTorrent or Gwget download manager. Thanks.

    You need to download the ISO fully before checking the checksum.

    Or use torrents, they check each chunk as it is downloaded.
