    Running 10.6.7, I have x11 installed (xquartz 2.3.6), trying to install Gimp 2.6.11

    I download the DMG and when I try to open it, I get "the disk image could not be opened because it was not recognized."

    WTF?

    Ok, found the problem.  Safari corrupts the file.  Download the file using Firefox and the DMG opens as expected.

    Make sure that you delete your previous download.  The problem is that the download link does not send the correct headers to the browser, with Safari thus not saving the file correctly.  Firefox saves the file just fine.
