First let me apologize if I have missed something, I'm a new user of
guix and know only the basics about compilation processes.
I am using guix on the Arch distribution, and installed it using the
shell installer script. My first tests seem to indicate that guix is
I then tried to install Avogadro, but met the following error when
make: Leaving directory '/tmp/guix-build-avogadro-1.2.0.drv-0/build'
make: *** [Makefile:155: all] Error 2
command "make" "-j" "4" failed with status 2
note: keeping build directory `/tmp/guix-build-avogadro-1.2.0.drv-0'
with exit code 1
build of /gnu/store/pc3pdcpm0mwbfvymwizfs14mdfb6qa5x-avogadro-1.2.0.drv
I retried to build it by running guix build avogadro -K to look at the
makefile and found at line 155
cd /tmp/guix-build-avogadro-1.2.0.drv-0/build && $(MAKE) -f
This is the first line of the makefile where $(MAKE) appears, but I
could not find where it was defined (I suppose it is defined as make
-j4, but it is not explicit in the makefile or in
environment-variables). This makes me assume that the error comes from
the $(MAKE), but I'm not knowledgeable enough to verify it.
Feel free to ask me anything or to explain me what I could have done wrong.
Thank you for your work and for your time,
