@zeronineseven did your problem have to do with guile-ssh? why do we need guile-ssh again? guile-ssh fails for me on btrfs with

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

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?

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

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

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.

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?

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:

Hello, you can find the information on Arch wiki:

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.
