Hello,
Thank you for all the work you've put in the Guixsd release. I haveused guix on top of a Debian distribution for some time, but with therelease I wanted to try and install it on its own.
I'm trying to install guix on my system. I have the 1.0.1 patch, but Ihad the same problem with 1.0.0.
I already have a debian system with an encrypted drive, and I would liketo erase it with an encrypted Guix system with a separate /home partition.
I have chosen my language (français).
My location (France).
I have chosen the graphical installer.
I have chosen my timezone (Europe / Paris).
I have chosen my keyboard (Français / Français (sans touche morte Sun):this one seems to be correct but I don't have much information. Itwould be awesome if I could test it in a text box).
I have chosen the guided installation with encryption.
I have chosen my hard drive, the only option:ATA WDC WD15EARS-60M (scsi) /dev/sda 1500 GB gpt
I have chosen the option to have a separate /home.
And then I get the exception. I copy it from another keyboard, but Ihope that I copied it correctly.

We fixed a bug similar to what you describe in 1.0.1:
https://issues.guix.gnu.org/issue/35783
Can you confirm that the backtrace you posted comes from 1.0.1 and not1.0.0? (It seems to be from 1.0.1 accordingly to the line numbers, butbetter be on the safe side.)

Is it 100% reproducible for you?
Could you post the output of “fdisk -l /dev/sda” (hit Ctrl-Alt-F3 andrun that command)?
Does the problem occur when you choose the “manual partitioning” methodinstead of “guided partitioning”?
Thanks,Ludo’.

After backing up my data, I re-downloaded the guix image from thewebsite, burnt it, and booted it.  The boot screen reads"1.0.1-1.8204295".
I also had an error during the loading with an error in finalizationthread: Bad file descriptor (twice, reproducible) but no additionalinfo, right after ssh-keygen.  Is there a log file for that?  I hadverylittle time to catch it.

Except for the bytestructures (but with the same loop at 863:17), Ireproduced it 4/4 times with a full reboot, and 4/4 times without afullreboot.

So I use the same language and such and select the manual partitioning:I get to a screen with the 3 partitions already present on my 1.5Tdisk: - 1 537MB fat32 boot,esp /boot/efi - 2 256MB ext2 - 3 1500GB
If I select the second partition, I get another reproducible (2/2 withfull reboot) backtrace:

I've managed to avoid the problem with a manual partitioningprocedure, selecting my hard drive, selecting "gpt" to get rid of theexisting ext2 partition.
Then I go to create a single root partition (with the idea ofre-installing guix with the default cryptsetup options once the ext2partition is forgotten), but then I get another "null pointerdereference" exception -- this one is longer :(

I reboot and the partition table is erased (good thing I updated mybackups just before the operation ;) less so that I don't have anoperating system on my main computer and have to use this one :(
However, selecting the automatic method for whole disk encryptionstill gives the first error, and trying to add a partition manuallygives the second.

I wanted to give it before the GPT erasure but I thought I could saveitto / on the Guix installer, and it did not work.  So I only have thelogafter the procedure:Disk /dev/ram0: 64 MiB, 67108864 bytes, 131072 sectorsUnits: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytesSector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytesI/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes

I remember that a similar error happened when I had the previous GPTtable, but I don't remember the exact wording.  So maybe there isstill a backup of the GPT table that still has the ext2 partition?
Anyways, I have saved all my data and have a rainy-days computer athand, so the situation is not so bad.

So this one is easy, it's yet another unsupported fs type. Maybe the fixwould be to get rid of libparted fs types -> <user-partition> fs typesconversions like discussed with Danny.
Otherwise, we'll have to maintain conversions for every kind ofpartitions in user-fs-type-name, user-fs-type->mount-type andpartition-filesystem-user-type procedures.

These are annoying but harmless.

That’s terrible. :-/ That’s on x86_64, right?
(In the meantime you could the “manual” installation method:https://www.gnu.org/software/guix/manual/fr/html_node/Installation-manuelle.html.)
As Mathieu notes, there’s one bug for which the fix is clear, but thenull-pointer exception is pretty bad, especially if we cannot reproduceit easily.
Let’s see what can be done…
Thank you for testing thoroughly and for providing a detailed bug report!

Hello,
I have issued
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda 
for a couple of minutes, then create a new gpt partition table withcfdisk (and write it) in the hope that I would be able to proceed withthe guided installer with a fresh partition table, but I still get thenull pointer dereference. So i guess the ext2 partition is notresponsible for this one.
Yes, it's a x86_64 (intel i3).

The success error and pcspkr are also printed when running theinstaller.
I have 2 partitions: /dev/sda1 is the 512MB ESP partition, and/dev/sda2 is the fully encrypted disk (named 'guix-root'). Except forthe keyboard configuration, UUIDs and default user, I have kept thedefault 'desktop' configuration.scm.
There is no disk activity, no fan activity and it does not respond toC-M-Fn, but it does reboot on C-M-DEL.
And if I re-run the graphical installer, I still get the null pointerdereference.

So I will revert to having guix on top of another distro for now.


Best regards,
Vivien
