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.

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.

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:

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.

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

Compilation looks good, but check() reports 9 errors. With check() disabled (commented), no problems are displayed and package() finishes without issue.

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

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.

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

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`;
useradd -g guixbuild -G guixbuild \
-d /var/empty -s `which nologin` \
-c "Guix build user $i" --system \

Next, ensure the daemon is running ($ sudo systemctl start guix-daemon) and you can use guix.
