@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.

Hi, I get unit test errors after building:

FAIL: tests/go.scm
FAIL: tests/git-authenticate.scm
FAIL: tests/channels.scm
FAIL: tests/git.scm

The full log of tests is here.

Errors include GPG errors from git:

error: gpg failed to sign the data
fatal: failed to write commit object

And even some errors from guile:

+ (unbound-variable
+   "module-lookup"
+   "Unbound variable: ~S"
+   (html->sxml)
+   #f)


Syntax error: unexpected token : (ghc-options (-Wall)) (at line 11, column 2)
Syntax error: unexpected end of input


Syntax error: unexpected token : (buildable (False)) (at line 12, column 4)
Syntax error: unexpected end of input

new 1.2?

@simona The failed test came from, not guix.

@simona I can't find tests/clone.scm in guix. Where does this test come from?

@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.

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.

@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?
