Clicking on the down load option from the software download page:


GNU Guix 1.3.0 QEMU Image

QCOW2 virtual machine (VM) image.


Does not download a file, it tries to open the file in thevrowser. The
iso file from the other option downloads fine.

Have a look

Thomas,

Thanks for the report. I'm CC'ing <gnu@gnu.org> as documented
here[0] to get their opinion.

This is not universal: it works fine in Firefox 100.

However, there does seem to be an inconsistency with the GNU FTP
server:

~ λ curl -LI
|
grep Content-Type
X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff
Content-Type: application/x-iso9660-image

~ λ curl -LI
|
grep Content-Type
X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff

The QCOW2 response is missing a Content-Type, whilst asking
browsers not to sniff it for themselves. Apparently your browser
is making an exceptionally bad call.

Kind regards,

T G-R
