<alezost>tennix: you definitely need to "guix pull" before
<davexunit>'guix pull' downloads the latest version the master branch and compiles it, so it does take awhile.
<davexunit>if you find yourself doing this a lot, consider using your own git checkout of guix to reduce recompilation between upgrades.
<tennix>when i use guix to install my first package, i found guix update the repo
<alezost>ACTION confesses he doesn't use "guix pull" himself :-)
<alezost>tennix: if you didn't do "guix pull" after installing or if you don't use guix directly from the git repo, you have the old packages recipes, so for example, "guix package -i guix" installs an old snapshot of guix
<tennix>so "guix pull" is similar to "yum/apt-get update" or "pacman -Sy"?
