Hi,
Installation failed when i tried installingguix-system-install-1.0.0.x86_64-linux.iso in Virtual Box 6.0.2 r128162 onWindows 10.
The VM had 8192 Mb RAM, 64 Gb harddrive and 2 CPUs. Everything else wasdefault.
During the install I had selected
- language for installation: English- territory: United states- Graphical install using a terminal based interface- timezone: America- timezone: Detroit- keyboard layout: English (US)- variant: English (intl., with AltGr dead keys)
Here are pictures of the traceback:

I had used these same options, to my knowledge, in a previous install whichcompleted successfully.
Thank you for Guix and please let me know if there is more I can do tohelp.
Thanks,Matt

Could it be that at first, the install failed (e.g. because of anetwork error that sometimes happened before it was fixed in currentunreleased Guix) and then you chose to retry the installer? If thisis what you did, the option to retry should probably be removed; Ithink Mathieu said unmounting and remounting was not working anyway.If this is not what you did, then this is a new bug.

please also confirm you have verified the authenticity of the image asshown inhttps://www.gnu.org/software/guix/manual/en/html_node/USB-Stick-and-DVD-Installation.html
also please show the sha512 checksum of the uncompressed iso image, ifyou can
it (rarely) happens that the downloaded image gets corrupted somewherein the process

Hi,
If I read the gpg output correctly, then it downloaded okay. My experiencewith gpg is limited, so here is the exact output of --verify:
mintty screen dump
$ gpg --verify guix-system-install-1.0.0.x86_64-linux.iso.xz.sig gpg: assuming signed data in'guix-system-install-1.0.0.x86_64-linux.iso.xz' gpg: Signature madeWed, May 1, 2019 4:12:23 PM EDT gpg: using RSA key 3CE464558A84FDC69DB40CFB090B11993D9AEBB5gpg: Good signature from "Ludovic Courtès " [unknown] gpg: aka "Ludovic Courtès " [unknown] gpg: aka "Ludovic Courtès (Inria) " [unknown] gpg: WARNING: Thiskey is not certified with a trusted signature! gpg: There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.Primary key fingerprint: 3CE4 6455 8A84 FDC6 9DB4 0CFB 090B 1199 3D9AEBB5

The SHA512 I generated was:
mintty screen dump
$ sha512sum guix-system-install-1.0.0.x86_64-linux.iso 5b295c0db41c8ea896fc7eb693d25c311d473cbcc0ee95b959b2b63a8026a604f19d2f3299b1dc1451fc99459639a2f8d340204a5946bc5f921a402bf11bb8e3*guix-system-install-1.0.0.x86_64-linux.iso

Regarding the "retry" option in the installer, I can't say whether or not Iused it. I attempted several times with various configurations and don'trecall the specific one which produced the output I gave you.
Anecdotally, I can say that "Unable to locate keymap" error occurredwhenever MATE was selected for my DE. I was able to complete the installwithout a problem for GNOME, Enlightenment, and OpenBox.
Thank you for assisting me,Matt

you can see this bug has been merged with #35700 that in turn is relatedto #35543: "Installer cannot be restarted after a failed install"
are you able to reproduce this bug when _not_ restarting the installer?
Toggle quote (3 lines)> Anecdotally, I can say that "Unable to locate keymap" error occurred> whenever MATE was selected for my DE.
can you please try to reproduce this bug and file a new one if thishappens?
