Hi There,
When someone taking the manual-cli installation of GuixOS, And reaching where he will fill the config.scm, Parts of it really annoying to fill like UUID. If possible change it to the partition name only like sda1,xvda1..etc and let guix take the needed uuid from there (or any other method possible).
ThX!

When installing Guix System manually, you are free to choose how torefer to devices: by their /dev name (not recommended), by UUID, or byfile system label.

The graphical installer is meant to simplify the initial configuration:you do the initial installation with it, and from there you can tweakthe generated config—easier than starting from a blank page.
I’m closing this bug because I don’t see anything more we could do.
Thanks,Ludo’.
