<taylanub>I tried 'guix pull', it failed with "error: build failed: build of `/gnu/store/<hash>-guix-latest.drv' failed". and now it doesn't seem to use ~/.guix-profile by default anymore, saying e.g. "error: directory `/var/guix/profiles/default' is not owned by you" if I use 'guix package -u', listing no packages for 'guix package -I'; these work if I provide '-p ~/.guix-profile'
<civodul>taylanub: for the first, try "guix build --log-file .../guix-latest.drv"
<civodul>for the 2nd, ~/.guix-profile has always been a symlink to /var/guix/profiles/per-user/$USER
<taylanub>hilarious, I had installed guix via guix, so I can't run it now. :P I better just install it in my ~/usr and keep it there (previously I had removed that one after installing it with itself, maybe that was bad?)
<civodul>taylanub: hopefully you can still do /gnu/store/*guix-0.6/bin/guix ... no?
<taylanub>I could do that too, though I already have a compiled 0.6 somewhere that I can just 'make install', maybe that will do less headaches in the future?
<taylanub>not sure what the 'best' way of installing guix on another distro is
*jmd had to sacrifice his /nix volume to replace his faulty /var :(
<taylanub>so guix tries to use /var/guix/profiles/default for my profile and I can't figure out why. the guix package i use for 'guix' and 'guix-daemon' is pi871i9js44qhkjmkir0hv36s9r76bam-guix-0.6, it seems to run on 725n5w5vcpd9ihzr27vn7c731hx2ky0j-guile-2.0.11. I can unset $GUIX_PROFILE or set it to ~/.guix-profile and it makes no difference. I made ~/.guix-profile a symlink to /var/guix/profiles/per-user/tub/guix-profile manually by the
<taylanub>way, makes no difference. I used 'guix package -I' earlier today or yesterday without issues (it used my profile) so I do think the breakage happened after 'guix pull'. any ideas? BTW here's the end of the logfile for the failed 'guix pull': http://paste.lisp.org/display/143058
<DusXMT>I've installed guix (gNewSense 3.0, guix 0.6, guile 2.0.11), but no matter what command I use, it doesn't seem to do anything. The only time I can get any kind of response from it is with options like --help, --version, or if I use an invalid one
<DusXMT>Are there any extra steps I need to take to get it working than just make install and running the daemon?
