Hi! I've installed ordinary guix system following graphical installer, but can't boot it, here what I got after installation complete:

I ran into a similar issue with a computer I installed Guix on. Itwould not complete the boot up process. I am not sure if I wasexperiencing the same issue you are as I did not submit it to a Guixmailing list. I got help solving it on #guix. What worked for me wasto add the Linux kernel argument `nomodeset` to my system configuration.In the operating system declaration of the system configuration I added:
``` (kernel-arguments (append (list "nomodeset") %default-kernel-arguments))```

Hm, I've added these lines to the etc/config.scm, tried to boot again and it doesn't seem to change anything...

Note that /etc/config.scm doesn’t have any effect in itself. You needto run ‘guix system reconfigure /etc/config.scm’ to deploy the changesyou made.

If setting nomodeset is the answer, there is a trick you can use in GRUB to set it before boot.Apparently in GRUB, you:
1. Press e2. Edit the linux ... line to add nomodeset as an option3. Press ctrl X
I just found the instructions here https://duckduckgo.com/?q=grub+nomode+set
At least give that a go and report back if it works.

Hi Brendan! It works, I can proceed to system now, but terminal only, my WM (Enlightenment) cannot initialize. I think I can give a try to some other WMs and check how it goes.

Thanks, I've planned to read docs about it right after I can boot to guix :)

Looks like you are running into many of the problems I had when Iinstalled Guix on a computer.

If you were able to manually use nomodeset in Grub then you should beable to add that snippet for the Linux kernel argument nomodeset that Ishared and reconfigure your system. Then you will not need to manuallyenter nomodeset in Grub each time you boot.

Another WM would be the leaner solution, however maybe uvesafb (whichis also used in the installer image) can help you set up GNOME etc.:

I've read it, and I guess that my graphics is not supported because there is no /dev/dri directory. Thank you!
