@Ferk This looks like a bug of the gnutls package. Binding files installed by gnutls are empty. I have reported the bug as

Ferk commented on 2022-04-15 08:11 (UTC)

I'm getting this error:

checking for guile-2.2... yes
checking if (gnutls) is available... no
configure: error: The Guile bindings of GnuTLS are missing; please install them.

Both guile and gnutls are installed, but it seems the bindings are missing.

This should be temporary: AUR had some trouble earlier this week.

I've seen this issue in a couple guile packages. It seems that having multiple versions of guile installed is not something that some guile packages can deal with. The easiest way I found to resolve that was to build all packages in a chroot using paru:

paru -S --nocheck --chroot guix

I added --nocheck because some guix checks were failing and I didn't feel like troubleshooting it :)

You have to setup a local AUR repo, but I think paru gives you the procedure when you first try it.

valandil commented on 2022-03-15 01:35 (UTC)

Yeah ok. I just removed tidy_strip locally to make it work :)

lantw44 commented on 2022-03-14 10:10 (UTC)

@valandil I fixed it by ignoring the return value of tidy_strip.

valandil commented on 2022-02-15 02:41 (UTC)

I get the following errow when trying to build guix-1.3.0-1. It seems that calling tidy_strip fails at the end. Have you seen this erro before?

@vv111y Yes, you can build it in /tmp. For the guile-lib issue, you can patch the PKGBUILD of guile-lib like this:

Unfortunately, the maintainer of guile-lib doesn't respond to my comment:

update: okay I see the comment in pkg-build. so what am I supposed to do? do a manual build in /tmp?

update II: Now I ran into the latest issue for guile-lib. I just used the alternative guix-installer package instead.

lantw44 commented on 2021-09-02 16:04 (UTC)

@cxor It is used to get the fish completion directory.

cxor commented on 2021-09-01 23:47 (UTC)

why is fish a dependency for this build? did someone watch too many distrotube videos?

lantw44 commented on 2021-07-18 10:29 (UTC)

@twilk I can't reproduce the error. For tests/go.scm, you probably have to patch guile-lib PKGBUILD because it doesn't install into the standard location.

lantw44 commented on 2020-06-13 09:28 (UTC)

@SArchB Please don't remove the length check. There are many tests assuming the path isn't too long, and tests/gexp.scm is just an example. I just got a successful build under the directory /home/lantw44/g.

SArchB commented on 2020-05-10 10:11 (UTC) (edited on 2020-05-10 10:12 (UTC) by SArchB)

Ok, so first this kept failing for me on the 'no longer then 36 bytes' issue, which for me seemed unsolvable since my '/home/username/.cache/yay/guix/src/' was already over 36 characters in length. So, I changed this limit in the PKGBUILD to skip the issue. The PKGBUILD stated the lenght check to be there to prevent tests/gexp.scm from failing, but later during the testfase the gexp file was automatically skipped.

Next though, the build still failed. Looking into the logs it failed multiple times for 2 specific reasons:

  1. It was unable to define my email address:

    fatal: unable to auto-detect email address (got 'username@computername. (none)')

  2. Many times it said:

    failed to download "/tmp/guix-file.7yoWNT" from

The 2nd seems logical since isn't a valid address, it should be

So, in my experience, at this moment, this package won't build properly on the latest version or Arch.

lantw44 commented on 2020-03-21 15:22 (UTC)

@exaos Is it a networking issue? I just tested it in a clean VM and there are no failed tests. Do you have logs for debugging?

exaos commented on 2020-03-10 03:52 (UTC) (edited on 2020-03-10 06:21 (UTC) by exaos)

Building failed at the end of process:

==> 错误: The working directory cannot be longer than 36 bytes.
==> 错误: 在 check() 中发生一个错误。

It seems related to the long path name. So I moved the full building path into /tmp, and tried again. make check failed on:

@azmeuk I don't know why guile-json was deleted, and I just typed 'ssh restore guile-json' to restore guile-json package. Does it work for you now?

azmeuk commented on 2020-02-14 10:05 (UTC)

It seems the package has a dependency problem with guile-json (even with guile-json1 installed):

% yay -S guix --noconfirm

:: Repository AUR
    1) guix 2) guix-git

lantw44 commented on 2019-09-18 06:29 (UTC)

I updated the package to a newer commit on the master branch. It should pass all tests and 'guix pull' should works now.

@Ovsyanka Yes, I will do it once gnutls 3.6.8-3 enters core repository. It is still in testing.

Ovsyanka commented on 2019-07-10 15:38 (UTC) (edited on 2019-07-10 15:38 (UTC) by Ovsyanka)

Loolks like now it should depend on the gnutls package instead of gnutls-guile. According to this change gnutls now made with the guile support.

lantw44 commented on 2019-07-10 15:28 (UTC)

I can reproduce the issue, but I haven't spent time figuring out how to resolve it. As a workaround, you can install guix with guix, switch from guix-daemon.service to guix-daemon-latest.service, and use ~/.guix-profile/bin/guix to pull.

@sikmir If you already have an old version of guix package installed on the system, you have to remove it before building the new version.

@joz If you want to run tests, please build the package in a directory with a shorter path. For example, It is OK to build and test the package in /home/lantw44/guix, but you won't be able to run the test if you build it in /home/lantw44/aur/guix because the length of /home/lantw44/aur/guix/src/guix-1.0.0 is 37 bytes. The reason of having the check is that lengths of UNIX domain sockets and shebangs are limited.

joz commented on 2019-05-21 10:22 (UTC)

Hi, this fails for me with "The working directory cannot be longer than 36 bytes."

However, if I make the check() function a dummy one (return 0), the package gets built.

lantw44 commented on 2019-05-16 12:59 (UTC)

@doronbehar Thanks for your gnutls-guile package. I will switch this package to use gnutls-guile on the next update.

I am still working on the patch to update guix to 1.0.0. There are still a few failed tests, and I am trying to resolve them. I cannot apply your patch because you removed a lot of necessary things.

commented on 2019-05-12 11:42 (UTC)

@lantw44 you are probably right, I was looking through this a few weeks ago and do not remember my findings clearly.

Anyways, it is more hassle to maintain a custom gnutls package (though there might be one on the AUR, or someone could put it up), than to install directly, and not be dependent on arch packages.

lantw44 commented on 2019-03-10 13:39 (UTC)

@sngn GnuTLS enables Guile binding automatically when Guile is found on the system. Since 'make' package on Arch Linux is built with Guile enabled, GnuTLS should be able to find Guile because 'make' is a part of 'base-devel'. It is the Arch Linux maintainer of 'gnutls' package that disables Guile binding explicitly. In fact, 'gnutls' package had been built with Guile enabled for a few years. It got disabled when 'gnutls' was updated to 3.6.

sngn commented on 2019-03-10 08:07 (UTC)

For anyone who wants to install guix right now..

I successfully built gnutls with guile bindings and installed this guix package.

Though I uninstalled again and followed guix manual for binary installation.. which is the way I would recommend if you want to install guix on arch right now.

I don't think that arch gnutls is gonna build against guile in the near future, because upstream doesn't and that's kind of the whole point of arch, that you get 'pure' packages, meaning as close to upstream as possible.

lantw44 commented on 2018-12-16 11:05 (UTC)

I reported the problem to Arch Linux bug tracker:

sikmir commented on 2018-12-12 12:41 (UTC)

@lantw44 It's already in core repository:

lantw44 commented on 2018-12-10 13:10 (UTC)

Did you use gnutls from testing? It seems that gnutls in testing is built with guile disabled.

The file /gnu/store/gz3agxnnlgkafw2c8jnvk2hqmlh85pkc-guile-bootstrap-2.0.drv exists on my system. Is it a clean installation? If it isn't, you can try to rename or remove /gnu/store and /var/guix. I remember that guix-daemon automatically creates and copies files to /gnu/store when it is started the first time.

guix-daemon.service is the one you should use if you install guix with AUR. guix-daemon-latest.service is the one shipped by the upstream and it can only be used when you have guix installed by guix using root account. This means you have to run 'guix package -i guix' as root before you can use guix-daemon-latest.service.

dpriskorn commented on 2018-10-29 21:30 (UTC) (edited on 2018-10-29 21:31 (UTC) by dpriskorn)

The installation went fine but neither guix-daemon or guix-daemon-latest seem to work.

guix-daemon throws this error when a any guix command (e.g. guix environment --pure guix) is run:

guix environment: error: build failed: opening file `/gnu/store/gz3agxnnlgkafw2c8jnvk2hqmlh85pkc-guile-bootstrap-2.0.drv': Filen eller katalogen finns inte

I've successfully built guix on btrfs partition. Will report upstream. Thx!

lantw44 commented on 2018-05-10 15:07 (UTC)

I haven't spent time debugging this issue. If you can reproduce it on upstream git master, please report this tmpfs-related problem to the upstream bug tracker. Does guix tests pass if you build it on a filesystem which is not tmpfs?

zeronineseven commented on 2018-05-08 20:35 (UTC)

In fact my /tmp is actually mounted as tmpfs =/

lantw44 commented on 2018-05-08 14:22 (UTC)

It looks like it is an issue related to tmpfs, again ...

zeronineseven commented on 2018-05-08 09:18 (UTC)

lantw44, I ran the build on my host machine without manual chroot/container - no virtualization was involved except the one used by makepkg itself (fakeroot?). I'm not sure how can I test unprivileged user namespace functionality directly but I believe that it's working fine - I have unprivileged lxcs running on this machine and "unshare" command has spawned new bash session without any errors.

lantw44 commented on 2018-05-07 15:58 (UTC)

Did you run the test inside a chroot or a container? Can you use 'unshare' to successfully create an unprivileged user namespace in the environment you ran the test?

zeronineseven commented on 2018-05-06 21:58 (UTC)

Hi, It seems that I can't build guix due to failing tests/guix-environment-container. AFAIK this is related to userns but "cat /proc/sys/kernel/unprivileged_userns_clone" returns 1 and in fact I have unprivileged lxcs running on the very same host. test-suite.log content is here:

lantw44 commented on 2018-05-05 11:21 (UTC)

Hello, you can find the information on Arch wiki:

dpriskorn commented on 2018-05-05 07:25 (UTC)

Hi. Installed this recently.

I missed an explanation post-install that explains to me that I have to enable and start the daemon and add the buildusers to be able to run/use guix at all. Alternatively that the package sets it all up and remains quiet.

T-recks commented on 2018-03-18 20:42 (UTC)

Ah, you're right. Thanks for the response and for maintaining this package. Everything went smoothly for me once I followed the below example and changed DNS servers to pass some of the check() tests.

lantw44 commented on 2018-03-18 12:41 (UTC)

/gnu and /var/guix will be created by guix-daemon when you start the service the first time.

T-recks commented on 2018-03-18 10:53 (UTC)

Installing with this package build produced no /gnu directory and no /var/guix directory for me. Is this supposed to be the case or did I do something wrong?

stefanc_diff commented on 2017-11-19 11:15 (UTC) (edited on 2017-11-19 11:21 (UTC) by stefanc_diff)

This AUR package will build with pacaur only if the user edits the PKGBUILD file and removes/comments the check() function. Otherwise the check() function gives this error: ==> ERROR: The working directory cannot be longer than 46 bytes I was able to build the guix package and test it in a clean VM, it doesn't build on my archlinux host and it can't be built easily with the devtools since the guix AUR package requires other 2 AUR packages as build dependencies. You still have to follow the guix manual to run the additional steps after install manually for now.

g99 commented on 2017-10-08 17:07 (UTC)

builds well with yaourt (apacman), but not pacaur (key missing). guix root service startable, but addgroup and all other setup must be done manually still.

Had some issues running guix build, got these errors: guix: offload: command not found Try `guix --help' for more information. guix build: error: build failed: unexpected EOF reading a line Turns out that the guile path isn't properly set up. After some help from the mailing list, I managed to fix it by running: systemctl edit guix-daemon And added: [Service] Environment=GUILE_LOAD_PATH=/root/.guix-profile/share/guile/site/2.2 Environment=GUILE_LOAD_COMPILED_PATH=/root/.guix-profile/lib/guile/2.2 Note that I've run guix pull and it's now using guile 2.2 and not 2.0. Not sure if this should be added to the package or mentioned in the wiki.

If you want to run the check, you cannot build it in a directory with long path name because there are limits on the length of shebang and unix socket path.

You have to download the public key to verify the signature. Please see the comment at the top of PKGBUILD.

Thank you. I changed the article as per your suggestions. I did not know about systemctl edit. :)

Two simple comments for the article: 1. You don't have to copy the systemd unit file. To override options in guix-daemon.service, type 'systemctl edit guix-daemon.service' and put options you want to change in it. 2. You may want to mention '/var/log/guix' in 'Uninstalling Guix'.

Pelzflorian commented on 2016-12-26 10:53 (UTC)

I’ve created a Guix article on the Arch wiki. If that was too soon, feel free to delete it again.

lantw44 commented on 2016-12-17 14:28 (UTC)

You can find error messages of failing tests in test-suite.log.

Reded commented on 2016-12-17 13:44 (UTC)

Getting a build failure that doesn't seem to be the same as rafaelff's - I did check the DNS servers, and turned off my usual dnsmasq/crypt combo to see if that was affecting it, but couldn't see anything immediate. Anything I can do? Thanks!

rafaelff commented on 2016-11-08 12:45 (UTC)

You're right. My *nice* ISP's DNS servers redirects HTTP error messages to their search website, which masks the failure. This problem is solved by setting another DNS server in my computer and check() works just fine now. Sorry for the noise.

lantw44 commented on 2016-11-08 10:33 (UTC)

I think this is still caused by networking problems. It seems that when the test program tried to download http://does-not-exist, you got a web page that asked a browser to redirect to instead of failing.

rafaelff commented on 2016-11-06 13:30 (UTC)

I was behind a proxy, so probably the networking errors are related to it. However I'm having errors even without a proxy. See new logs: Build & Check log: test-suite.log:

I get the same error as rafaelff. If the default is to allow the tests internet access then that is what's happening on my system. I haven't deliberately turned internet access on or off.

lantw44 commented on 2016-11-05 07:39 (UTC)

Do you enable networking when running tests? I think there are many tests that need Internet access.

rafaelff commented on 2016-11-04 18:34 (UTC)

Compilation looks good, but check() reports 9 errors. With check() disabled (commented), no problems are displayed and package() finishes without issue. Build & Check log: test-suite.log:

lantw44 commented on 2016-11-04 12:38 (UTC)

It should be fixed in 0.11.0-3 now. I pulled two patches from upstream git repo to fix it.

lantw44 commented on 2016-11-03 17:31 (UTC)

It seems it is caused by the update to guile 2.0.13. guile 2.0.12 doesn't have this problem. I am still finding ways to fix it. Thanks for your reporting.

rafaelff commented on 2016-11-01 15:36 (UTC)

I'm unable to build this package. Full build log can be seen here: . What could be wrong?

wilfred commented on 2016-09-04 03:14 (UTC)

Note that you will need to create a guixbuild group and some users before you can install any packages. From the official docs: $ sudo groupadd --system guixbuild $ sudo for i in `seq -w 1 10`; do useradd -g guixbuild -G guixbuild \ -d /var/empty -s `which nologin` \ -c "Guix build user $i" --system \ guixbuilder$i; done Next, ensure the daemon is running ($ sudo systemctl start guix-daemon) and you can use guix.

mhw commented on 2016-08-13 07:32 (UTC)

The test failure reported by fusion809 will happen whenever the absolute file name of the build directory $(abs_top_builddir) is too long, and is ultimately due to the fact that shebangs (the first line with #!) of executable scripts in Linux (the kernel) are limited to 127 characters. Some of the tests involve building packages inside the build directory, with the store inside the build directory instead of in /gnu/store (so the tests can be done without root access), so you end up with shebangs like: #!$(abs_top_builddir)/test-tmp/store/lr35ppi5q3r3bazhx4nzvjf12vfdf08v-bash-static-4.3.42/bin/sh In fusion809's case, this becomes something like: #!/home/fusion809/.cache/pacaur/guix/src/guix-0.11.0/test-tmp/store/lr35ppi5q3r3bazhx4nzvjf12vfdf08v-bash-static-4.3.42/bin/sh The example above is 126 characters which just barely fits, but for packages with longer names, or if there is an argument after the script name on the shebang line, the length limitation will be exceeded. If you cannot arrange to do the builds in a directory with a shorter absolute file name, then you won't be able to run tests. I'm sorry about that, but until Linux (the kernel) increases this length limit, I don't see another solution.

lantw44 commented on 2016-08-10 18:38 (UTC)

Thanks for noticing the problem of stripping. I uploaded a new version of PKGBUILD and I think it should resolve the issue.

mhw commented on 2016-08-09 23:47 (UTC)

As a lead developer of GNU Guix, I wanted to follow up on balduin's comment. It's important for the bootstrap binaries installed in gnu/packages/bootstrap/* to be copied precisely, without modification. These bootstrap binaries are the foundation upon which everything else in Guix is built, and thus they affect the hashes of every derivation. I've learned that by default, 'makepkg' automatically strips all executables, including these bootstrap binaries. As a result, users of this AUR package generate different derivations than all other Guix users, and thus they cannot make use of our binary substitutes, nor can they compare their build outputs with build outputs from other users to gain confidence that results are genuine and uncorrupted. balduin has verified that adding "options=(!strip)" to this PKGBUILD fixes the problem. I would be grateful if you could make this change ASAP. Feel free to stop by #guix if you have questions about this. Thanks!

balduin commented on 2016-08-09 20:53 (UTC)

The package works fine so far. The only problem is that you have to build each and every package from source, because the bash binary of the guix-0.11.0.tar.gz get's modified by makepkg. The negative effect is none of substitutes (pre-build packages) from can be used since all produce a different output. The solution is to add to the PKGBUILD file: options=(!strip) for example: ~~~ ... url="" license=('GPL') options=(!strip) makedepends=( 'bash-completion' ... ~~~ after adding the options line none of the binaries in guix-0.11.0.tar.gz will be modified and using substitutes from works.

lantw44 commented on 2016-07-15 13:10 (UTC)

You have to obtain the required public key before you can verify the signature. You can find the required command at the beginning of PKGBUILD file.

I cannot reproduce the test failure. It is possible that it is just a temporary failure because some tests depend on remote servers. If it still fails, you can use the output in tests/build-utils.log to debug and report the issue.

Does your system run out of memory? Is there any network problem found in the log file? It is also possible that this is a problem of a remote server because this test needs Internet access.
