I finished downloading the 10.2 with aria2c, and it popped this error:

| 3,880,814,592/3,880,814,592 Bytes 100% 00s 24.15 KB/s 1 connections
| The download was complete. <./openSUSE-10.2-GM-DVD-i386.iso>
| Now verifying checksum.
| This may take some time depending on your PC environment and the size of file.
| checksum ERROR.

This happened to me as well. Although, when I retried it, it worked the second time. I agree that trying a second time shouldn't have overwritten the file, but I like the idea that metalinks can use ftp/http instead of only peers.

Anyway, if you do get a corrupted download (which even happens with bittorrent sometimes), you can repair it with rsync, which will only transfer the fixed changes:

rsync -IvzP rsync://<name-of-mirror>/<opensuse-directory>/<path-to-iso>/<name-of-ISO> <path-to-your-local-ISO-file>
