  • Antergos ISOs are available from different locations. For example, from here, and here, and here. Along with the ISO, all locations have MD5SUMS-17.6 file. It contains MD5 hashsums for main and minimal Antergos ISO images:

    146171b9ac40b734b274f77399d8fcc4 antergos-17.6-x86_64.iso
    cd6be2ed8689313bcef47b29d9ff46c3 antergos-minimal-17.6-x86_64.iso
    

    If you don’t use DownThemAll! Firefox extension, which automatically verifies hashsums consistency for downloaded files, you may check a hashsum in terminal:

    ┌──[just]@[alexarp]:~$
    └─> md5sum /1st/dnl/antergos-17.6/antergos-17.6-x86_64.iso 
    146171b9ac40b734b274f77399d8fcc4  /1st/dnl/antergos-17.6/antergos-17.6-x86_64.iso
    ┌──[just]@[alexarp]:~$
    └─> 
    

    If the result, returned by md5sum command, coincides with those contained in the MD5SUMS-17.6 file, then the ISO is downloaded correctly:

    146171b9ac40b734b274f77399d8fcc4  antergos-17.6-x86_64.iso
    146171b9ac40b734b274f77399d8fcc4  /1st/dnl/antergos-17.6/antergos-17.6-x86_64.iso
    
    cd6be2ed8689313bcef47b29d9ff46c3 antergos-minimal-17.6-x86_64.iso
    

    All SourceForge files have a handy (i) (information) button at the right side of the file name. It displays SHA1 and MD5 sums for the file. Select either one or another and paste it in DownThemAll!. Firefox will automatically calculate and check downloaded file’s hashsum against it.
