Hello
I'm very interested in running a GuixSD system. I'm currently settingone up now, and am hoping someone here would be kind enough to sharetheir /etc/config.scm with me. Particularly, I'm looking for examplesof how a system with multiple partitions would be defined in theconfig.scm file.
My Partitions1. bios_grub 10M2. /boot 500M3. /swap 16.5G4. /root 50G5. /usr 50G6. /var 50G7. /home 50G
This installation is for a 250GB hard disk on a SuperMicro H8DGU-Fmotherboard with an AMD Opteron 6128 CPU and 8GB of ECC RAM. Let meknow if there is anything anyone wants tested about this setup(assuming I can get it online)

I’m using a separate encrypted /home and a swap partition, so thedeclaration looks like this:
Toggle snippet (30 lines)(operating-system (host-name "pluto") (timezone "Europe/Paris") (locale "en_US.utf8")
(bootloader (grub-configuration (device "/dev/sda")))
(mapped-devices (list (mapped-device (source "/dev/sda3") (target "home") (type luks-device-mapping))))
(file-systems (cons* (file-system (device "root") (title 'label) (mount-point "/") (type "ext3")) (file-system (device "/dev/mapper/home") (mount-point "/home") (type "ext3")) %base-file-systems))
(swap-devices '("/dev/sda4")) ;XXX: LABEL=swap
;; ... )
Normally you just need to add extra ‘file-system’ declarations for /varand /boot in there, and you’re done.
/usr doesn’t make sense on GuixSD because that directory is not used atall.
