Verifying integrity of downloads
- Most downloads have an associated link "(md5)" to a *.md5file containing its MD5 checksum and another link "(sha1)" to a *.sha1 file containing its SHA1 checksum. Download these files, such as from Eclipse download page, into the same directory as the downloaded archive file.
- Execute the command "md5sum -c <zipfilename>.md5" or "sha1sum -c <zipfilename>.sha1". The result "<zipfilename>: OK" is indicative of an intact download.
