Hello,
Someone in IRC asked me to email these errors here as a bug report, so Ishall.
I was just trying to install Guix on a Gentoo machine via theyoubroketheinternet overlay (installed via layman). During the initial 'guixpull;guix package -i hello', I ended up with a weird error at the very end ofguix pull (as root);

then, when trying to run guix pull as a user, I got this (I havn't authorizedhydra as the user, but I did as root);

I'm not sure what the problem is, but that is multiple EOF errors from the samecommand from different users, so someone should probably take a look at it.

Hi,
thanks for the bugreport, and thanks for using the gentoo-overlay :)

For others to add: One of the federated sources of this overlay and theonly source with webview is at https://gnunet.org/git/In the youbroketheinternet-overlay repository Guix is located in sys-apps/guix/

As debugging can be difficult on Gentoo, and it could be just that - aGentoo problem - I'll send in details tomorrow on how a very minimal(gentoo) system looks/behaves with the guix from the gentoo-overlayinstalled.
But if this is a problem with Guix, someone else could help independentfrom what I'll contribute.

The following message has been forwarded to this bug again. There aresome details removed which will not be useful to anyone but me - I don'tthink many people are running Gentoo here so I was told to remove theoutput of "emerge --info" as this is only useful to recreate a somewhatsimilar system.
To reply to your bug (as I wrote before), just reply to the initial infomessage or.. If this doesn't get sorted out use$bugid@debbugs.gnu.org. More on this can be found here:https://debbugs.gnu.org/Developer.htmlwhich took me long enoughmyself. The debbugs team of gnu should really document this morevisible.

The profile is created automatically the first time “guix package -i” isrun. This happens reliably for me on Fedora, CentOS, and on GuixSD. Ifthis doesn’t happen Gentoo I suspect the Gentoo package to be defective(e.g. setting invalid permissions on certain directories).

This is not important. Anything Guix creates will be in the store.This includes all profile generations.
I suggest installing Guix using the official binary package. See thispage for the tarballs and the install instructions:

As far as I know what I did on my personal testing VM was:emerge guix; <autorize hydra, start daemon>; guix pull (as user); guixpackage -i hello
I can confirm once I have time to log into the VM again, state has notbeen altered. Like I wrote offlist, for me in an vanilla x86_64 VM itworked. I'll debug this at some point with the info I got offlist, ifdebugging is needed at Gentoo side.

The guix package in gentoo is my attempt to create something which workswell in the Gentoo structure of doing things. But of course it iscurrently masked for being experimental.. anyone using Gentoo shouldknow that there might be risks attached. Actually I should drop'guix-binary' as I don't work on that version of the package anymore,this is just from the source.

Without adding all of the off-ticket/list email I got: the failure isvery likely caused by /gnu/store being on a separate partition. I wasnot able to get information if the store has been moved therepost-install in addition (my ebuild certainly doesn't do that as can beseen in its file at gnunet.org/git/)
My tests only include a system where most things are on / (root), takingthe examples of gentoo handbook as an orientation of the general systemlayout of users who might happen to use my ebuilds.So I've read issues about the /gnu/store in the past, and I've seensolutions I think, but the answer to this should be something open topeople who run this in practice - I don't do this and have no ownexperience to share.

Hello,
I hope this is going to land in the right place. Anyways, I emailed ng0this and he suggested I send it to the bug report since it could make adifference.
When I was looking to try and figure out what was going wrong, I didn't eventhink about the fact I have /gnu mounted as a seperate parition, since I'minstalling Guix on Gentoo system and my root partition is rather close to fullfor my liking. The perms for the mounted dir is:
4.0K drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Oct 13 07:57 gnu/
Hope that helps us figure this out.

There’s nothing wrong with having /gnu on a separate partition. I’mdoing the same on our HPC cluster at work (/gnu is on NFS).
Have you tried to install Guix using the binary installation method?

What makes you say this is “very likely” the cause?
I have no problems having /gnu on an NFS share on a remote fileserverwith guix-daemon running on a separate server.

I summarized the email I got offlist, I should've written this before Istarted summarizing it.'Very likely' was not my own finding. This is a case of Gentoo/Guix Ican not debug. For vanilla amd64_x86 systems my guix ebuild works. Ihaven't tried the guix-binary ebuild yet (lynX did some finishingtouches) but this should behave the same.

That’s okay, but I’d like to know what makes this the likely cause. Hasthis behaviour been reproduced on another machine?
As Guix has no problems with a store on a different partition I don’tknow if it makes sense to keep this bug report open. I cannot reproducethis on my machines.

I'd like to keep it open. Right now I don't have the time to create a VMto ~roughly~ reproduce this, I am busy with some upcoming personalevents. The bug ended up here, I offered bugs.gentoo.org (as far as Iknow gentoo-overlays can use this shared infrastructure), my personalemail and our debbugs, so it makes sense to treat it as unsolved as longas I wasn't able to reproduce it. However in addition to the "emerge--info" I already got, I might need further info. Which guix ebuild wasused? "guix-bin" or "guix"?
It is impossible to reproduce exactly the system which caused the bug,but I will try to reproduce it as good as you can with Gentoo.I will assume (the unlikely case) that there are no package specificuse-flags set and just copy more or less what the emerge --info spitout.. but this will take time (going from stage3 to that particularstage4...). Otherwise I would accept a stage4 of the system, but I don'tknow how much developing on Gentoo experience dian_cecht has. Creatingyour own stage4 is documented but it still requires uploading thisstage4 somewhere.Furthermore, dian_cecht could you give me the exact chain of commandsyou made up to the point of failure (or where you are right now)starting from emerge guix? This would really help to reproduce theproblem. If you are not able to reconstruct this, please try to recallwhat you did and describe it. All I've got so far is feedback on what'sbroken not how it got to be broken.
Thanks,ng0

I chuckled a little. It’s ironic because with Guix we actually canreproduce systems with relative ease :)
Which is why I suggest trying the official installation method. If theuser can reproduce this with the official release we could actuallyinvestigate this better. If this is specific to a third-party packageof Guix it doesn’t really belong here, in my opinion.

Yeah… you know one of the reasons why I prefer Guix work over my Gentooworks. Yet I still maintain for Gentoo... and possibly will becomeGentoo developer next year so that GNUnet packages can be in portage.

I'd still like to get the information I asked for, that's enough for meto work on checking for a potential bug.Beyond that I agree that the official installation method should betried when the third party installation offered by my ebuild fails.

Food for thought: right now, yes. But what happens when more peoplestart to use Guix, with modified versions of packages or even versionsof packages which are no longer in master? Do we simply ignore therequest for support with "sorry, this is not in master we can notreproduce it"?The systems following master go towards being reproducible, but customsystems (and that's what Gentoo is) will appear and they will make thisharder, a new challenge to face maybe.

Given the Guix git hash (and provided the software builds reproducibly)even older systems can be reproduced.
But it would be unreasonable to expect support for things that werebroken in old versions and have already been fixed in master.

I just got the binary version to install and seems to be working properly. I'vemanaged to install hello via guix package -i hello.
$ which hello/var/guix/profiles/per-user/user/guix-profile/bin/hello
So I think it is all fine and the problem is likely with the ebuild.
