nevermind - that was md5 not sha1 - my file was good, guess it's just
slow right now.

This is why I don't like, or trust torrents, you never know when someone
has tampered with it.

Just as an FYI, there *seems* to be some small difference in the
specifications of the torrent files for the 1to6 and DVD. I shutdown and
rebooted the system, ran this command

export SD=/media/BkUp_4_51/shared/CentOS/Current
cd $SD
rtorrent
-s $SD
-o key_layout=qwerty,peer_exchange=yes,dht=on
*.torrent

Since I'm seeding, download is not an issue. But the peer_exchange is
different in the two torrents. From the UI for 1to6

Transfer list Peer exchange: enabled active (8/8)

and for the DVD

Transfer list Peer exchange: enabled inactive (0/8)

This diference has been consistent. I don't know if it has a(n)
(in)direct effect on the download speeds. But since another person
mentioned slow download, I thought it might be a relevant data point.

Default What torrent are y'all using?

I got mine down at 10-12Mbps at work, and nearly as fast at home. And that was
yesterday when supposedly everybody and their dogs were downloading 5.2. OTOH,
that might be why it went so fast... 8-)

Are you sure your ISP doesn't cap/stop/whatever p2p generally? If you are,
what kind of settings have you set in your bt-client? What bt-client are you
using? What bandwidth do you have access to?

In any case, I usually seed mine more or less indefinitely.

The mirror lists at centos.org are rather good. If they don't work for you,
well, check above.

Subject: [CentOS] What torrent are y'all using?

I grabbed the torrent off of one of the iso mirrors, but it is coming
down so slow - I have to wonder if the torrent file is the incorrect one
for the bad file mentioned on the list earlier.

Would someone be kind enough to point me to a mirror with a known good
torrent file?

But... That's what the checksums are for. Don't you trust them?
