I have this problem to install Guix System:
[Attachment]

After this, the screen turns black and nothing is displayed.

I first downloaded the Guix System, extracted the iso with this command: "unxz" and then burned it to a 4.7GB DVD-R with "Brasero". I did not sign the downloaded file from the beginning

Good morning,

This sounds similar to http://issues.guix.gnu.org/44257. Do you have an ATI video card? They are known for problematic hardware.
Please try the two work-arounds suggested there: adding ‘radeon’ to the GRUB kernel command line, or burning the ‘latest’ ISO if that doesn't help.
Kind regards,

Thanks, yes it is related, I was able to install the system by putting "nomodeset" in grub.[Attachment 1]With this problem: https://issues.guix.gnu.org/43985Which is probably related to GDM or graphics, I was able to log in with the root user. I then updated the system with the "guix pull" and "guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm" commands. To apply the updates, I rebooted the system and then I now have this problem:[Attachment 2][Attachment 3]My graphics card: NVIDIA GT720

Tobias,I have tried both of those options, new current image and appending radeon on the kernel load line, but to no avail.It never reaches login on tty1, but I can switch to tty2 and update guix and run commands.The graphics card I have is an AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7800Can the nouveau driver be installed and then tweak the X config file to use and load the nouveau, (if that is the one I need),driver?

Guix has some incompatibilities like (issues.guix.gnu.org/43985) with my computer.What are these? what's the solution?

Your issues are post-install, I think, so the installer workedproperly, so Guix basically works. However:
Possibly you will not get a good experience because (if I understandit correctly) Linux-libre might have various incompatibilities becauseit is deliberately lacking non-free firmware.
You might work around the graphics issues by using nomodeset orblacklisting nouveau and then using uvesafb likehttps://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-guix/2020-04/msg00320.html.I’m not sure if all that is really necessary.
Your 7.jpg shows this message:
[ 18.727379] usb 1-1.3: Fatal – failed to load firmware
This may be because Linux-libre

I do not know if you deliberately did not reply to all. I hope you donot mind me quoting you.

Guix will not provide support for that, but there is a Guix channelwhere others are doing that. (I cannot link to it and of course it isa trade-off because parts of Linux (instead of Linux-libre) arenonfree.) The uvesafb solution I linked to in my last mail is analternative that I use for one old laptop of mine that does not makemuch use of your GPU and is therefore slower and may or may not bemore power-hungry, I don’t know.
soheilkhanalipur reported problems with an Nvidia GPU. I had not seenthat before, maybe the above also helps. I do not know ifsoheilkhanalipur’s USB issues are still problematic.
(Sorry I accidently sent out a draft e-mail before, but it was mostlycomplete.)

Does this mean I have non-free firmware?I put "modprobe.blacklist=i915" in grub, but the problem is not resolved.I am confused! Is there no solution?

Do you have another Linux Live Distro at hand to check what the device atUSB 1-1.3 actually is? This might help.

The problem was solved!This time, during the installation process, I put the language, keyboard and all the names in English, and I was able to log in with my user (not the root) and update it. I hope this problem is solved soon. Yes, as I thought, this is related to issues.guix.gnu.org/43985 http://issues.guix.gnu.org/43985
