<lfam>I misread your problem originally. I thought you simply ran out of inodes, which can happen with the ext4 defaults sometimes. But you are sying the filesystem is using more inodes than exist? Can you share the error message?
<lfam>I think that 3 million inodes is way more than enough to get started
<emacsomancer>when I do `guix gc` I get the error: `guix gc: error: build failed: setting synchronous mode: unable to open database file`
<emacsomancer>and guix gc --verify=repair,contents doesn't seem to help
<lfam>That sounds like something is wrong the the store database, which is located in /var/guix/db
<emacsomancer>so you don't think that's connected with the inode issue? (having no inodes seems to mess up lots of things, I'm unable to open another emacs --daemon, to run `screen` etc.)
<lfam>I'm confused about the inode thing. Does `tune2fs` report that you are out of inodes?
