hi, I've read a bit about guix, and the idea seems great. I see NixOS using Nix as the package manager. Is there any linux distro using Guix? otherwise, is there a list of guix-friendly distros?
(I don't know even if asking this makes sense)
Guix aims to become its own standalone distro.
maybe at some point we should have a different name for the distro vs the package manager.
but for now, Guix should work within any GNU/Linux distro.
I hope y'all do name the distro differently; "geeks" almost hurts my feelings.
handheldCar: guix reads 'geesh' in catalan. :)
and means chalk. :)
Are the nix paths here to stay?
/nix/store will become /gnu/store
So if you have to patch a source file so that it uses /nix/store/.../bin/sh instead of /bin/sh, how do you do that: with a $var for the ...?
handheldCar: yes, 'gnu-build-system' does that by default: it patches all shebangs
it's been one year without /bin/sh :-)

Do you do anything when "source file ... newer than compiled"?
don't worry about it, but running 'make' should fix it, assuming that the source file is in the makefile.
gnu-system.am, that is.
