Hi Guix!

When installing Guix on a new machine (foreign distro), substitute were not properly set up:

Permit downloading pre-built package binaries from the project's build farm? (yes/no) yes
/home/roptat/guix-install.sh: line 445: /root/.config/guix/current/share/guix/ci.guix.gnu.org.pub: No such file or directory

That was the latest version of the script downloaded from savannah. It downloaded and installed the 1.2.0 tarball.

I was able to fix that later manually, but let's make sure the script doesn't fail like that with the release :)

I ran the script, following the instructions in the manual, on a fresh
Debian system. I had no problems.

I also ran the script, not following the instructions exactly, but
instead doing `sudo ./guix-install.sh`, and it still worked fine. I
thought that maybe there were some 'sudo' vs 'sudo --login' shenanigans,
but nothing went wrong.

Can anybody reproduce this bug?

I don’t see how this can happen: ‘sys_create_store’ creates
~root/.config/guix/current, before ‘sys_authorize_build_farms’ runs.

Can you reproduce it, Julien?

Alternatively, could you paste the complete output of the
guix-install.sh script when it failed?

Thanks,
Ludo’.

I can't copy-paste easily to my email client right now, so here's a paste. I'll send the content later.

We see these lines:

which is evidence that ~root/.config/guix/current was created and is not
a dangling symlink. Further more, the binary tarball does contain that
.pub file:

So I don’t see what happened.

Julien, could it be that “something else” removed /root/.config or
/var/guix/profiles while it was running? Or… any other idea?

Thanks,
Ludo’.

Following our discussion on IRC, it seems likely that “something”
interfered with the installation process. Closing as “notabug”.

Thanks,
