When I first tried to install one of the new build servers for
ci.guix.gnu.org I forgot that the firewall rules prevent these servers
from accessing ci.guix.gnu.org via its public IP address. I started the
installation process and waited …

When I realized that I had to first add the internal IP to /etc/hosts I
decided to cancel the installation, but no matter from what angle I hit
Ctrl-C or Ctrl-Z I could not abort the installation — which I hope
would have eventually timed out.

You mean that Ctrl-C wouldn’t work on the ‘guix system init’ process,
right? Is that behavior controlled by Newt, Mathieu?

Thanks,

Before running the guix process, newt is suspended and resumed right
after (see run-install-shell procedure). So it should reset the original
terminal settings. Maybe it doesn't, or it's an issue with kmscon.

I'll try to investigate.

Thanks,

Mathieu
