Ludo!
It has been far too long that I followed up on this. I have just now return to this project.
Setting HOME, as you last suggested, got me past the `make check` problems from before. Thank you.
However, `make check` still apparently halts after:
....PASS: tests/guix-package-net.shPASS: tests/guix-package.shPASS: tests/guix-build.shPASS: tests/guix-environment.shPASS: tests/builders.scm
The tests apparently stop running. Top agrees with me.
At this point, all checks have PASSed except guix-lint.sh, which is the single file tarred up in checkFAIL.tar.gz
LOG.tar.gz contains logs of stdout/stderr from each step so far: bookstrap, configure, make, make check. and also a file detailing the version of RPM installed on my CentOS 7 box.
Note - All this is still trying to build based on git, viz:
git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/guix.git --branch v0.10.0 guix
.... and still of course performing the ./bootstrap.
I will in a separate message detail what happens when I try and build from the release tarball.
However, I would like to understand what the issues are with building using git. Is there a good explanation on the possible issues that are avoided by using the release tarball?
THanks,
Malcolm

With the release tarball, the ‘configure’ script and documents (manpages and info) are already built, so autotools, help2man etc. arenot required to build guix.
The failing one in the guix-lint.log:
Toggle snippet (13 lines)<...>;;; Failed to autoload make-session in (gnutls):;;; ERROR: missing interface for module (gnutls)Backtrace:<...>In guix/build/download.scm: 256: 0 [tls-wrap #<input-output: socket 10> "static.nvd.nist.gov"]
guix/build/download.scm:256:17: In procedure tls-wrap:guix/build/download.scm:256:17: In procedure module-lookup: Unbound variable: make-session'<...>
It’s due to missing ‘guile-gnutls’ in your host system,and the ‘cve’ checker of ‘guix lint’ need it to access the URLthrough HTTPS. Seems like we should skip those tests if the gnutlsmodule is not available.
Once build guix on your host (it uses glibc, guile,guile-gnutls, etc on your host system), you can install (or withoutsubstitutes, build) guix from guix, which will use glibc,guile-gnutls, etc in guix (all in /gnu/store).
Thanks your report!

Hi, Malcolm,
And apologies for the delay!

Could you try again and run ‘pstree’ at this point, so we see exactlywhat’s going on?

tests/guix-lint.log reads this:
Toggle snippet (24 lines)++ guix lint dummyaccepted connection from pid 1580, user mec+ out='t-guix-lint-1510/foo.scm:10:17: dummy-42: sentences in description should be followed by two spaces; possible infraction at 13t-guix-lint-1510/foo.scm:9:14: dummy-42: synopsis should start with an upper-case letter or digitt-guix-lint-1510/foo.scm:9:14: dummy-42: synopsis should not start with the package name;;; Failed to autoload make-session in (gnutls):;;; ERROR: missing interface for module (gnutls)Backtrace:In ice-9/boot-9.scm:

guix/build/download.scm:256:17: In procedure tls-wrap:guix/build/download.scm:256:17: In procedure module-lookup: Unbound variable: make-session'
This error is due to the fact that GnuTLS (which is needed by the ‘cve’linter) is missing on the system, but tests/guix-lint.sh shouldn’t betesting the ‘cve’ linter in the first place. Fixed ina61cd1d0fd642c45bc61ef52f09d8f62ce3976b8.
Thanks!
