I saw the announcement for Li-f-e 42.1 on Monday. Before long, I was downloading it so that I could take a look. I have been reviewing “Li-f-e” releases since that for opensuse 12.3. Search for “li-f-e” in the search box to find those earlier reviews.
Download and install
I picked one of the download sites from the announcement, and fired up “aria2c” for the download. I also used “wget” to download the md5 checksum file. After the download completed, I use the “md5sum” command to verify the download.
I’ll note that, after the “aria2c” download, there was no “.meta4” file. So apparently the download site was not setup for meta-downloads. However, “aria2c” handled that gracefully, presumably dropping back to a plain file download (similar to what “wget” does).
