I reported the problem to Arch Linux bug tracker:

@lantw44 It's already in core repository:

upgpkg: gnutls 3.6.5-1
upstream update 3.6.5 - move to new stable branch, drop guile bindings as they don't build currently with recent guile 2.2.x branch

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

ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build guix:

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.

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

guix-daemon-latest does not start:

@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?

zeronineseven commented on 2018-05-08 20:35

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