Hi, I tried building guix from the AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/guix/ However, it failed and asked me to email you the results. Please let me know if there is anything else you need from me. -Dave ============================================================================Testsuite summary for GNU Guix 0.11.0============================================================================# TOTAL: 570# PASS: 562# SKIP: 5# XFAIL: 0# FAIL: 3# XPASS: 0# ERROR: 0============================================================================See ./test-suite.logPlease report to firstname.lastname@example.org============================================================================ FAIL: tests/guix-download.shFAIL: tests/store.scmFAIL: tests/lint.scm
I think your ISP does DNS hijacking: it resolves the “does-not-exist”hostname used in this test and other tests to an IP. The tests expectan name lookup error, and instead get this, hence the error. I think there’s not much we can do on your side, but you shoulddefinitely complain to your ISP. :-) Thanks,Ludo’.
Dear David, The 3 failing tests -- listed below -- are all relative to connectionover Internet. As Ludo spotted out :

I do not know how you run the test suite and I am totally ignorantabout Arch Linux, but could you check if everything is right aboutyour Internet connection when running the test suite; especially ifyou use kind of isolation.
I am inclined to close this bug because it is not coming from ourside. I mean we have already enough open bugs. ;-)But, let us know how could we help you to resolve this. And maybe thediscussion could be moved on email@example.com.
PS:Note the 3 same tests are failing too about the version220.127.116.1189-0ed97 -- that you have sent me privately.
All the best,simon

Unfortunately the failure still exists on Arch Linux:
