Guix,

The list of operating systems in GNOME Boxes' ‘Create a Virtual
Machine’ & ‘Operating System Download’ menus has the same
potential problems that GNUtoo describes here[0].

Kind regards,

T G-R

It seems that Parabola hides the download button altogether:


But it seems we can instead tweak ‘data/recommended-downloads.xml’:

Toggle snippet (21 lines)
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<!--
These are OSes listed in the recommended section of the "Download an OS" page.

This list is powered by libosinfo, therefore the URLs are unique identifiers
for each OS in osinfo-db.

Downstreams are encouraged to tweak the list as they wish. Sorting is also
available.
-->
<list>
<os_id>http://redhat.com/rhel/8.2</os_id>
<os_id>http://fedoraproject.org/fedora/32</os_id>
<os_id>http://fedoraproject.org/silverblue/32</os_id>
<os_id>http://ubuntu.com/ubuntu/20.04</os_id>

<os_id>http://debian.org/debian/10</os_id>
<os_id>http://endlessos.com/eos/3.8</os_id>
</list>

In parallel, it’d be nice to submit a patch adding Guix to ‘osinfo-db’:


Any takers? :-)
